Apologies for my absence

I am still here, albeit positioned somewhere between the rock I crawled under a few months ago and the girl you now see frenetically waving above the parapet, trying to keep afloat. Ok. So I could give a hundred reasons why I haven't blogged for such a long time, but for those who follow me (is there anyone still out there? lol) you will know I'm a positive kind of person and I'm not going to blog and moan and depress you all with my woes of the last few months. Suffice to say I survived my youngest and my birthdays, the divorce process, various flare-ups, Christmas, New Year, my wedding anniversary, our old Labrador being put to sleep, my eldest being finished at work, three weeks out with some variation of the flu, and Valentine's day...
Monday 20th February is Decree Nisi day. Six weeks and one day thereafter, I will be a divorced woman. I am back! Almost. In the meantime, if there is anyone still out there who gives a jot, or anyone who's found this blog because you're a wannabe writer, check out my band of merry, rookie RNA writers - The Romaniacs
As well as my friends and wonderful family, these girls have got me through the last few months. So if you are in need of some inspiration or support, check them out. I WILL be back... Until another day, (hopefully not too far away.) xx

hi darling girl, good to see you being so cheerful. I am now in similar boat to you Mr-wise (the curse of PC claims another victim ....) but luckily there is no other person, no animosity - in fact E is sitting here on sofa helping T with maths so I'm hoping that it will all be very very easy. Life, eh, funny old thing. Still, better that than dead. It's being so cheerful gets me through. Great to hear from you and glad that you, too, are waving the positive stick! XX

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

Great to see you back again and your usual positive self despite the rigours of the past few months. x

The important thing, Debbie, is not your absence, but your presence. As in, you're back, despite your numerous "misadventures."

Greetings from the Bear on the west side of the pond! Hope to see you more often.

Anne Gallagher said...

I'm sorry to hear you've had quite a go of it. But I'm glad you're coming out of the darkness. And whenever you get back to blogging, we'll be here.

It's good to see you. And there is life after divorce, so hang on in there.

Much love.

I want to cry (in a good way) and say 'Thank you so much' to my lovely cyber friends.

Debbie, it's grand to see this post from you, as it tells me that you are still that strong, generous lady I first met on this wavelength.

Hi Debbie and how good to see you here again. Spring is round the corner! Have been thinking of you often so it is good to know you are still here, afloat! Hope to see you soon.

Jennifer said...

I'm still here. I am sorry that you have been through so much but keep up that positive outlook and you will get through this and use it in your writing. Take Care.

Posie said...

Lovely to catch up with you, I too have not been around for a while. Have been thinking of you, and if I had known you were going to Loch Lomond I would have insisted you travel further up the road and got the ferry over here for a few days!! Hope all is well. x

Sarah Pearson said...

Great to see you back, after such a busy (and, I suspect, somewhat trying) time!

Yay Debbie! We missed you! Welcome back and please keep blogging!
