• 2019 - the year of tears

    This year has really been a difficult one for me. I think I've spent more time crying this year than I have collectively over the past 10 years. I've never before been on such an emotional journey before and I don't really have the words to describe how I feel.
    I've been so fortunate in my life to not have lost many people I love. It's something I've always been aware of and I really feel so very blessed to have the opportunity to share so much of my life with the people I love.  In February I lost my Granny and that grief was something I hadn't ever felt before. I'm not going to wrote a post on this because it's incredibly difficult and such a personal thing.

    Scamp has also not been doing well. In February we celebrated his 18th birthday. It's so incredible to think that I have shared more than half my life with him. At the beginning of April we noticed Scamp wasn't quite himself. The week leading up to my birthday we feared the worst but fortunately after a lot of tests the vet determined it was his gallbladder and he is being treated for it. He has to have a series of tests again next week to check in and see how he is doing. It's incredibly stressful.

    This whole year has taken a toll on me. I try my best to keep my chin up and act "normal" but I have extreme lows at times. I have a tendency to retreat into myself when I am like this - fortunately JP knows this and pulls me out of that place. Over the past few months I have realised how important it is to allow people to be there for you when you aren't doing great. The support system I have is incredibly valuable and keeps me going.

    I am going to try to get back to some blogging and be more active on my social media accounts - it might be slow going but one thing I have realised is that I miss this space.

    Big Hugs,
    Charlene XXX
