An update on life

Bad news often comes in three's. 
Mine all came on one day. My boyfriend left me and my mum found out she had cancer.

That was pretty much the last time I blogged.

I was in a pretty bad place to start with. Skip forward three months and thanks to a number of people and someone very special, things aren't looking as bad. 

My initial heartbreak soon turned into the realisation that my relationship was over many years ago. We both should have realised and moved on. but habits are hard to break. It took eight years to break this one.

Mama bear is still very ill. The cancer is advancing and the first round of chemo hasn't working. We now have to concentrate on getting her stronger so she can try a different chemo. She is a tough bird, and will fight as long as she can. 

BUT, today is my birthday and I am 29 years old. In the past months I have realised that life is too short to regret what I haven't done and concentrate on the thing I want to do. 

Blogging is one of them. 

This is my outlet and my therapy. My little place on the internet that is all mine. I don't have to pass anything by anyone and I don't need anyone else approval. IT IS FOR ME!

I am beginning to feel more like Toni again.
