What about ye?

Meme from Baino

What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was living in a great black hole, hanging on by my fingernails following the death of my soul-mate Jack. Dealing with this grief was not easy, while also coming to terms with the loss of my mother and Elly’s leaving the nest for University, both just 20 months earlier. Somehow I found the strength to keep going and made a new life for myself and formed fresh new friendships. There is always light at the end of the dark tunnel if we persevere. Thankfully I found my way to daylight and learned to smell the roses and hear the birds singing once more.

Give Elly & George half!

Move house to a small apartment or bungalow with 2 bedrooms both en-suites, a small lounge, with a bigger kitchen/dining/living room where friends can sit and enjoy a drink while I prepare lunch or dinner. I must have easy access to my beloved internet!

Sponsor a child.

Build a Hospice

Travel a little.
