Life Sparkles

Dear diary…

…as usual it’s been a while since I have managed to update my blog.  So much seems to be happening and for a change, most of it is good, WHOOP!



Thankfully Dad continues to improve.  The Doctor was correct when he said it would be a slow process but I don’t care how slow it is as long as Dad is improving.  We are still battling away with the cardiac water cough, lack of appetite and regaining strength.  Sleep has much improved, Dad has started to eat proper food again and he looks much more like his usual self.  Mom has just been the most amazing little fairy, the love shines through and her nursing returned to her.  I have been so happily surprised at how she has been looking after Dad, it has been beautiful and emotional to watch.

Another plus point…oh I wish I had a fan fare here…we have managed a whole month of going to bed every single night.  We haven’t done that for almost four years…FOUR YEARS!! I still have bags under my eyes but at least they aren’t Black anymore.


We are experiencing the most fantastic Summer weather we have had in years here in the UK.  I love it.  Apart from ensuring that “The Kids” are kept cool I am loving this sunshine.  I’m not getting out in it much but just the fact is there is just wonderful.  Long may it continue.  This was a sunset from my bedroom window a couple of weeks ago.  Such beautiful colours.






I’m doing my bit in these lovely long, bright, Summer evenings to try and keep the garden as Mom and Dad used to.  You can see how scorched the earth is through the lack of rain.  I’ve bought myself a watering can.  I’ve done quite well with some small tubs of flowers and it’s actually quite therapeutic a little bit of gardening.

Last Friday one of my forever friends came over to see us and I had booked the carer to cover for me for a couple of hours so that we could escape to a local pub, sit outside and eat a late lunch/early dinner and enjoy a glass or two of Prosecco.  After not being out for such a long time  it felt like a holiday.  It is so true that carer’s need a break!!


I have news to update you on the music front which I will do as soon as I can.  There’s a lot of work involved now with the setting up, music aggregation, licences etc and finding time is difficult as I’m always on the go.  But find time I will!

A little snapchat filter to close off for today…gosh if only I could get my make up like this!!


With love and sparkles until the next update, thank you for checking in with me xxx

  1. It’s great that your Dad is improving, and definitely a huge huge fanfare for getting more sleep. The flowers look very pretty. Long may the good news continue xx
