Hi folks, sorry I've been gone so long. Hopefully life will settle again and I can get into a new routine which allows time for my blog.
You may remember my husband and I moved in with my Mum just before Christmas. We came here to support her after she was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Sadly we lost Mum on 13th March. She passed here in her home, it was very quick. I was with her to the very end. We cremated her on March 22nd, during a snowstorm that threatened to bring the whole island to a halt. (Some villages are still snowed in but I believe all the power has been restored) I shall miss my Mum.
Losing Mum wasn't the only big change. I also quit my job. I should have done it 2-3 years ago, but circumstances back then were financially different. I wasn't enjoying the work anymore and after nursing my Mum I really didn't want to go back into a caring role just yet. So I'm on the lookout for something completely different. I think perhaps I'll look for a seasonal post, many places take on staff just for the summer. We hope/plan to be in NZ by Christmas.
