Life Is Hectic

As you can tell I haven't posted for a while. This has been due to life becoming very hectic. My father in law passed away on the 5th of November, after a brave struggle with cancer. James has been constantly helping in any way in can. On Monday the 15th of November, we had a memorial for Bob. It was such a lovely service. We ended the day by going on a boat out to sea to scatter his ashes. I told the kids now that when they look at the sea they can think of Grandpa being all around them.

The boat that we went on to scatter the ashes.

Waiting for the boat to arrive.

The beautiful sunset.

Matthew getting to drive the boat.

Samuel happy to go up stairs.

I have also been struggling with my health and having no energy and lack of motivation. I am about to go to a naturapath that I found through a weekend magazine.
I watched this really great webinar, 7 Steps to Freedom from Anxiety, Depression & ADHD Webinar,  that explains so much as to why I am the way I am. So tomorrow, Thursday 18th and Friday 19th November I have a first appointment. I am praying that this will be the beginning of getting my life back. Will let you know how it goes.
