To all my friends and family, especially those who have been trying to get in touch or I have been wanting to get in touch with, I want to apologise for not consistently returning messages and just generally being 'off the grid'.
Since about November last year, it has been one thing after another, nothing 'catastrophic' but constant stressors or highly emotional events. On reflection I think I am a bit emotionally fatigued. Some things I have mentioned, like Mr Smokey's passing, having pneumonia over the summer holidays, Matt starting uni and fertility struggles, but some things are too personal or sensitive to share here. I would love to say things are getting better but there are still a few issues ongoing.
I am well but I ask for your understanding if I continue to be a bit withdrawn for the next little while.
Thank you XO
On a lighter note... the kittens! They have confirmed names now. The ginger girl is 'Scout' and the black & white boy is 'Jasper'. Scout is a bit of a princess and knows to meow if anyone is in the kitchen. Jasper is very energetic, almost manic, hopefully he will settle a bit as he gets older. Despite their differences they are best mates.
