Thank you everyone who left such wonderful messages on my last post about my Grandad, they were much appreciated and I will admit to shedding a few tears at your kind comments. I don't usually write about such personal things on my Blog, I like to keep it up beat and away from all the horrible things that happen in life. But I will admit that recently I have been finding it increasingly hard to keep up beat about everything. I won't bore you with the details but life has been a little difficult lately with lots of negative things happening, and although I am eternally grateful that I live in such a beautiful cottage with a wonderful family and have very little to moan about in my life I have been finding it difficult to cope lately. I unfortunately suffer from depression and anxiety problems....Andy calls it 'My Black Dog' as it mirrors the melancholia my hero Sir Winston Churchill suffered. My Black Dog has definitely been very vocal of late and I feel like I just want to shut down. Everything is an effort when I feel this way and I have to make myself do things and keep going. I took two of the Pugs for a walk this morning, the first time I have been out properly for a few days and it was lovely to get out in the sunshine. I came back feeling drained but glad that I had been out. To cheer myself up I picked the first of the sweet peas and some roses from the garden.
My apologies everyone as I am sure I will be back to 'normal' soon. Thank you for all your lovely comments they are so appreciated and hello to all my lovely new followers. Normal service will resume shortly I hope!! Have a lovely weekend.
