The reasons for my silence

You may have noticed that I’ve not blogged for a few weeks. I just wanted to write a quick update to let you know that I’m ok.

There are two main reasons for my lack of recent posts. Firstly, I bought a new game for my Nintendo Switch which has been keeping me busy. I hope to share more about that at some point.

And secondly, a good friend died recently. As well as that this is also a difficult fortnight with anniversaries of three friends’ deaths, the birthday of one of them & the transplant anniversary of another friend who has since died.

I’m ok, but my friend dying made me overwhelmingly sad & then everything else coming at once has made me quite…umm, I can’t think of the word – not ‘thoughtful’ but thinking a lot/deeply about their lives, their deaths, their families, our friendships, my future…

I do hope to return to blogging soon but my head just isn’t in the right place at the moment.

Thanks for reading & take care everyone x

  1. Dear Molly,
    I am so sorry to hear of your sad news. This must have been very hard for you. It would be remiss of me to give advice!
    I do send you my love and also wishes for brighter days ahead.
    There are no words that can take away the pain of the loss you must be feeling, and given your own circumstances I have no doubt that this will all play quite deeply on your mind.

    Do you have someone who you are able to talk with? To share your feelings and your fears?

    I can see how the new game will provide some distraction and fun too. I don’t know if that helps Molly or just masks your feelings. You carry a big burden as it is, seeking help with lifting some of the weight that these losses will add to that is perhaps a strategy worth looking at.
    Molly you are such a strong and amazing woman, your friends would have been very privileged to have enjoyed your friendship and I am pretty sure you would have helped them in difficult times.
    Love makes our live richer. You share yours so easily!
    Sending you lots of it today.

  2. So good to hear from you Molly. Did see your FB post about your dear friend – my condolences.

    I think now, more then ever, we are all taking time to take stock of our lives and think of those that we have lost. I also know that for you this is more poignant, as you have had so many shared experiences with those that you have lost and are missing. It is OK and perfectly understandable to feel the way that you do, but I also know that you take away so many positives from the time that you spent with them.

    Good to hear that you are enjoying your new Nintendo Switch – got to admit, I am not familiar with it, but am also partial to the odd computer game from time to time.

    As always Molly, stay strong, stay safe and enjoy the people and things around you that make you happy.

    Ann x
