First of all - I would like to wish all of my fabulous blog followers a wonderful holiday and hope
that you had a fabulous Christmas :O)
Secondly - I want to thank all of you who have emailed me personally and for friends who
have supported me over the last few months.
As many of you know I spent most of this year going back and forwards to the UK to spend time with my parents as my Dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in the Spring. Obviously every time I went back I then spent the next month or so running round like a chicken with its head cut off trying to catch up with all the things I had missed while I was away - only to repeat the process a few months later. As you can imagine I managed to lose entire weeks especially when you factor in the fact that both boys were in marching band this year so I was even more involved that usual with the band.
My beloved dad passed away at the beginning of October and I have to confess that the bottom dropped out of my world. I have a Dad shaped hole in my life and I have struggled so much with my grief - there are some days when it seems almost impossible.
The run up to Christmas has, in particular, been very difficult for me and whilst I am blessed to know that Mum spent the day with my 2 sisters and their families - it did make me feel even further from my family than usual.
With that being said - I will try to post a whole load of photos to try and play catch up LOL.
Wishing you all the best for a wonderful 2014
Much love as always - Sara xxxxx
