Not that I have actually been anywhere these past weeks and months.
No, I have been right here busily getting on with all the things that we mums do, it’s just that somewhere along the way, I stopped writing about it all.
However, recent events have drawn me back to the keyboard to share my experiences, so here I am again. To give you a quick update on my life over the past year:
I turned 50
My eldest daughter failed her exams and dropped out of college
Lots and lots and lots of serious conversations about life choices
I found my first grey hair
My mother had a fall and broke her hip
Lots and lots and lots of hospital visits
Consumed lots and lots and lots of wine
I started a writing group at the WI
My eldest daughter dropped back in to college on a different course
Several more grey hairs appeared – finally reached for the dye
My mother went home but can’t cope on her own
Lots and lots and lots of tears
Both of my daughters had stomach problems
Lots and lots and lots more hospital visits
Consumed lots and lots and lots of cake
My writing group published a book in aid of charity
Lots and lots and lots of hard work
The family changed to a FODmap diet
Wine and cake had to stop!
So, as you can see, there is a lot to write about.
Join me as I try to keep all the balls in the air and strive for a saner life!
