Its been a while I know. Im cross with myself that I let this slip as writing my thoughts and stories down does help with the healing. There has been some tough times the last few months where Ive just wanted to hide away. Where your glass is constantly half empty and despite what your heart tells you, you feel grateful for nothing. You cry at everything, you feel tired, lost never very happy.

As Ive got older Ive come to accept and understand that these days will come but, as quickly as they do they will go again. Like storm clouds giving way to the sunshine.

Its Spring here in Luxembourg and truly a beautiful place to live. There is at last colour everywhere which is a welcome return after months of grey.

The area I live is especially beautiful with pink cherry blossom lining the roads and gardens proudly displaying their Spring harvest.

The vineyards after months of just mud and sticks are beginning to grow again. The workers in the fields who I admire so much for their tiresome work all through winter watch their crops daily trimming and snipping to encourage growth.

My garden looks lovely unlike the mud bath it was through most of the winter. Its displays the blooms with pride and it a testament to the cold November Saturday I spent on my knees planting bulbs.

Everything and everyone seems lighter, more energetic.

I have broken my foot which was painful but now is just really annoying. There are so many things I want to do but can’t as Im limping and walking fast isn’t an option.

I want to jet wash everything, spring clean, de clutter get everything prepared for the summer.

But instead I have to wait to heal and use my time differently.

I have lots of ideas Id like to share with you.

Thank you for reading

    I’m sorry things have been tough for you. I wondered when you’d write again. This past month or so hasn’t been great for me. I’ve learnt to listen to my body and heart and rest. Nothing is permanent, we can ride the waves.
