People are strange when you’re a stranger

I’ve been MIA for the duration of the pandemic and for that I am truly sorry. A lot has happened since 2020 in my life and not all of it was for the best. Hence the reason why I’ve been taking time for myself and getting my life sorted before posting on here again. No doubt some of those who were following me will have left, some because they were missing my posts and others because they thought I’d gone for good.

I would like to say that, since I was last here, I have become single, applied for a divorce and the decree absolute should be granted soon. I am now free from the Narcissist I spent 21 years of my life with and I am gradually beginning to get back into the swing of things. I am not going to say everything has been a bed of roses because, last year, I caught Covid twice. The first time was while waiting for my dad’s funeral and to see if I could go, because I contracted covid I was unable to go. The second time was in January of this year and my breathing is still laboured and painful so, yes, long covid is a thing and it is worse than the disease.

I wish I could tell you that I was heartbroken when my dad died, but I hadn’t seen him since 2019, going up to Scotland to pay him a visit proved an impossibility because of the lock down restrictions in place in late summer 2020. By that time he was in a care home and was waiting to die. When the end came last year he was more than ready to go so it was a relief for him when his end came. I’m not going to lie and say I miss him every day because I don’t. I wish I’d been able to see him before the end but maybe that was better not to. I still miss my mom and think about her every day but dad, nah not so much.

Anyway, now that I’m back here again it is with heavy heart that I have to bid you all a good night because it’s getting late here now and I’m growing tired so I’ll bid you a fond good night and leave you with a quote from Mr Mojo Risin’: “Whoever controls the media, controls the narrative as well as those weak minded people who never fact check anything!”
