After an 8 moth hiatus, I’m finally back baby! God iv missed doing this whole blogging thing!... So much has happened in these past 8 months that I feel like I’ve changed in to a new person ...So, with a new me, I felt like I needed a new blog, to start a fresh! …And so Sailor Stories was born!
(Life story coming up…if you don’t want to read, avert your eyes now!)
I know 8 months isn’t really a long time for someone to change but within those 8 months I've had to deal with some pretty heavy things... firstly, I broke up with the boyfriend, that meant that I had to move back home, which in itself is sole destroying! I’ve gone from having my own space, my own independence, to going right back to the beginning again!... It also didn’t help that within a month he had found himself someone new! My heart was literally in pieces! It was a really tough breakup for me!
A month or two later my Grandmother suffered a stroke suddenly and past away within a few weeks. It was horrible and so out of the blue. The day before it happened she was completely fine, the next day, the stroke happened. It really made me sit up and think… anything can happen; we need to enjoy life while we can people, you never know what’s around the corner waiting to happen. I was constantly checking my phone for any news about her, wondering when I would get “the call”. I was half way to work one morning when I got "the call".
The same time that my grandmother was in the hospital; my grandfather was in hospital too, he was suffering from organ failure. He started to get better and was going to be allowed home, but caught pneumonia, he never did make it home. A months after my grandmother passed away, my grandfather also died. To have two relatives in the hospital at the same time, pretty much waiting to die, is heartbreaking.
I can’t even put in to words the emotional strain this had on my entire family! I couldn’t concentrate, I was constantly wondering when I would get a phone call telling me one of them had gone and still can’t believe that I will never see these two amazing and beautiful people again … I had never experienced a death in the family before and this year I had 2 deaths in 2 months to deal with, needless to say that blogging was the least of my priorities! I had to be there and be strong for my family.
(Life story over! Lol)
Things in the past couple of months have taken a turn for the better though and I’m starting to feel like myself again! Me and the boyfriend are back together! (after some major grovelling on his part and lots of tears from me!) My family are closer than ever and I feel like this year has changed me for the better!
Well that’s my (essay like) update over! No more sad posts from now on!
Hope all you beauts out there are having a lovely week!
