Apologies for my absence

It’s been a hellish few weeks of late, firstly losing our dog Willow on the 15th
December and then my Grandmother passing away three weeks and one day later.
In between that we also had to deal with Frankie (Willow’s brother) also being horrendously ill.
Add in the constant headaches I had been suffering since Willow passed away,
I hadn’t been in the mood for writing, nor if I am honest did I care.
I have simply been putting one foot in front of the other in an attempt just to get through this.

If you don’t follow me on Facebook or Instagram you’ll have been left in lurch
and wondering what on earth has been going on for me to not post for so long.
It's been a while since I have taken a break from blogging, years in fact but this was
needed to sort myself out. I am not there yet, there are still days filled with tears
and a physical pain in my heart. I just wanted to quickly update those of
you who are unaware of what has been going on, that I am ok
and that I just needed some time.

Hopefully from next week I will be publishing again on a regular basis.
I say hopefully as the universe keeps throwing things my way…………..

In last weeks blog post I explained that I had been looking after two poorly dogs.
Whilst Frankie had recovered from his illness, Willow took a turn for the worse during
the night (Thursday into Friday) and we had to make the decision to let her go with dignity.
This is probably one of the toughest blog posts I have had to write in a long time.

At the moment it is still too raw to go into much detail,
I hope that you can understand that.
She wasn't just a dog to us, she was very much a part of our little family.
Whilst Jay and I are obviously heart broken she leaves behind her mother
Mollie and her brother Frankie. We are all trying to come to terms with
a new normal in a world without Willow.

Rest in peace sweet girl, you were loved so completely by all of us.
