Remember me?
Won't be surprised if you don't! I've been missing in action a long enough time now and I've had my wonderful and caring blog friends being so understanding, loving and supportive. Thank you so much for your caring messages and support. It's why I want to keep blogging.
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year !
Lets hope this year is better and prosperous for each one of us.

Looking back ......
The year that was 2008. A lot happened. Some wonderful and some truly sad. The greatest moment being the birth of my niece at the start of the year and the most painful being the losing my father in law at the end of the year. good and bad go hand in hand , I guess and accept it too. Then I guess the next step is to move on forward. Which I hope to do and I'm trying to!
So maybe I should say looking forwrd ..... to the days ahead. As usaul I first think of repairing the messes I make. I've been a bad blogger all year and that's the first thing I want to change!! Lol..I hope this year will be more bloggered (? ) Are we allowed to make up new words? I really don't know whether I have any readers anymore! And I cannot blame them ....who likes to read a blog where no one writes? If I do have any readers left (I'll be very grateful for their patience with me !)I promise to show my latest projects.
First of all I want to catch up with reading. Lately I've been trying to get back to it and it's just not happening.I miss reading.There are talks of a book club out here and I'm hoping so much that it materializes. Books here are expensive and I cannot afford to keep buying each one .
But seriously,on the crafts front, I do intend to make more progress and learn a some more on knitting. I've been knitting and have actually braved it out to knit a baby sweater on my own.Wish me luck friends ...I'm so excited and scared too. And I'm so proud to have learn't a few knit techniques like picking up stitches, and a little bit of shaping etc.
I've been toying around with the sewing machine and though I don't seem to be too neat , I'm starting to like it. No my attempts tell a totally different story , I know. But I think this is another craft I'd like to persue.
There are so many things and I really don't want to make this too long. So I'll keep updating you with my many interests and hobbies and hopefully some projects too.

Hey cheer up, dnt say "who likes to read a blog where no one writes". truly speaking i did just that. actually i came late on ur site, i saw u on ravelry and then chkd ur blog. i'd left one comment also. u just cant imagine how happy i am to see u back blogging. u might not be knowing me, but i feel i know u very well through ur blog. i was very sad reading ur last post, didnt knew wt happened and didnt dared to ask being a stranger to u. well past is past, one has to move on in life. i can understand the pain of losing someone, as i too have gone through it. well but thats life. ok ok not being too emotional now, just take care and pray for those who are gone and smile for those who are with u. i am sorry i am very talkative. dnt mind pls. allah hafiz

I'm so happy you are back Yasmin. My thoughts have been with you during this tough time.

I am a member of a book group in Abu Dhabi, we read one book a month. It's a great way to meet people. I'd be happy to lend you some of the books that we have read if you ever come to Abu Dhabi and/or I am in Al Ain!
Good luck with the knitting and don't forget, there are a few of us here that will be happy to help if you get stuck!

PS. On losing readers, I'm sure that people will come back after a while, once they realise that you are blogging again!

Happy '09 and welcome back, Yasmin!! Can't wait to see all of your crafting pursuits - you are amazingly quick with your projects.

Yasmin said...

Thank you, Preeti! Good to see you here.

So good to see you back blogging and happy new year again, Yasmin.
I have lots to relate with in your post. A few weeks before Christmas we lost our mom. Then a few weeks after the holidays, my niece gave birth to a healthy baby girl. It seems easy to accept the miracle of birth, and too hard to face the reality of death...
On crafting, I am thinking along the same lines. I want to knit some more, and advance my knitting skills. I also plan to set up my sewing machine, so I could put it to use ;)

Yasmin,
Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. You must have gone through a lot of emotional stress.

I certainly missed reading your blog... visited it regularly to check out any new posts.
I am looking forward to your upcoming posts. :-)
