I'm Back

Hi Lovelies

I'm home. Well actually I got home last Sunday and as you may have noticed the blog has been quiet since I got back. Two days after we arrived in Spain, I received the heart breaking news that my cousin passed away.

It wasn't something me or any of my family would have ever expected and it was a major shock. On hearing the news, we thought about coming home but the cost of the flights home and on speaking to family, we decided to stay. It was a horrible decision to have to make but I know my cousin would be ok with it. 

I enjoyed the holiday as much as I could but the news was always hanging around in the background. I grew up with my cousin seeing him at least twice a week. In recent years we had grown apart but when we did see each other, we had great fun chatting about books, films, tv and what wines we thought were worth rating. We shared an affinity for red wine.

I'm saddened by his passing and can't quite believe it. My cousin just turned 30 back in February. Since getting home, I have spent time with family and spent time coming to terms with the news. 

I will be back blogging properly next week but just wanted to touch base and let you know where I am at.
