A lot has gone on since my last blog post, so I figured it would be good to do a vague review of my year as a little catch up. Mind you, with the way 2016 has gone so far the world may end before anyone reads this (we have about 5 hours left), but never mind. To the review!
I feel a bit like I exist in a strange little bubble just now. I was doing well, plodding along nicely last year, doing exciting things and feeling happy.There was a dark blot looming on the calendar at the end of the year which covered a few months, but it was ok. The event horizon was far away in the future.
For the first year of bereavement, I’ve found that you expect certain things.
Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who got in touch with me after I posted my blog ‘One For Sorrow’ last week. It had an incredible response, and one which I wasn’t expecting. The messages I’ve received about it from both friends and strangers have been very touching and really meant a lot.
I’ve been wanting to write a sort of ‘review of the year’ for 2013, but it’s proven difficult. I want to write about the good things that have happened, but to do this I need to write about the bad.
