Welcome to my pity party!

Ready to come back to the real world after being a hermit for a few weeks.  So much has happened here  wasn't going to bore you, but you won't understand my comments otherwise.  So grab yourself a drink, some nibbles and welcome to my pity party.

Firstly my poor brother died at the beginning of February, after suffering with cancer for well over 10 years.  Bear told me to ring him over the Australia Day weekend.  I said no as its family time, unfortunately he went into palliative care in and out of consciousness. I was devastated that I didn't listen to Bear when he told me to ring. 
 Then my 2nd eldest sister attacked me on face book and sent me heaps of disgusting emails. Therefore with all this  I totally lost confidence in myself and withdrew.  Then I became quite sick and couldn't get out of bed as I was too dizzy and tired all the time. Eventually went to the doctor after Jan insisted and she thinks it was stress. My Bear sure knew how to take care of me during this time,  no actual spanking, but plenty of hard swats to stop my bad attitude. 


Then a quick visit to see our family. It  was our youngest daughters  30th birthday, so we went down this past weekend to surprise her.  It was exactly what I needed to bring me back to normal or as near as normal as can be.  Cuddles from my children and six out of seven grandchildren.  Little J wouldn't let me near him.  My son said I was looking really good, which was so sweet as he usually doesn't hand out compliments,  this boosted me up considerably.

Sorry PK, I didn't take your advice about my sister, been paying big time with that.  Bear and I have discussed the matter and he thinks it best for now to keep the enemy close and see what she's up to.  She has totally ignored me since that day.

Also thank you Jan for giving me the shove I needed to go see the doctor.  Otherwise I would have been struggling along still.

Anyway on a brighter note an update on Don.  He is progressing well and heading home Friday which is wonderful.  Always better to recoup in your own surroundings. I told him to check out the post on his last update, which he will probably do once settled down again.

Will have to get around to doing Ella's meme as been seeing everyone's and they all look great.

Make sure you give those near and dear a hug and tell them you love them as you never know what tomorrow will bring.  Life is too short for regrets!

Take care,
Hugs Lindy from down under.

  3. I am so sorry about your brother Lindy. Sad, but never second guess things.
    As to your sister, you can't change her, but you can put in place how you deal. I'm with Bear, just don't allow her to get to you!
    So glad you got time with the kids and grands!
    Btw, I had tons of stress related health stuff after my mom passed this year.

  5. Oh no! It sounds like you really have been through it lately Lindy.
    I'm so sorry for all that has made you unhappy. It's hard sometimes to do what is right for ourselves when we are thinking so hard about others- our bodies seem to have a way to make us sit up and take notice though, I think that's what yours was doing. Glad your family are all there for you xx

    1. Thanks Cat. My doctor thought it could be stress and gave me some tablets to help my dizziness. I'm pretty sure it was stress though as after seeing our family and doing some meditation feel heaps better.
      Glad to keep everyone updated on Don. will pass on your message.
      Hugs Lindy
