I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to blogging, and I can't promise that normal service will be resumed immediately, but I'm certainly going to do my best.
I'm now as confident as I can be that my 'cyber stalker'/'troll', whatever you want to call her, knows nothing at all about this blog so I feel safe to return. For a long time I really didn't feel much like blogging at all. There has been so much going on in my life to drag me down that I gave in to that 'ugggh, I just can't be bothered' feeling. But you know what? It's a beautiful day, the sun is shining, my husband has just given me chocolate and told me he loves me, and what the hell... life can throw at me whatever it wants, I'm just going to take it as it comes and enjoy it one day at a time.
So, what's been happening while I've been away?
Hmmm, I got to spend some time with my mum and daughters. We've got ourselves in a right financial pickle....seriously, everything is going pear shaped and I'm doing my best to sort out the mess. My fridge broke in May and still hasn't been replaced. I keep looking on freecycle but very few come up and when they do it's always somewhere I can't get too. The laptop fried and my mum had to come to our rescue, paying for a new hard drive to be installed. My husband was rushed to hospital...that's his third stroke now :( fortunately it was only a small one and he's recovering very well, but it's left him feeling
very down even more down than he was to start with.
All in all I think I've just about given up on 2013. Do you think we could just scratch the rest of it and skip straight to next year and start afresh? No? I didn't think so. Oh well, better make the best of it then :)
