What a lonely Christmas this is going to be. I keep trying to put on a brave face and remain positive, I am determined to make the best out of it and really enjoy my day with Reuben... but it's still just going to be me and Reu. And today, a wave of grief hit.… Continue reading Festive feelings.
I remember the way I felt this time last year. The way the air felt, the white noise of something mechanical humming at night (I still can't figure out what it is), the way the lights across the city seemed crisper...
