70th Birthday Memories for Dad

Today would have been my Dad's 70th Birthday. I didn't want to forget the day even if Dad is now longer around so my brother, AJ and I are having a celebratory tea tonight in memory of Dad. We have already visited the crematorian to lay flowers for both Dad and Mom and we are spending the evening together as a family.

I miss my Dad and Mom every day and I am sad that we can't celebrate for real. My Dad wouldn't have wanted the fuss but I would have bought a cake and either taken Dad out for a meal or cooked a lovely meal. I would have bought him his favourite malt whisky and possibly a nice glass as Dad loved glassware.

It has been nearly seven years since Dad passed away. The time has gone so quick. Today was a milestone I was dreading but I don't feel too bad surprisingly. Maybe because my Dad wouldn't want me to wallow in sadness. That today is about celebrating his life - not mouning his untimely passing.

So here is to my Dad Cliff. I love you and miss you and you are in my thoughts forever.

Your loving daughter Lesleyxx

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…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.

Love Lesley xxxxx
