Hi and welcome to Lory Be.  I am a happily married Mum to two gorgeous young men, older sister to the cute boy above, and was lucky to live a relatively charmed life until two and half years ago.  Suddenly I was living with a breast cancer diagnosis and all that comes with that.  A treasured cousin passed away.  I lost my much adored Dad to Leukaemia and then a dear friend never awoke from “routine” surgery only four weeks after saying goodbye to Dad.  My world was turned upside down and I couldn’t escape it.  It was a shit storm. Writing which had always been a source of comfort and joy was no longer an outlet for me.  I couldn’t string a sentence together some days much less write one.

However life does go on and slowly but surely I am navigating my way back to the Lory I used to be.  She is a little beaten up and bruised, changed in many ways, but she is on her way back. Meditation, wine, change of job, more wine, and fabulous family and friends have helped me along and I hope my weekly blogs bring a smile, tear or a knowing relatable nod to your day.

If you like what you read please let me know.  I look forward to sharing a lot of me with all of you.

Love Lory xx
