. The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unlovable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy…It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all… Continue reading »
. 1. You are not your body and your body is not you but you best look after each other anyway. You might be together for a while. 2. You’ll never have more potential than you do right now, so find a way to use more of what you’ve… Continue reading »

. I’ve been a bit remiss with writing, I know, but I’ve needed some ‘me’ time, and some healing time… The rehoming of Digby hit me – HARD – and still does some days, but its thankfully getting less intense with each day – and I can now at least

Sunday morning is usually a bit of a special day in our home, because it’s the one day of the week that my Love and I get to have breakfast together. Alas, today my Love has had to go to the next town, as the boss has agreed to help… Continue reading »
