To hell and back
The last ten days have not been good ones in this family. We have had to deal with family issues which have been devastating for all concerned. The love and loyalty of my eldest daughter for her partner were just discarded like rubbish as he turned his back on her and walked away, and we have had to pick up the pieces and try and put her life back on track. She has a good circle of friends who will support her and she will be back home next week for a few days so we can make a fuss of her and help her to heal.
The little posy of Nasturtiums given me by a neighbour yesterday helped cheer me up so much - until you have a handful like this in a jug, you don't realize that they have a perfume.
Meanwhile, in my absence, my husband had been browsing at the car boot sale, and came home with this . . .
I know . . .
If the blog stays quiet it is because my health has let me down rather - an ongoing chest infection which I seem to have had all year has suddenly turned into an even worse one and I am now on steroids and a double dose of anti-biotics. My nerves are in shreds too, so I am not feeling exactly cheerful and chatty right now. I'll try and get a post together sometime over the weekend.
