Thank you for your nice comments..life certainly has been a blur yet I still function. It is a strange way to live.
I thought that I had lost my "umph" as I am continually tired even though I eat well, have returned to exercise and taking vitamin pills. However last night I felt human again.
I mentioned in a previous blog that I met an older man on a return flight home & we abandoned our luggage, hired a car & drove 6 1/2 hours home together yet we were total strangers. At the end of the journey we knew alot about each other. He is from Salford & it turns out that he designed my godmothers kitchen & his wife was her husbands badminton partner for 20 years!
Last night he came for dinner with his daughter & family! I have to admit that I was a little nervous as we have not seen each other since June however we had a great night.
The ice was easily broken when my 5 year old lifted their 6 year olds dress up & peeked in her knickers! Talk about wanting an Amtrak speed train to knock you down right there & then! Thank god they were OK about it!
We are seriously looking for a therapist for our boy!
His daughter & husband are also from Salford so it was great to hear some "home reminder" accents. We all hit it of well & will continue to stay in touch.
I have to say that even though my mum has gone this was meant to be. I feel as if I met Mr D for a reason & now we have new friends from the UK if we feel homesick.
I know it is a bit Enid Blytonish however I was raised on her "Famous Five" books!
Thanks mum, I really miss you.
