Homemade bread with butter at my Great Aunt's house last Wednesday after we found out my Grandpa had passed away.

Sorry it has been so quiet around here over the past few weeks. Things have been tough and I've been spending time with family while we try to find our way through some tough times. I've learned that loss is one of the hardest things to bear, and this year has been full of it.

I expect I'll be back very soon with regular posts, but at the moment I'm having trouble remembering what day it is and all I can seem to concentrate on is family, tea and feeding myself. 

Thank you for all your kind words, messages, texts and cards while I was in Zurich. You've kept my head above water these past few weeks and for that I am truly grateful. 

With lots of love, I'll see you soon.
