Times like these

Late Summer Lunch with good friends

As you already know it's been a tough few weeks with The Boy and I both loosing a Grandparent and attending the subsequent funerals.  It's times like these that I'm very grateful to have such amazing friends.

Both of our Grandparents were ill for some time and their passing was certainly expected and, if I'm honest, probably wished for to end their suffering.  In the last few months I've made a number of trips to Norfolk to see my Nan and support my Mum, whilst also trying to support The Boy through his loss.  And during this time it's been the constant stream of text messages and phone calls from friends which has helped me through.

I think I've also changed a little, as a person.  I wasn't happy in my job, so I changed it; I've started work on re-opening the Vintage Mardle Boutique on Etsy (more to come about this later in the month) and I've started doing things which I've wanted to try for a long time.......first of which was to swim in the Great British sea for the first time EVER (I'm 32!).   And I loved it! 

So a big thank you goes out to my amazing friends, I'm one very lucky girl.

Here's to having friends. xx

  1. You've never swum in the sea before, freak, especially considering you live on the coast. Mind you a friend who's lived in LA for 5? only went swimming there for the first time the other day.
