9th Blog Birthday & Life Update

Hi everyone, well, it's been a while hasn't it, apologies for that!  Unfortunately, life as usual, has not gone to plan at all again this year and it's been a very difficult one in many ways.

In the middle of February this year my father was taken into hospital after feeling quite ill for several days.  Little did we know that over the course of the next 8 months, he would become even iller and be in and out of hospital, mostly in.
All while myself and my mum were trying to manage at home, coping with problems that he would usually have dealt with.  Coping with doing daily jobs that he would usually have done, as both my mum and I have ill health (as some of you may know from reading my older posts).  To say it's been a struggle and exhausting and stressful, is an extreme understatement.  I have also had another round of counselling during this time, but I will write about that separately.  If you want to read about my counselling experiences from my last round of sessions, you can do that

After everything my father had been through while in hospital, (I won't go into details), we fully expected him to be on the mend as much as possible and even come home or at least go into a care home, as his health was never going to be very good again.  But sadly, after suddenly going downhill over a couple of days, on the 11th of October he passed away..

As you can imagine, this has been a massive blow and extremely hard to deal with.  It's been just over 3 weeks as I post this but feels like only a few days.  It's a real shock to the system.  Some days I feel I'm coping, other days I feel like I'm drowning in tears.  Thankfully I have some amazing friends around that have really been a great support and my mum and I are doing our best to help each other through this terrible time.

Today is my blogs 9th birthday and I would usually always do a giveaway, but hopefully this year you will understand why I have decided not to.  I will try and do one for you all just before Christmas instead.
Once again, thank you so much for staying with me over the years and I hope to write and get back into more of a routine soon, as I do have several posts in mind.

Bye for now
