A little break

I would just like to give you an update as to why I haven't visited any blogs these past few days.  Sadly, I lost my wonderful father on Wednesday.  It was sudden and unexpected, and also not even 4 months after losing my mother. 

So I'm having a bit of time away from the computer to come to terms with it - I do truly understand he's happy now and with mum - he really couldn't live without her.  His heart was just broken with her loss.

Next week is the funeral, and then I'll be back.  Take care all xx
