The First of my Angel’s Anniversaries Start Today

So it begins. The tenth anniversaries of when I lost my babies have now begun with today. 10 years ago today, I went into labour at work, sat at my desk.

Nearly 10 Years Since My Daughters Died – And I am Struggling

I’ve been struggling to understand why I’ve felt more down than usual (even for me) over the past few days. I've eaten too much, struggled to concentrate and been barely able to sleep.

I've just about gotten into watching 'Outlander' on Amazon Prime. It don't mind it, it's good escapism and the male lead is lush, so all good (if you forgive my tasteless objectification of a male).
