It's been a long time.
Things got pretty tough there for a while.
I won't bore you with a long story, but just imagine hospitals and a precious child and you will get the picture.
We are entering Christmas having come out the other side in one piece ( read - broken into a thousand bits and put back together by support, love and care).
It is the old cliche that at times like this you know who will be there when the going gets tough.
Thank you for the messages and e.mails - they meant a lot. If I didn't reply it was simply because I couldn't.
A new year looms. I am still working full time and loving it, but life is busy . We are entering the phase of GCSEs with my eldest. I am not at all too proud to admit the work is too hard at times for me!
I will begin to renter the world of blogging as I am not ready to let go completely. I have been reading my favourite blogs over the past months and although silent I have loved the escape it brings!
I wish you all a very Happy Christmas with whoever you are spending this season with. Be gentle with those who are close to you. The threads of life are so very delicate and can be quickly and easily broken. Cherish the moments you have here and now with those you love.
