New Office

 Here's another view from my new office. Not too shabby!
I've been having a lot of fun making terrariums lately with succulents. My youngest wanted one for his room, so I got busy and found a little garden gnome to put in with it. I have made it in an old giant coffee jar. He lives with his dad now, so I was pleased he wanted me to make something for him.

This is a picture of Miss Flowergarden. This is all I see of her these days.  She hasn't spoken to me since August 2015.  She says I have ruined her life and she doesn't believe in separation. She certainly doesn't believe in re-partnering and finding happiness again in life.  I am at a loss with her. I miss her - I feel that I have lost my only daughter. She is very determined for a young person of 19. I fear she has many hard life lessons to learn and I wonder if I'll ever see her again. My eldest son has also gone missing this week. He has just gone AWOL - off the radar - not to be contacted. He has lost his job in the city because he didn't turn up to work. He has Asperger's Syndrome and although he is 21 and high functioning, he also lacks a lot of insight into society, people, emotions and communication. My heart is breaking for these 2 children.
 
                                                 





Oh thank goodness for my garden.

Oh dear Annie ~ I am sorry to hear about the losses of your children in your life.

Life isn't easy and we all have lessons to learn.

I'm glad you have beauty in your gardens and in your new travels with your job, your sweet little canaries and your creations.

Love, hugs & prayers for you and your family ~ FlowerLady

You do the best you can raising children. There is no manual only what you see and experience. I lost 4 years of my youngest sons life and my grand daughter after a stupid argument. It was reconciled (sort of) after my oldest committed suicide. Life is short, shorter than we know. Hugs and hope your children find their way and mature. I hope they are back in your life soon.

but the world is also.
So sorry you have to go through this.

Great to look at your wonderful photos. Glad you have someone wonderful in your life who loves you for you just like all your friends do. I just want to slap your daughter and hope I never run into her in the street or she will get a big shock. I pray in time she will see the error of her ways and thank you for the wonderful mum you have been through all these years. XX

Oh Annie, my heart is breaking for you. I'm so sorry your girl continuesto be so hard on you. She's a bright girl and not a baby any more and I hope that someday soon she'll understand that you have the right to a happy life. And oh, your big boy ... I hope he finds his way in life. I'm glad your youngest still appreciates you and your talents. And as for your office view - stunning! Look after yourself, my lovely friend. xx

Hello Annie, I'm slowly catching up with everyone and I was really sorry to read your sad post and, after reading your later one which shared the good news of contact with your Son was also very pleased for you in that respect.
A bit more life experience will surely help with your Daughter's outlook on life - I do hope so for all of you. Hugs xx

So heartbreaking for you Annie. I so hope you and your daughter can be close again. What a shame that she is missing out on you. Sending big hugs.
