From Nightmare to Peace – I’m Back

From Nightmare to Peace – I’m Back


Plaisted Publishing House has been quiet for far too long! Nearly 18 months of nothing. Now is the time to explain and hopefully you will understand and to some…forgive me for being missing in action.

It all started in September 2017. My girls and I were going to the UK, them to visit grandparents and me to check in on my parents. It was meant to be long term…Settle there for a few years and travel…once my husband joined me. Sadly it was anything but good. Our reception was negative and got worse. It only evened out once my husband and son arrived. He wouldn’t take any bull, and everyone started to behave a bit better.

Sadly due to immigration and wrong information etc my husband ended up back in New Zealand along with our son who wanted to attend University.  You could call my husband and I joined at the hip…always holding hands, very much in love. Without him…yeah…things went downhill fast.

By this time I was working as a Live in Carer, working down south. I loved it most of the time, my clients had a mixture of issues. My favourite was living by the beach with a lady and the neighbour’s cat.

Things sadly continued to go wrong. I was in full stress mode, had mental health issues and technically fell apart. So you can see, life wasn’t overly good which is why my company wasn’t doing much work. I worked through Christmas and New Year without seeing my daughters then went to France to try and get myself sorted. Which to a degree I did. I ended up resigning and booking my ticket home to New Zealand.
     It had been 5 months since I’d seen my husband and son. I hated being a split family. In fact, I still do, though I know my girls are ok in the UK at present and they can return anytime they are ready.

The stress …or most of it …fell away once I landed in Auckland. I WAS HOME. MY HEART IS HERE. I LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND IT’S PEOPLE.

Anyway, I am back. I am SHARING and RE-FOLLOWING other sites.
