Hi guys.

Sorry for not being present in blogland lately. Life's been full, as usual. Lot's of time has been spent in Newcastle with my family. Things have not gone well with mum. This afternoon, at about a quarter to two, she passed away. At the moment, my feelings are mixed, to say the least. Most tangible is the feeling of relief that mum is finally free of the dreadful pain of the past few weeks.

I guess that I am numb. Everything is surreal. At her house, it just feels like the same empty place as the last few weeks whilst she has been in hospital.

A busy few days are ahead.

And then I will get on with the business of living without her in my life. Not sure about this one. Actually, it scares the crap out of me.

I guess I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Thanks to all for your thoughts.

More later. I'll need to blog, I think.

I am so sorry. I really am.

She had had enough of it all I suppose. And who could blame her?

I have been thinking of you so much lately and will now be hoping that you let yourself get through this any way you need to.

Doing the cleaning up thing is going to be tough and if you need anything, let me know.
