Happy New Year

98102-And-Then-Im-Alone-AgainAs I start to write this post only four minutes remain in this year.

The year 2015 started on a high for me. My partner and I were beginning to build a new life together. We had moved into our beautiful new house when we returned from Europe in the middle of 2014 and all seemed right in our world.

The next few months trundled along as they do. There were short breaks away to the beach house or to visit friends in other parts of the country and visits from friends to stay with us. We were both thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Oh there was a small hiccup when the architect had to have a hip replacement but as he was so healthy he took this in stride and in very short time was walking without the aid of sticks or crutches and life went on its pleasant way.

Imagine the surprise (and devastation) when in June he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and within two months he was dead. What a shock this was not only to me but to all who knew him.

So once again in this long life I was left alone to pick up the pieces. Well as can be seen from the fact that I am stating to blog again, I am picking up the pieces and looking forward to a happy and interesting New Year.

To all my friends in the blogosphere I apologise that I haven’t been around much this year but the only Resolution I shall make is to write each day again.

And to you all, I wish you a safe, healthy and happy New Year.
