The Best and Worst of times.

I have just returned from my holiday to Menorca in Spain with some friends. I had a good time but it has meant blogging has had to take a step back.

It has not been the easiest of weeks at all and if I could fast forward to next year right now I probably would. There's so much I have wanted to blog about - like the Olympics finishing, the paralymics starting, my holiday to Spain etc.

I do not want to say too much on here because it's the internet and it's still a public forum. But for Simon and his family it has been, what I can only describe, as a shocking/upsetting/angry few weeks.    If you ask Simon who his best friend is he would say his Dad - hands down. They do so much together!!! Sadly, a week and half ago his Dad walked out on the family leaving a 30 year marriage, 2 children who idolise him and a family home behind. I will not say any more into why he left and what's going to happen as that isn't fair. Yet, it is safe to say it has been VERY hard!

I have only known the man 8 months and I feel incredibly hurt, so I cannot imagine what Simon is feeling after thinking he "knew" his Dad for 26 years. We're taking it day by day and the family are getting stronger. It's just going to be a slow process for all.

Otherwise not a lot is happening. Work is going really well still, Cohen is growing up (see picture below!) and it's now only 3 months until I go to Australia! Time is flying!!!!


Cohen at 4 months. His hair is spiky from the Oilatum for his cradle cap. Bless him!

I will be thinking of you and of Simon and his family during this time.

But Cohen is just too sweet! I think his spiky hair is adorable!!

Oh Rebecca - I am so sorry to hear about Simon's family problems. You know, sometimes things are so very hard to understand, but once the dust has settled, and acceptance has set in, perhaps the reasons will manifest themselves. This does not make it easier to accept or understand, but hang in there, support and love each other especially his Mum. I'm thinking about you and hoping all will end up the best way - it's not always what we want, but in the bigger picture, maybe good. The old cliche when one door closes another opens, is very true. I've been through a divorce and it's never easy, but in hindsight, was the best thing for my little girl and I at the time. Sending you big hugs from South Africa xxx You should try and plan a trip to visit us too some time :) BTW - little Cohen is precious!

He is so cute! I'm so sorry about the family troubles. Will be thinking of you all and hoping that peace is found in the "new normal."

My heart breaks for Simon and his family. Whatever the circumstances it is still hard and very sad to hear. My thoughts and prayers are with him especially.

I know you will get through this. Oh Cohen you melt my heart!
