Can the rest of 2012 ......

.... kindly naff orff!

I'm usually a really cheerful person with a very positive outlook on life, but sometimes, just sometimes I just want to curl up in a corner and hide under the duvet until the world buggers off.

In the past 3 months, I've lost my beloved Dad, I've been diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in my spine, one of my favourite chickens had to be put down, my daughter and her boyfriend were involved in a road traffic accident whereupon he lost control of his car in atrocious weather conditions, hit the kerb and flipped upside down into a field.  Thank my Goddess that they were both relatively unscathed apart from minor aches, pains and scratches - but it was certainly one of those telephone calls a Mum dreads.

And to put the topper on it all, this evening I had a knock on the door from a neighbour to tell me that I needed to go and look at our cat as 'she didn't look very well'.   This was a bit of an understatement. I think she died just as I was crossing the road to get to her.  Our beautiful little Minnie-cat, she of the permanently pursed lips and the air of disdain, the whippy tail and the predilection for catching butterflies, mice, voles, shrews and birds has gone.  I can't work out whether she was hit by a car as there was no outward sign of damage or she had some underlying condition.  She hadn't shown any sign of illness and was eating really well ( as usual).  Her little body was still warm as I cuddled her to me but it was clear that she'd left us.  Poor little soul.

Rest in Peace Minstrel Minnie Mouse.  


I'm sorry this post is a bit "woe is me" but hope that it goes some way to explain my lack of blogging recently.

I do have some lovely pictures and nicer stuff to share with you and shall attempt to get this done very soon.

Thanks for bearing with me. 

Positivity will return very shortly.

Wishes and kisses xxxx

    I know it's not much consolation, but there does seem to be a lot of 'it' going around, I will keep you and yours in my thoughts . . . hoping life in general turns around soon {H}

  6. I wondered where you had gone to, now I know! Wow, what a lot of awful things to happen in such a short space of time. Have you checked out The Food Hospital, they had someone on there with really bad arthritis and she is using particular foods to help her. Its on-line so you should be able to check it out.
