Jenny, thank you, I have decided to join you! Journal of Joy!!
For 7 long months I have told myself that I am too occupied with my responsibilities and illness in the house for the last 2 years. Maybe this will give me the kick start needed to get back to my blog.
What do we all do when we meet up with someone who will listen: we moan about the weather, the late bus or the missing post. Put all these negatives to bed; why…. Jenny said so!
To tell of my best moments from last week will give me huge pleasure, as I think everyone else is tired of my exciting news.
One: I have finally retired from a 16 year occupation working for charity, which was pretty much my life. I was reluctant to leave it all behind, feared retirement, but am now happy that I can be at home every day and share my husbands daily challenges.
Two: The Hospice gave me a terrific send off and I was overwhelmed by the amount of staff and volunteers who turned up to say goodbye! The words that were spoken about my time with them were beautiful, and humbling. I was spoilt!
Three: The very best one!! I am returning to Ireland, the land of my birth after all these years: nearly 50 in South Africa and now we will be leaving the UK in January. The removal truck was booked on Saturday!!! So excited as it will open up a new life for us both and maybe bring some positives into my darling husbands life too. And my writing and other hobbies may all see light of day again!
I have written this post for Warm Heart Wednesday.
