I’ve been a bit quieter than normal around here. Nothing dramatic, just too many events and emotions getting in the way.
The weeks before Christmas are not my favourite. A show-reel of ‘the perfect Christmas’ plays on a loop in my head, with an accompanying voice-over insisting that this is the way it should be, and it is entirely up to me to make it so for my family, with goodness knows what consequences if I fail.
Completely daft, I know that – but I have to keep reminding myself, and I’m not always successful.
So forgive me if I’m even quieter for a while.
There are a couple of bloggers who I follow, who are living through the really difficult time of bereavement at the moment and to them I apologise for not leaving a comment with you, but send you my heartfelt thoughts and very best wishes.
