About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

With Sympathy

I loathe last minute cards but sympathy cards are the worst...I never know what to put on them.  So I have written a quote for the insert and popped a simple cross on the front.





This week has also seen me making a four layer, lemon Curd and vanilla buttercream birthday cake with vintage gold dusted dairy free chocolate roses.






Finally, I don't normally blog about this, it just feels too negative but this week has proven to be week long negativity and all because I'm deaf!  There's a problem with the car, it makes a noise randomly but I've been describing the noise wrong so the mechanic is totally baffled as apparently nothing could possibly sound like that and to diagnose it it would mean replacing every single part.  Thankfully a neighbour has heard the noise and we now know it's the alternator belt.  I was describing the noise wrong, I couldn't hear it properly.

Secondly the heating has packed in.  There is currently no heating and it's FREEZING!  Apparently I should have heard the air escape {similar to the noise of air escaping when bleeding the radiators} from the pressure valve when I repeatedly re-pressured the boiler.  Now it's a major repair and could take a long time all because I'm too deaf to hear it.

Last year I had lot's of issues with the fridge freezer and it all came down to the fact that I couldn't hear it switch on and off.  In the end it had to be replaced because I had no idea whether it was working or not and things were going off...all because I was too deaf to hear it.

I had thought I was okay with not being able to hear...yet here I am sat shivering as is everyone else and it's my fault.  Recently I had wondered why I always had so much negativity and things going wrong now I know why...I'm deaf and that means I break things and cause problems.  There will always be things on my "cannot" list because of my lack of hearing but I never really fully realised how much it had a negative affect on my life and how it impacted on the way I let others down.  I suppose this is just one other thing to adjust too.
