All is well here at Dollytub Cottage.
I have many more humorous tales to tell, but I am giving my chuckle muscle a little rest today.
My next blogpost will be my 100th posting, so I would like to take a moment to reflect on my life since first starting my blog in April 2009.
I had been following YOUR blogs for a few months, and thought I would like to give it a try myself.
At that time , I was in a very scary place emotionally. I had lost my life partner Liam to cancer five months earlier. I must admit that I felt as though I had slid into an alternative universe where my life no longer made any sense. I found that using my brain to create my tales very therapeutic, and gave me something else to think about.
However, distraction from our problems can only be a temporary solution, and after about a dozen posts, my mood took an even worse nose dive. The true reality of my situation at being without my soulmate hit me.
I gave up my blogging for several months, and needed oodles of support from friends and family whilst coming to terms with my changed circumstances. In particular, my BFF Carol, my sister Mandy, and my sons were all so instrumental in my recovery.
I began to feel a little better after Christmas, so I started my blogging again.
Since then, I continue to improve. You, my dear bloggeroos have also had your part to play in my return to normality.
I would like to thank you for all the comments and emails you have sent me. I really do appreciate them.
As my next post is my 100th one. I have written a very special story for you, so don't forget to pop back, will you?
