I won’t bore you too much with how I’ve been for the last few months – suffice to say that it’s been the hardest time of my life.
I’ve had a lot of very dark days, and imagine there’ll be a lot more ahead.
I think of Alf from the moment I wake up, right up to when I fall asleep, and miss him during every one of those moments.
I miss the things we used to do, and cry over those things we will never do.
On the positive side, I’ve made new friends, seen a lot more of old friends than I used to do, and started on a lot of projects that I was too lazy/busy to tackle before.
I’ve also started an art class, and will shortly be starting a concrete sculpture course – hopefully, my Plus-Size Diva will finally get her day in the sun, and I might even manage to make some head planters.
I decided it was better to keep busy doing things I enjoy, than to allow myself to drown in my pain – though it’s very tempting to go down that path sometimes.
Anyway, thanks for your support, and patience – I just need to finish getting the garden into shape after having ignored it for the last four months, and My Mauritian Garden will be up and running again!
Till next week.
