Good Date #1

I can’t think of Patrick without smiling, you know that? For a friend with benefits, he’s actually one of my favourite memories. Our first ‘date’ was at my Mom’s apartment. I was divorced, broke and had moved in with Mom to save money. She was away that night – going to a concert with herContinue reading “Good Date #1”

Just around the corner

I saw that Mom was online and clicked on ‘video call’, smiling as I waited for her phone camera to connect with mine.

I’ve cried EVERY SINGLE DAY since my Dad passed away and I can’t keep blogging about my grief. Although I feel it every day – a heavy rock on my heart, reminding me my Dad is GONE and I will NEVER see his lovely face again…I need to at least try to write about somethingContinue reading “These are a few of my favourite things”
