Why I Stopped Blogging...

This is a hard post to write....

I stopped blogging because I had a broken heart....

On the day of my birthday the 4th of July 2009 I suffered a double bereavement. Then on 21st of that month the little man who lived in my house (my grandson) when to live with his mummy. This was unplanned and unexpected. He had lived with us since he was 5 weeks old and we though he would be with us until he was grown.

At that point I could not write beause I could not think, I could only trust and pray.

At this time my eldest child also went through major surgery.

I also found it impossible to carry on attending the church we had been so happy in because certain things there had changed and I knew it was no longer the place for us, but leaving was so hard because so many of my needs were being met there and it had been a big part of our lives.

A few months later I started a new gardening blog - the posts from that are now on this blog on there own page.

Hopefully I will now be blogging regularly again and have started this blog in order to pull everything together

Monica and Augustine

There was a change of plans yesterday and I did not get to have lunch alone with my son but with my grandson instead. Last night I made a desert to celebrate St Monica and St Augustine - I called it Monica's Tears.
I made some pancakes and trimmed them into tear shapes. Then topped then with orange flavoured chocolate and whipped cream.
I told the 2 boys (son, grandson and fosterson) about these saints before we eat them.
