Just a quick post to let you know I'm taking a short break from blogging.
I have had the flu twice this winter and I am slowly recovering from that. On top of chronic health issues which prolong recovery, I've been helping my Mum move out from what has been our family home for the past 54 years.
This task has taken up almost every day over the past two weeks - and is a mammoth task. Hopefully, we will have achieved completion mid-week, and then comes the adventure of helping her find a new home to live in.
To remain positive and build my health and strength I walk and attend yoga classes twice a week, and meditate daily.
The experience of helping Mum move has forced me to deal with the realisation that my mother is a hoarder, and I am fearful of the effect the compulsory acquisition and resulting move will have on her once the sale is finalised.
I guess only time will tell.
In the meantime, we do what needs to be done on a daily basis and the entire family is coping beautifully, and more importantly, Mum is still smiling.
