Fairy Tales

She has been absent for a little while, 
Living her fairy tale. 
But fairy tales have bad bits too, don’t they? 
With fiery dragons, witches who poison and bullies that scare. 
Loss, pain and dread. 

Their ‘Once upon a time’ has been challenging so far. 
2015 has bullied them. 
Work issues, broken cars, broken people, 
But, they backstep, sidestep, 
Running along, trying to get back on track. 

She thought about retiring her little blog, 
But likes the clickety clack of words that her fingers tap, 
And the memories on her page. 

Her fairy tale progresses, 
She has plans. 
She will weather the downs, and relish the ups … 
Her life is hers and she will live it, 
As best she can. 
Page by page. 

Always hoping, 
For their … happily ever after.

I am so pleased that you have decided to stay in the blogosphere Marina, it just would not be the same without you.
May you weather the difficult storms, and find sunshine on the other side.

I am sorry that life is difficult right now this year had been a terrible start for me but I realised that after two years of not blogging properly that I have missed the community spirit and being able to escape here from the harshness of the real world sometimes so to speak. So I have decided to start blogging again. I think its good therapy to be able to write your thoughts and feelings down and I hope that by writing this post it has given you some inner peace. Best wishes and keep smiling, dee x

It really is a wheel Marina, it never stops, remembering that is what's always pulled me through some terrible times, if you are at the bottom of it, hold on, because it will start to turn and you can only go up, chin up lovely. x

Hello Marina, I’m so sorry to read about the ups and downs in your life. I hope February and the following months are full of ups. I would be very sad if you retired your blog (I must admit I’ve thought about it myself), I would miss you. Love & hugs Barbara x
