Gosh, I'm exhausted.

It's my birthday. Not my most restful ever. Happy Independence Day, America.

Diamond wedding party: great success. But tiring.
Son-in-law: off work with depression.
Daughter 2: off to Lisbon for holiday with unsuitable (well, in as far as he's an aspiring actor)
Parents: somewhat falling to bits, especially father.
Parents' relationship: pretty ropey.
Me: fat.

Light at end of tunnel: somewhat hard to distinguish.

Why am I writing a blog?

The picture shows me taking a picture of a clematis. I feel a bit like that shadow.


  1. oh dear... happy birthday! i think you and i and daughter 1 should all meet up in town for a celebratory coffee soon. and a cake, perhaps. because who are we kidding?

  2. Sending you lots of positive vibes out past Murrayfield.

    Don't feel down. You've got lots of postive and good things in your life.

    Keep the chin up. x

  3. Hope you had a Happy birthday:) Know what you mean about the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Take care:)

  4. Oh Isabelle, {{{HUGS}}} belatedly for your birthday! When you list the negative things like that, it is rather depressing, isn't it? I reckon most of us can relate to a time in our lives when nothing seems to be going our way. Give it a week, then do another list here - of the Positive things about your life.
