Goodbye for now

Forgive me if I don't blog for a while.

We have had a tragedy in the village. A person here died very unexpectedly yesterday. And although I was not close to that person, this is such a tight-knit community we are all in various states of shock.

Such a needless waste of life. So very sad.

That's about it

Love Maddie x


  1. That's a shame, but it also says a lot about your community that it is so caring.

  2. Please take care of yourself and your loved ones throughout your village.

  3. Shocking, tragic and so very very sad. It is the time when small communities and families pull together and realise the fragility of life. Take care. xx

  4. So sad to read this Maddie. Such a lovely village that rallies at time of strife.
    Take care.

  5. Oh, dear, I'm so sorry Maddie. Take care x

  6. Oh Maddie - I'm so so sorry. I send you a big hug and a kiss and please come back to us soon x

  7. I'm very sorry to read about the tragic death in your village, Maddie. I hope you can all hold one another steady over the next while. Sudden loss is so hard - take care of yourself.
