Kristian and I bought a house in March, then on the rainiest day in April we got married in a pub with our nearest and dearest. At the beginning of May, just a few short weeks after the wedding, my beautiful darling Dad passed away at home, with Mum and I holding his hands to the last. It has been the richest, most indescribable time and I haven't been able to share it with you because I just didn't know how.
For a good long while I was tempted, amidst all this change, to just fade out, to leave this space quietly, slipping away without a proper goodbye. But then I have come to realise that goodbyes are tremendously important. Whole oceans of time and love can pass through the space of a few minutes. I know this now.
So goodbye dear friends and readers. I have loved this space but I have struggled with it too and I feel ultimately that my heart just isn't in it any more. Thank you for reading, for all your thoughtful comments and for sharing in the journey that has been Bakery Bookery.
All the best,
