Gee where do I start.... I didn't mean for it to be so long in between posts. My goal this year was to be more focussed and place importance on things that matter to me like this blog. Life though can throw some curve balls and attention needs to be focussed elsewhere.
I have mentioned how my Nan was ill when we last spoke. She went to hospital and got tests done and all was ok, she was on the mend which was great. Then a couple of months down the track she woke with a terrible pain in her tummy, something wasn't quite right. She was rushed to the hospital and after some tests they discovered that her bowel was full, something that can happen, I didn't think it was anything to be concerned about at the time. But as you age and with other health complications it mean that it was very serious. Sadly my Nan did not make it and she passed away in hospital just days later from a blood infection and her body becoming toxic. It was such a shock to us all. She had been unwell but was in great spirits and we thought that we would have her in our lives for more years to come....My Nan, Ivy Bertha, passed away at age 88. Following her passing in March life has been a bit challenging. There is certainly the loss to adjust to, the finalising of her affairs and the family dynamics that have also changed as a result. I just haven't felt up to doing much of anything really. I have done things of course but it has been an effort. In time things will improve and this week has been a good one, I'm just taking each day as it comes and feel blessed to have family and friends to talk to and lean on when I need them.
I post on instagram often but if you aren't there I have put lots of photos up here to catch you up on what I have been up to this last couple of months. I hope to be back here more regularly now as things are slowly returning to a new normal, sharing a bit of crafting and gardening which I am planning on doing on Monday as we have a long weekend here. I hope you are all doing well those of you who still like to visit blogs.
