Hello everyone. A quick update - my dad passed away Tuesday of this week. It was very peaceful and dignified and me and mum were by his side. We managed to keep him at home which was what he wanted but that was with the help of carers, district nurses and hospice nurses. We will be eternally grateful for all the help we received, it gave mum and myself the strength to carry on each day and give dad the support he needed.

I'm sure I shall be back blogging very soon - thank you  for sticking with me xx
