It has been a fair while since I last posted.
After a truly heartbreaking period of almost 8 weeks in hospital, my father died on 4th August.
Despite knowing that he would not survive, it was still the most devastating thing.
Losing a parent is monumental. I miss him so, so much.
To add extra stress to the month, our renovations began:
We have no kitchen or bathroom, so have moved out for the next 4 months or so. It's an understatement to say it has been a bloody nightmare logistically and emotionally.
The one very bright spot in all the stress and gloom was a trip to Indonesia to stay with our wonderful friends C&G.
They moved to Bali earlier this year and have the most beautiful villa, complete with staff.
We spent a very healing and lazy 9 days swimming, eating, drinking and generally indulging.

Now we're back and trying to adjust to our new life without my father, living in a rented house.
Thank you so much for all your lovely messages since my father's accident. It really warms my heart to have the support of so many people on the Internet.
I won't make any rash promises that the blog will be updated super often, but I am slowly trying to get my life in order and so hope to blog more often!
