Hello my dear friends,
I hope you are all well. I hope everyone is well. I hope to post about the finished Music room remodel in 2 weeks. It has been a while since my last post, but I like to finish a room before I post about it. The floor is done, the peacock panels are done, now just assembly, caryatides and curtains and I will be good to go. I also have some great purchases from the Montreal show to share with you, so stay tuned. Here are some quick teasers for you.
The reason I am writing this post is because I have not been commenting on all your blogs the past week. As you all know I take commenting very seriously and I love it. Since we got back from holiday I have had to deal with my mother who was not well (it took over a month, but she is well again), the company I work for being bought over in January and I still do not know if I will be keeping my job (I'm not too worried one way or the other, just irritating not knowing) and my godfather who was also very ill and suffering. I am usually quite rational and optimistic person, however last week was a blow that really hurt. After 7 years of war with cancer my godfather’s body just could not fight anymore. I went to see him last Tuesday at the hospital and got there just minutes after the doctor told him he did not have a chance. He died on Wednesday night. I have been going between immense sadness at losing him and thinking about my godmother and my cousins, and absolute rage that any man should have to end their life in such pain and agony as I saw that Tuesday. I had planned to put pictures of all deceased family members in my prayer room of the manor so they would always be there and remembered, but it breaks my heart that godfather should be the first one there.
So to all of you whom I have not commented on, I want you to know that I have read your posts and that you are not forgotten or ignored, I am just feeling very wiped out right now. Luckily there was my nieces second birthday this past weekend, the arrival of spring in Montreal and many more happy events to come to cheer me up. Every day it gets better. As of next post, I will be back to my happy self and not mention any more sad events…life is for the living after all!Once again, I apologize for not commenting as much.
I send you all a big, big hug and wish you all the best.
