Goodbye For Now

I know a few people noticed that I closed my blog down since the start of the year. It wasn't personal to anyone or anything, I closed it completely because I needed to feel less exposed while I was feeling a bit vulnerable.

My mum passed away from cancer at 9.56 am on Sunday 23 March at the age of 52. There are no words I can use to express my devastation at this loss. I don't feel like I am coping very well with how traumatic her death was, especially as I nursed her through those last few weeks. I am not coping well with the idea that I will never see her or talk to her or hold her hand again. It is just too much to bear.

If you have the time, please read the post I wrote about my mum back in 2008 to get a picture of what an amazing woman she was and how much she means to me.
Thanks Mum!

I don't plan on re-opening this blog in the foreseeable future. It is a chapter in my life that I feel like closing right now, but I do think I would like a new outlet to blog one day soon. If you would be interested in reading if I decide to start a new blog please just email me at prettyif(at) It would be good if you could send me a link to your own blog or facebook page or just let me know who you are so I can get to know you before I send you the link to a new blog. Please understand if I don't respond to any emails right now though while I am feeling so emotionally and physically depleted. Just know that I appreciate the support and kindness I have received from you guys more than you can ever know.

With love.
