Hi I'm Sarah

Hiya I'm Sarah also known as Pumpkin. My main disability I inherited from my mother and over the years picked up a few more conditions. I'm convinced that my body hates me. 

I used to be an accountant but due to health issues I have been long term off work (+ 10 years). I currently spend my time either spinning, knitting, crocheting or weaving depending on what my body will allow for the day. I am kept in check by my adorable dog and I have a couple of koi lurking in my pond. By the way I'm actually blond... a friend dyed my hair black for Halloween a few years back. 

I hope you are all well.
