After posting at the weekend and mentioning on Instagram that I’d been struggling with things recently I was overwhelmed by how lovely people have been.
Like really bloody lovely.
Lovely ladies I’ve met through this little old blog, through mail swaps and Instagram wishing me well and checking in has been so genuinely heart warming.
A very kind friend sent me a surprise book in the post to cheer me up and take my mind off it all. I’ve only dipped into it so far but Moths That Drink Elephants Tears and Other Zoological Curiosities by Matt Walker is the perfect thing for dipping into when a mental distraction is needed. The added bonus being that the random animal facts within it are brilliant.
Did you know ‘Adelie penguin chicks take part in group-hugs of up to 18 individuals in a bid to stop them from freezing to death. Smaller chicks appreciate a cuddle the most as the lose heat much faster than their larger brethren.’ I can’t deal with things this cute.
So, thank you very much you bunch of stars. I really appreciated the kind sentiments. You’re all fab.
