Until today I had no real valid reason for not posting - just couldn't seem to shake the shadow that the cast laid over Xmas and everything else. I have so much to tell............but now tragically I do have a valid reason for a further delay.
My uncle (who I mentioned previously) died very suddenly today (well yesterday actually) and unlike my FIL who we had very little to do with, we were very close to my uncle. I must admit I feel like I've lost my anchor as he was my only remaining close relative apart from DS. There is no-one left of that generation and he was only 74!
Anyway please bear with me and THANK YOU all for being there.
