#334 Pottering for Recipes

Tonight I watched the fifth Harry Potter movie with some of the womb fruits. My favourite character is Mrs Molly Weasley. I fell in love with the Weasley home, especially the kitchen, in the first movie. I imagined what it would be like to have a home like that 🙂 I also wondered what she…

#333 Keeping Busy

It’s sometimes a good thing to keep busy. Luckily, I usually have lots of things I can do. I tried a new recipe in the little vintage slow cooker. I mustn’t have been as switched on as usual because I forewent sautéing the onions in the dish before adding them into the pot. I don’t…

#332 Talk

There were so many phone calls today and all of them were heavy. They were all important in terms of caring for a person I love dearly. In between, there was much activity and bursts of happiness breaking through the dark clouds of worry, present in my mind. I’m so grateful for those shafts of…

#331 Depleted

Time to recharge. That’s all I have today. I hope that life is good for you, wherever you may be and that you’re happy. I read a feel good quote somewhere, that said “life doesn’t need to be perfect, for you to be happy” I’m working extra hard on seeing all the good. I wish…

#330 Good Samaritan

Yesterday a stranger appeared on my doorstep. He had come into contact with my son. He showed him kindness and I will always be thankful for that. I can rest tonight without worry. My son is in hospital and being treated. He is safe and for that, I am truly grateful. Hope remains. xo 🌻

#328 Tears

This is the hardest it’s ever been. Everything in my life up until today pales, when held up against it. I’m talking about the loss of my sister when I was in my early twenties, to the loss of my eldest son’s biological father, a few years after. Both to suicide. My sister and her…

#327 What’s next?

So the last couple of days have been heavy. There have been tears and some laughter in between. I’m not sure what is next or what the solution is. I’m unable to see how it’s going to resolve. The uncertainty is difficult. I hope for the best. For all of us. xo

#326 Compassion

Some things are just hard. I don’t know why the things that happen, happen. I know how to love and how to care. I’m a usually optimistic and happy kind of person and I like to do what I can to make others feel happy too. In life there are often questions that have no…

#325 Not tonight

I am unable to write tonight, apart from this, because we have had a family emergency. That’s sounds dramatic, and to be fair, it was and not in a good way. I don’t know whether to write about it or not. It’s difficult. It’s not only my stuff. xo
