The Long and Winding Road. And more than a few bumps!

I totally love people's honesty when they write on blogs. Some of my favourites are not picture perfect,sweet, or full of perfectly posed pictures. I read about the bumps and lumps in their lives.I can almost be in their house. I can empathise as they are dealing with teenagers. I remember being full of self doubt, I have had hardships and battles. But I rarely talk of them........

Sometimes I ask myself " what actually is my Blog here at Chalky's World about?"

Does it actually mean anything significant?

Is it enriching anyone's life?

Is it enriching mine?

I think I have got to a very big crossroads with Blooging. I know many others have too. It's so easy to blog when life spins along happily downhill. But, my goodness it's hard when you find yourself on a steep uphill climb. I never swear... Well not publically,or in print but life has been pretty SH1t around here just lately .

Not sweet Wiilam of course . Our 2 legged alarm clock and all day entertainer was amazing. But enjoying him so much makes " goodbyes " even harder. It will be a long time until we see him again and my goodness he is growing so fast!



I should have sat down with him for this photo he looks almost as big as me!

We miss him,but also his mummy and daddy.


But they are so happy and that is just as it should be.

I see my Grandson and my son rolled into one wonderful bundle here.

So, there we are.

Just a little gap in the family line up for our lovely youngest daughter and her fiancé as they are still sailing the seven seas.



But, someone once said to me "that you are only as happy as your unhappiest child " and my goodness that is so true.Our eldest daughter has a bumpy road to navigate just now!

She is so lovely with a smile that lights up a room.

It's not my story to tell but I just wish she was freewheeling .That would make me so happy.... But let's wait awhile and this time will pass. And until it does I will swear repeatedly under my breath and hope the sun is just behind a cloud!
