Grandad Reg

Yesterday AJ's Grandad Reg passed away. He had been ill for quite a while but it still came as a shock to the family.

Reg, I think was 85 and had lived a good but hard working life. He was a Commando in WW2 and saw things that no one should ever have to witness, and throughout his life he was a Master Butcher.

He married Jean and they had three children; Susan, Karen and my father in law Nigel. In the late 1970's they moved to Blackpool and his children and grandchildren all have the fondest of memories visiting them. A trip to Cleevely's still brings a smile and laughter to AJ and the rest of the family.
About 6 or 7 years ago, Reg and Jean returned back to the West Midlands in happy retirement until Jean's untimely passing in 2008. They had been married over 60 years. Now they are reunited.

Reg was a big, strong, handsome man in his time. (My FIL and husband both look like Reg- unfortunately I haven't a photo at hand to post). He was also proud and a real fighter- right up to the end.

I only knew Reg for a short time but I am previledged to have met him.
He will be missed by the family and will remain in our hearts for ever. Love you Grandad Reg xx

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

Happy wedding anniversary

Seven years today I wore this beautiful dress to marry my best friend.  Seven years today I vowed to love and cherish my best friend forever..  We have had many ups and downs over the past seven years but I wouldn't change a thing. 

AJ I love you.  You are my world xx
