To all my wonderful followers,
You may have noticed that I’ve been quiet lately. This last month has been rough but these last few days, in particular, have really thrown me into the deep.
Over the weekend my father-in-law passed away after a 6-month battle with illness. He was finally diagnosed three and a half weeks ago with myeloma amyloidosis, and although he began treatment straight away, his body could simply not take any more. He entered palliative care on Friday. We looked forward to spending as much time as possible over the next week or fortnight with him, but not even 15 hours later he passed peacefully in his sleep early Saturday morning
with myself and my fiance at his side.
Commencing officially on the 16th of this month, I’ve elected to take a 6-month leave of absence from my candidature so that I can be there to support my fiance’s family through this time. I will also be going on hiatus from regular posting on both this main blog and my personal blog, @sassy-cicero-says, for a period of at least one month. As many of you know, I run this blog alone, and I simply do not have the energy to keep up with the day to day posting at this time. My inbox and submission box will remain open and I will check them regularly in case any of you would like to submit posts and I will post when I am able – I love the Classics community dearly and want to keep up with all the wonderful people/finds/research.
Until next time,
Admin @sassy-cicero-says <3
