Rebe's apple and cumin pie (yes she mis-read the cinnamon packet and yes it did taste quite odd!)
This summer has been filled with amazing, beautiful dazzling sunlight. Moments of pure joy, laughter, happiness and contentment.
There have also been rainstorms.
Dark clouds, pressure. Aching, painful down pours.
I want to record both of them here, this is a space for me to look back to remember. A space my children may come to in years to come and see what a place it was here.
And for that reason I need to record the saddest moment of this summer too. After 10 years, but not even a year of marriage Andy and I have decided to separate. That is all I will say about it here in this space, but I want to mark it, I want to be able to post here, in honesty without feeling that I am omitting an enormous fact of our lives.
I have been guided and supported through this pain with so much kindness and love and I truly know that 'the universe has my back'. To all those who have sent their love and support to me, in whatever form, I am deeply and eternally grateful.
