I feel fortunate. I had one of those days that makes you realise what you have and puts all the things you struggle with into perspective.
I have an amazingly supportive and loving family. My Dad is subbing my gym fees from mid this month so I can get back to the morning workouts because it made me happy and it’s been tough the last few months after having to quite because I couldn’t afford the gym and kickboxing. I chose KB.
I have a lovely pseudo family with my once baby brother in law Justin and my great friends parents Delaine and Charles. Between them I have a whole other family to enjoy and vent to and be supported by.
I have the three musketeers, Vincent Holland-Keen, Steve Savile and Alasdair Stuart and my ‘wife’ VC Linde. All of these people have offered unwavering support and a willingness to commiserate and celebrate with me through the ups and downs of the last couple of years.
I have a few incredible friends at day job, lovely neighbours and an amazing group of friends on line and in the real world through the bookiverse. I also have an excellent therapist. I have my kickboxing family, who keep my feet on the ground, except for when they sweep me….bastards. 😉
There are people who take a chance and let me try things, with varying levels of success and the awesome apocalypse girls and unbound team who have thrown their lot in with me for no good reason I can fathom.
Difficult things are so much harder on your own and the good things so much less fun, the people in my life are what makes it amazing.
And last but not least, my mum treated me to pretty shoes and that is important.
