I had been having a bit of a tough time for a while so decided it was time to take some time out and get away some where. I spent two days trawling the internet looking for something cheap and suitable to go. The thing is I have two cats and I find it hard to leave them so I try to find somewhere that accepts pets. I found somewhere last year so knew it would be possible so I started looking. The problem was, it was the tail end of the kids summer holidays so everywhere was either booked or expensive. I really did need a break though as my head was starting to spin and I needed to switch off for a while. I persevered and eventually I found a nice place in Kent and guess what… after some persuasion I could take the cats. During the evening I got everything packed and early the next morning we were on the way.
I took the one I care for with us, although he only managed to stay there for 3 days and then he was off back to London. A shame really but that’s how he is and sometimes he can’t handle things or change, so I was on my own, hey ho. Still I made friends with the lady that owned the farm and had a really nice time in the end. I got to see lots and really chilled out and the good thing was, my cats were there with me all the time. My 2 cats have been so good for me with my depression and so on and I have probably said before that they have brought so much into my life.
I had such a nice time there I ended up staying a couple of extra days so I did have quite a nice long break, 10 days in total. I did feel a bit rough while I was down there for a couple of days which was a shame. I also felt quite rough upon my return and today is the first day that I feel I might be over it. I am not sure even what it was, just some horrible bug I have managed to pick up from someone.
Upon my return I had some very sad news… I had been following a young ladies blog for most of the year and sadly she passed away. Rosie Kilburn was such an inspiration and throughout her fight with cancer she was writing a blog and raising money for charity. Rosie’s blog “The Knock On Effect” had over 150,000 hits since she started writing and since her passing it’s almost doubled… http://theknockoneffect.wordpress.com/ Rosie you are no longer suffering and you are now with the angels of the skies, my thoughts are with your family, friends and loved ones… xx
