Sad day

Yesterday was great. Today not so. Although I am fond of the slow food movement, after a long day of doing something that you loathe then coming home to an empty home (the husband is away with work) the last thing I want to do is stand up and slave over a meal. So the sad little dinner for one is in the oven. Don't think bad of me.

Once home the phone rings. Its Leah my youngest sister. Phoning to tell me that some ******* stole my mums handbag from her place of work. Stole her new car and dumped it in a field. The worst of it is my sweet little mum lives so far away (Ireland) I can't even give her a hug. At least she has littlest sister there with her. Sending you love and huge hugs mummy. Hope they catch the idiots!
But its not all doom and gloom there is a bright sparkling light at the end of the tunnel. I did catch the lighting of the christmas tree fireworks display out of my bedroom window. I am such a sucker for giant sparkles in the sky. Hope you had a better thursday.

So sorry to hear about what happened to you mother :(
I feel the same way when something happened to my parents and I am so far away.

I'm so sorry to hear that, I would be too worried if I lived far away from my family and something like that happened. Hope your mom is ok.

I love firworks too. Every summer there's a firworks display at the nearby river, really close to my house, I can see them from the windows in my room. I switch off all the lights in my room and enjoy the great view :)

oh Jeska, so sorry to hear about what happened to your mum. I am glad she did not get hurt. I am sure she knows how much you wish you can be by her side-but have no doubt that she felt that hug you are talking about!

i hope today is a little better, thinking of you and sending sunshine!

Yuck. Our car just got broken into a week ago as well, thankfully they didn't take off with it, but I know that sinking feeling. Thank goodness she wasn't hurt. My Gram always says "It's just stuff." Hope she can shake it off. Hugs!
