Today has been a kinda crazy day. This morning I handed in my English dissertation, after 6 months of
work. I rung my Dad to tell him, and he told me my Nan was really ill and it wasn't looking good. Within a few hours, I had finished and handed in the last essay of my American Studies degree so I could come home. By 7.30pm, I was back home. The next 48 hours are critical for my Nana. . She's been rapidly deteriorating over the last few months with dementia, and we lost her as a person months ago. Now we just want her to be at peace.
I'm sorry if things are quiet around here over the next few days. I don't know how long I'm home for. I just grabbed everything I could and came home. I could be home for a couple of days, it might be a couple of weeks. I just don't know.
Anyway, this is another outfit for the Republic Blog. Read more about it here.
Oh Charlotte, I'm so sorry. That's so hard to deal with. On the plus side, you look adorable (and quite tan? Is it the dark hair?) but I know that's kind of a weird sentiment during a hard time. Know that I'm thinking about you -- you can always send me a message on FB. :]ReplyDelete
I think it's the hair! And the sneaky skin coloured tights (can't live without them!).ReplyDelete
Thanks though, it's just a bit weird right now. I know you know what it's like. We knew after we lost my Grandad my Nana wouldn't be long after.
Sorry about your nan. Your outfit looks lovely though. Found you through WIWTReplyDelete
I'm so sorry, Charlotte. My grandmother suffered from dementia for years, and it was so hard losing little bits of who she was, but when she got very sick and it didn't look good, she really was peaceful and ready. I understand what you're going through. I'll be keeping you, your grandma, and the rest of your family in my thoughts and prayers! Hang in there. ♥ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear about your Nana. Sending good thoughts your way.ReplyDelete
For what it's worth, it's a really pretty dress on you!
Sorry to hear about your Nana, here if you need to chat xxxReplyDelete
I'm really sorry to hear about your nana. There's nothing good about these times except maybe that she will be at peace. That could be some comfort.ReplyDelete
I hope your dissertation goes well and I'm thinking of you.
OMG I was going to say that your outfit is super cute and I love the dress, than read about your nana. I'm so sorry sweetie :( it's so hard because in a way she's gone, but she's not and it's never easy letting go regardless. Super big hugs and if you ever need a chat xxxxxxReplyDelete
Sorry to you hear about your nana. I have a great grandma who is in a similar situation - it's sad to her going, but you know it's best for her rather than to suffer. Praying for you and your family!ReplyDelete
Off subject - but this outfit is super cute. I picked up a similar dress at H&M (wore it in my Easter post) and have been looking for some inspiration on other ways to style it. This monochromatic look is awesome!
I'm sorry about your grandma. :( Dementia is so difficult and I'm sorry to hear that it only has gotten worse. My prayers are going out to you all in this hard time!ReplyDelete
I really love this pink outfit; especially the denim jacket! I must check out Republic!
