Grieving

Recently my family had to farewell a loved one, my Mum’s older brother Len passed away. Grieving is different for everyone, but always hard. It has also happened too often in the last few years. I’m having to learn a whole new way of grieving. Glad to have my comfort kitty by my side in this time of loss.

Year of Change

This year has been a crazy, like a roller coaster of change. Life got in the way and I stopped doing a lot of things that brought me joy and calmness. I started a new job, brought and moved into my very own house, I dealt with loss and grief. I’m still struggling through some of these changes.

This job gives me the opportunity to try something new, to learn new things and challenge myself.

Miss You, Nan

I still struggle to find the words to explain how much I love and miss my beautiful Nan. For the first time in my life I have lived a whole year without her, but has that really been lived? Feels more like surviving than living. Because of COVID and everything the world was/is facing our times together where cut short.

Back to Event

I attended my first event in two years and it felt amazing. I have been in a bit of a slump lately, feeling quite flat and attending this event and seeing my amazing con family. It gave me the boost I so desperately needed. I feel so rejuvenated and reminded of how much love, fun, friendship and memories I have with these people.
