...taking some quiet time.

I want to say thank you for the lovely, encouraging words on my last post. They meant an awful lot. I think I'll be able to put my more serious thoughts out there on occasion without being terrified now.

My nana died at the weekend. I'm ok, and I have lots of support from Dave and our family and friends, but I'm going to take a time out from blogging and step back from the internet a bit for a wee while. I generally want this blog to be a happy place and though happy things are still happening, it feels a bit wrong to write about them at the moment. It feels a bit weird even posting this, but I get worried when bloggers I frequently read stop posting, and I don't want to do that to anyone else.

I'll be back soon. x

Oh no :( Sorry to hear that sad news. Taking a break is never a bad thing, just make sure you take all the time you need (and make sure you come back to us!).

I missed the post about your mum when it was posted and just read it now - so moving. It's not easy to share things that are so personal but I'm glad you did. Your mum sounds like an incredibly strong woman and it seems to me that you have inherited that trait.

Take care.

So sorry to hear about your nana Lisa-Marie, sending lots of love and light your way. It's understandable to take a bit of personal time and stop blogging for a bit, I'd feel the exact same way, take some time for yourself and come back when you're feeling good again xxx

Big big hugs and lots of love!
