Sorry I haven’t been up to much recently. I’ve gotten very tied up in work, as well as with preparation for the Great North Run & before that the Way of the Roses cycle ride I’m doing with Three Knackered Girls. In fact I’m mostly blogging over there as that’s what most important at the moment.
I also wanted to let you all know that recently I have been struggling. As you may or may not know I struggled with Ante- & Postnatal Depression with Violet & sometimes it rears its ugly head, though I am mostly over it now.
I wanted to put this here because I feel as though I’ve shied away from the subject recently & as many of you will know its not something that magically disappears – it is with you forever – but I am lucky enough to feel strong enough now to put my feelings out there.
So, it’s been great to have a project to focus on, but because Three Knackered Girls are riding in memory of Evan who died at the age of just four you do stop every so often & just have to cry or take a breath.
Then you remember too that he is a total inspiration & not many people can do that with only four years under their belt.
On a happier note, now that the good feelings outweigh the bad you also get the pleasure of appreciating the things which make you happy.
None more so than the girls. Rose has been telling me repeatedly that I’m her superhero (which in my current fragile state makes me want to cry too!) & Violet has been adorable today, feeding her Monkey as they had a picnic.
I also have a couple of reviews still to do. I really am so very tardy but reviews of some delicious Ella’s Kitchen products & Faith in Nature Humphrey’s Corner bath products are to come.
