I'm sorry I haven't been blogging but sometimes life just over takes you and you become so absorbed by trying to deal with all the crap it's handing out that doing the things you love are very low on your list of priorities.
The past 6 weeks have been a complete nightmare with one blow to our family after another and there are days I honestly don't think I can take anymore. Two of my three children have had relationship breakdowns, we have had two family bereavements and then to top it all last week my darling husband was assaulted in a coffee shop of all places, he is now recovering from a head injury but seeing him lying unconcious in a pool of blood still gives me nightmares and I don't think I'll ever forget.
But for all our bad luck we have found that our family is strong, we stick together and support each other however we can. Even though we live more than 300 miles apart as soon as the kids heard about G they wanted to come to support me. After weeks of being there for them they were there for me.
I'm sharing this not for you sympathy or pity but to apologise for being absent and to say I'll be back I'm not sure when but I will be back and in the meantime I'll dip into blogland when I can to try and keep up with you all.
All the best to you all
