Long time, no post.

It has been a while since I posted so I thought what better day to post again than the start of a new year. I’m hoping this year will be better than last year. I’m certainly going to do everything I can to make this a better year. Here comes the cliché part (I know you were all expecting it) – I am going to be more positive and get myself fit and healthy this year.  I’m also going to put all past disagreements and perceived slights aside. Life is too short right?  There is already too much hate in the world. Let us not contribute to it. So, if I have upset anyone whether I know it or not, I am sorry.  Reach out and we can sort things out. I’m going to do the same. Now that is out of the way I can return to my self-induced …

Struggling

It’s been a long tough week emotionally. It has been a real struggle and my energy levels have been really low. I’m trying to pick my head up though and to all that have asked how I am and supported me this week (you know who you are) I appreciate it 🙂 However, Cleo had a bad night last night and is clearly feeling it today. Hopefully some rest will make her feel better in herself. She is currently on steroids which appear to be helping her at least be comfortable.  Each day she is here is a another day we are grateful. In other news, I’ve got a few projects and jobs to work on this afternoon and just thinking about it gives me some motivation.  It is time to change my ideas into reality. You never know unless you try right? Also, going to Pen y fan last …
