All the other news around here hasnt been good. As you all know I always document things when they happen, whether good or bad as that is part of life isnt it and I can look back and remember things too when I need to. Our darling cat Meg passed away 2 Sundays ago. She had been ill on the Saturday and Sunday morning we couldnt find her. Our neighbours came over to alert us to the fact that she was asleep under the car, (not run over though). She must have been there all night and passed away which was heartbreaking. She would have been 14 yrs old in October, but she had a wonderful life and was very loved by us all.
Today Paul and I attended a funeral of my best friend's husband who passed away suddenly last Friday morning from a massive heart attack. I think I am still in shock and cannot believe it has happened. My friend is 65 and her husband was 73, but still you forget that people are young at heart and still think the way we do. I always remember that when my kids say that I am old that my mind isnt, it has just learnt more in life's dealings so I sometimes know the outcome whereas my kids do not. My friend has a very loving family who will make sure she is allright but I am going to try and spend lots of time with her so she doesnt stay shut away inside the house all the time. A little bit at a time they say, and I have to try and get her knitting again one day. It is all too much to think about at the moment, and it still doesnt seem real but it is. I hope that you all hug your partners and kids tonight and realise how many special people we have in our lives who help make us who we are and that we are all loved in one way or another.
I hope you all have a very happy week
