Well, hello there! Long time, no see, how’s everyone doing? As always, please accept my apologies for my absence, we’ve been visiting the caravan and packing up and organising things ready for our holiday, so that’s been taking up 99.9% of my days. Then my evenings are spent between napping, planning out this story, and watching YouTube. Life’s not been in my favour though, I’ve been fighting off this flu for the last two weeks and it’s only just starting to go.

So, today marked eight weeks (two damn months!!) since we lost Spud, and I’m just flabbergasted at how fast that time has gone by. Of course, we’ve had Teddy home to occupy us, but the day she was killed, I thought my world had ended. Time does heal, no matter how much you doubt that in times of hurting. We speak of her almost every day, and she’s with us wherever we go.

Speaking of Teddy, oh my goodness, where do I begin? He’s 4 months old this coming Monday, and there isn’t a day that goes by when he brings us immense joy and laughter. Not only is he growing in size; but he’s just so cocky, a little too confident, and undeniably funny. Of course, he has his moments where he’s a wild child, but the good, very heavily, outweighs the bad.


I’m still with that independent counselling service every Tuesday morning, we’re three sessions in so far and we’re barely scratching the surface. Apparently, on the sixth session, you’re reassessed and a decision is made if you’ll benefit from more therapy, or stopping it all together. My counsellor agrees with the fact that we’ve barely started, despite me using the full hour to my advantage and getting a lot out into the world, so she thinks that it’s going to take quite a well yet before we’ve finished.

Which, surprisingly, I don’t mind. I’ve found my trust within her now and everytime I walk into that building, I know what to expect, so it’s not as much of a shock to me as my first session was.

Baby steps!

In the world of writing, have I done much? The answer to that may surprise you, as yes, I have! I’ve been planning this particular thing for weeks, and I’m working on it slowly. I’ve also been working on a one shot as well, and I’m sloooowly gaining my mojo back, and it feels friggin great.

What’s even better is that on the 8th of June, we go to Durham with our caravan, so alongside sightseeing during the daytime, I have the evenings to write/plan/be productive. I was thinking of taking my Supernatural DVDs, but I’d never forgive myself if anything happened to them, so I’ll have to start Season 11 when we get back (or before we go, but I reaaaaally wanna pay attention to 11 and 12, you know?).

So, on the down low, I’ve been making layouts. I’ve made one for my new Supernatural story (c’mon now, what else were you expecting?) and I’m so happy with it, it’s dark but I did what felt right for the tone of the story and I’m so happy with it! You’ll see it once I provide a story page link, if anyone’s interested in reading.

On top of everything else, what else is there to update on? My Uncle start radiotherapy today for his cancer, so keep sending good vibes along for good health!

I guess that’s all I’ve got to update you guys on this week. I’ll probably post another update before we leave for Durham, so I’ll see you then. Love you.
