Mean reds

People around me are having a terrible time, ranging from bad backs, divorce, murder, threatening neighbours, losing family homes to alcoholism - and that’s just my close friends. The GR has more or less been having a breakdown, my colitis is in major flare-up mode. We all got to be a year older, Erbie is now 2. We still haven’t sorted out the situation with Belle Mere. I attempted to book us all a holiday to get away from it all, which was a disaster, a journey of epic proportions for 2 days of sun and one on the beach. The GR blamed me the whole way through and now we are less well off because of it. We are not rekindling our relationship or skipping hand-in-hand through the woods as was the ideal. I miss the West End, I walked to Regent’s Park the other day and on reaching it’s outskirts my heart lifted and I felt I’d come home.

On a positive note the flat is lovely...

Stay sane - moving house is stressful, going on holiday is stressful. Happy belated birthday to Erbie

Sorry things are so rough at the moment. Hope things look up soon.

Glad the flat is lovely. It seems there is doom and gloom everywhere at the moment.

So sorry to read that. Hope things will look rosier very soon. x

Sounds hard - hope that everything perks up for you soon - moving area is more unsettling than you think sometimes...
