A thousand apologies to you, my friend. I have been missing in action, but I am back! I took a small break in 2014 and then I had to take another extended break after that! It was mostly down to personal health reasons. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and later with fibromyalgia. These conditions were incredibly painful at the beginning and made life quite uncomfortable until my diagnosis and medication were under control. I can happily say that I am feeling almost normal again.
In fact, I’m feeling so good that I have bought a vintage Dutch bike and I’m now a regular commuter around the city and to work. My bike is an old Sparta and she is 32 years old. She migrated from Holland to Melbourne with her original owner in the 80s. Her name is Olive and I’m in love. She is a joy to ride and I’m excited about getting about town in true Madame Bonbon style. 😉
I am back to blogging this week. You can read about my life in Melbourne, Olive by bicycle and my crafty party decor projects.
