Difficult Times

20:51 Renée 11 Comments

Hi guys, I apologize for the long silence. Unfortunately, our world got turned up side down by the very sudden passing of my boyfriends father. I just got back to the UK after spending some time in the Netherlands, sadly having to return without my boyfriend because he has to stay a little longer to arrange things (his mother also passed away a few years ago). Unfortunately the whole matter has also put us in a financial hole; we had to spend all our savings on plane tickets and now my boyfriends university has the nerve to put him on unpaid leave because he is staying away too long, which means our only income is temporarily gone. So all together, things are very difficult at the moment, emotionally and financially, and probably will be for some time.

I think I will be back to blogging soon, but if you don't hear from me for a while you now know why.

p.s. The moment I returned I have started to stock up my etsy shop with PFD patterns and will also be adding more genuine vintage clothing soon, so please keep an eye out to see if there's anything you like. (We could really use every single $ / € / £ that comes our way.)


  1. I'm sorry to hear that you are having a hard time right now, I hope things pick up for you both really soon. x

  2. Hello Renée, I'm so sorry to hear about your difficult time. I hope things get better soon. I get an idea of what you're getting through. Since my father passed away, 3 months now, I'm still trying to recover and my blog is a little abandoned. Hopefully we can find the way out soon. I will check your Etsy shop now! :)

    Strong hug,
    Miss Beta xx

    1. Oh no I'm so sorry to hear about your loss too :( I just read about it on your blog, I don't know how I could have missed that post! I wish you all the best and lots of strength in this difficult time xx

  3. So sorry to hear about your sad news and sending you both best wishes. Take your time about blogging - we'll still be here for you.

  4. Ik lees het nu pas! Gecondoleerd! Wat een nare en verdrietige situatie! Heel veel sterkte toegewenst!
