I am still around, just so busy and tired. I have been looking at everyone's blogs in my spare moments, but have not had much inclination for posting.
My Mum has been visiting us for a week. It's been so nice to have her nearby for a little while. Our family has been through some suffering lately, with the loss of my wonderful father in January, and I have been very worried for my Mum. It goes without saying that she is very lonely without Dad, but she is moving on with her life, studying a Nursing Degree at university, and traveling the world. I am so proud of her, and I know that Dad is too.
As well as the frivolity of having Mum visit (and an indecent quantity of latte and cream filled cakes) I have gone down with a sinus infection. As I type this I am snuggled in a warm bed, with a beautiful husband bringing me cups of tea at regular intervals. He's such a sweetheart!
