I'm back!

Four years since I've been here. Lots of changes in my life. My darling husband Eric died last year , 26th September 2016. My ex husband also died in March of 2016. My two children had a terrible time because they lost two fathers within 6 months of each other.

I've lost several friends too - altogether 2016/17 has not been a great year, although I am coming to terms with the loss of Eric.

I am back at work - a long story - two days before my 70th birthday in 2015, I was offered a job!  I work for a dear friend of 40 plus years, he is a veterinarian. When Eric became sick, I stopped working to look after him. After he died, I had a couple of months off, then returned to work this year in March.  I am glad I did because it has helped greatly with the grieving process, being busy as stopped me feeling so sad...  However, I only work three days per week - I found five days was just too tiring - I have to make allowances for myself, I am not getting any younger.

Our lovely Tonkinese cat, Dusty, was stolen in June 2014, and we were given another little cat, a tabby called Pie. Then in May 2015, I acquired a lovely little cat, all white, long hair, with a blue eye and a brown eye, his name is Arnie. These two cats are the loves of my life and have helped me get out of bed in the mornings after Eric died.
