- trigger warning – suicide.
It’s Friday again and it is a glorious day here in the Great South-East. The sky is so blue and even though I live smack-dab in the middle of busy suburbia all I can hear are the birds in the trees and one of our cats chattering angrily at me because he’s not allowed to eat them. I’m a cruel and uncaring human apparently LOL.
I am very excited to announce that I’ve been asked to be a brand ambassador for Therm-o-Web again this year. High fives, woohoo! etc. I genuinely use a metric ton of their products in my work every year and I’m very happy to share the love. This means giveaways, free projects, and lots of fun. Stay tuned!
On a sad note, and hence the trigger warning, one of my favourite musicians died today in a suspected suicide. I’m guessing most of you have never heard of Chester Bennington or the band Linkin Park, but his/their music has been a huge part of my life in recent years. As my youngest daughter would say “I’m shook-eth”. Yep Kel, I am shook-eth to the core.
I can remember when Elvis died. 1977 wasn’t it? I was still a kid, still in primary school, with crooked teeth and knobbly knees. An adult cousin was visiting at the time and I can remember her absolute grief over his death. I didn’t understand it then, but as I get older I’m beginning to understand more. How do these people, people we will never meet, mean so much to us? RIP Chester, Numb will always be at the top of my playlist.
Ps. I still have knobbly knees!
