Absence makes the heart grow fonder

So can we just ignore that it’s been two years since I last posted? I’ve no excuse, just life got in the way but I’m in a good place at the moment and feel like I owe to myself to get back into blogging for my own sanity if nothing else.

I’ve started another site on a different subject and have really enjoyed having something to focus on and I was going to let this one go but I’d already paid for the domain renewal so I figured, why not get back into it!? So here I am, back to trying to get a site that looks as good as I can get it and frustrated that it’s not as good as other people’s, but it’s a learning curve and I’ll get it looking better the more I try. I’ve always said everyday is a school day.

So what’s happened in the past two years? ¬†Work, holidays, making memories, I have a new niece which has been amazing and I lost my boy cat Freddie which was quite literally the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. I’ve come out the other side of depression now, hence me trying to focus on new pastimes like my blogs in order to keep my mind set on the positive things in life and to always look forward.

I’ve come to realise that life is full of colour and needs to be grasped with both hands and enjoyed as much as we can. It’s too short a time here to let people bring you down and make you miserable, they need to be cut free and only fill your mind with positivity in order to live your best life.

A bad week

So along with on going drama at work we had the added dramatics of yet another flood. The building we work in can’t really cope with heavy rain or should I say the roof can’t! This is now I think the 4th or 5th time we’ve flooded in two years, it’s bad that I’m losing count isn’t it!

This was the first time that I have been day off for it though so unfortunately had to leave my guys to deal with it, which they did admirably. Having a showroom that you take great pride in, being ruined, albeit temporarily, is very soul destroying. Thankfully we are back on track now, dried out and tidied up like nothing ever happened other than a lot of ceiling tiles missing having been turned to pulp.

Here are a couple of videos to show how bad it was, I don’t think really shows the severity but the sound gives you a good idea, that is the sound of it raining indoors.

Thankfully I work with an amazing group of people who now take this in their stride, not that we should have to, but sometimes life just throws these things in your path, and you either turn back or clear the way forward and after the past couple of weeks, I’ve learnt you have to keep moving forward because standing still is just as bad as going backwards. Sometimes you just have to let stuff go rather than dwell on things you wish were different.

Life is better than you realise and every second needs to be appreciated

Here’s to a better week x
