Firstly, thank you for all your kind comments on my previous post.
Right now I'm feeling OK and able to write here... so I'm making hay while the sun shines.
I've thought long and hard about posting at this time. You see, I occasionally write about more personal subjects but on the whole I keep certain things private and instead discuss them with those closest to me. Essentially, I like Mitenska to be a positive place where I celebrate the little things in life which make me happy.
My mum is unwell. She's staying in a hospice and the initially positive prognosis has sadly changed. It's hard. We're taking things day by day, hour by hour if need be.
I do love writing and I know my mum has always enjoyed reading my blog and encouraged me to keep it up. I fully intend to do just that. Things are going to be rough and there will be times when I don't feel like coming here. So during the coming days, weeks, months I'll see how I feel and post according to whether I feel I can. What I won't be doing is writing about this whole sad process. That's not what I want for my blog and my readers and it's not what I want for my family.
So, expect me to just pop in and out, and to see a lot of photo-heavy* posts for a while. Please keep visiting - I really do appreciate the little community I'm so pleased to be a part of.
*If you've been with me for a while you'll notice that this is possibly the first time I've ever used a landscape image as opposed to portrait. That's progress for you!
