4 Years Ago Today

It was 4 years ago today that I lost Mousie

Hi Guys, 
it's been a very long time since I posted here. I do check in to the other blogs from time to time, but haven't posted myself as it's been part of my healing process in moving on. It seems like a lifetime ago - and indeed it was. I do think back to those times as I don't need to explain the world was a more benign place than it is now! When things get to much I believe the mind tries to heal itself by reverting to happy memories. For me, those memories are of Mousie. Due to the lockdown, I avoid taking the bus home from work so I walk 4 miles. I have a lot of time to clear my head. I finally walked by Mousie's house, something I could not do for ages. The family lives quite local to me, I had just avoided walking by and took a different route. I thought it would upset me, but it felt good. It was like and envelope had been sealed. I know that is a strange description, but we all have memories and pockets of time that we associate with different things. I realise this is descending into psychobabble, so I will just say that it was the right thing to to.

I will post here more often, as I have always enjoyed it, and believe it will be relaxing for me in this crazy, upside down world. But for now, here are some pictures:

No post about Mousie would be complete without a bum-shot! This was her cattitude to most things, especially the dogs.

I am glad you were able to walk past Mousie's house. Saying it felt like an envelope was sealed is a good description. You will always love and miss her, but I am glad you can feel closure on not being able to go past her home.

We are glad to meet you and Mousie. We don't blog - we just read them - but we just lost our ornery boy Oscar to CKD and are missing him terribly, so we understand it never lets up.
