Tuesday 19 April 2011: Normal-ish
For reasons which will become clear when I feel the time is right to back blip for yesterday, this was a very special moment today.
Sunshine, my kids, my dog and fresh air. It all healed my upside down world for half an hour. It took away loneliness, grief and worry for a while. So much so I felt enough serenity I could have curled up on a blazing hot metal slide and slept right there in the playground.
That says a lot about the strength of being with those you love and the outdoors.
Hopefully it won't be long before we can treat my other wonderful half to some of the same medicine.
