I know I haven't popped in at all the last month and I should have. I really should have. But I couldn't. I mean the beginning of August was really quite busy and I knew that was going to happen but the last week and a half I HAVE HAD THE TIME TO COME AND POST. I even have a few bits and bobs I could have shown you that have been picked up here and there throughout the summer. BUT I DIDN'T. The truth is I am not dealing with my second daughter going away to university very well. I mean I am not breaking down and crying all the time. I know this is a sort of a crossroad with new choices and new paths.
And I know it is a time for a couple to reconnect, blah blah blah. But the truth of the matter is my husband and I have always connected. We have an amazing relationship. He is part of me. My soul mate, my confidant, my lover. I am incomplete without him. He has been an absolute sweetheart since I came back from dropping her off. He purposely booked up the following weekend to the point of near exhaustion to keep my mind and body busy. He calls me a few times a day just to say "hello". And I have two other daughters. The oldest is 21, still goes to uni and lives at home and the youngest is 12 and we are still active with her. But you don't replace one child with another, do you? I guess I'm just trying to say to please be a bit patient with me and I will try to get back into the swing of things as soon as possible.

I plan on doing a few painting and decorating jobs over the next couple of months so I will try and keep you posted with before and after pics.
