A long pause between posts this time. Last week was so full of family life, that I didn’t find the energy to write. I prefer to formulate each post in one sitting if possible, rather than adding snippets here and there. Writing helps me lighten the load I’m carrying, and sometimes I don’t know what direction my thoughts are going to flow in when I start writing, but I always feel better after releasing them. Some posts tumble out of my mind without much thought and others take a little longer to take shape. Usually it’s the emotive writing which spills out more easily, but it’s important to me that I chronicle our journey honestly, and that means the highs, lows and everything else in between.
