It's been a very sad time
It was this time last year when life became difficult and I stopped blogging because I felt unable to keep up a positive public face when I felt so low. I know now that was a huge mistake and one I'm not going to make again. I'm not going to pretend to be alright when I'm not but I am going to continue blogging even if for a while there will be little of substance written. So I need to tell you...
On Monday 4th August our beloved and beautiful seventeen-year-old granddaughter took her own life. The expert care and counselling, the love and protection that surrounded her - none of it was enough to keep her safe from the darkness of the depression that overcame her.
It is a devastating and heartbreaking loss for our family. It has been the worst ten days of my life.
