Had a visit from a lovely lady from ‘The Menigitis trust’. She helped to explain the pain and trauma we are experiencing following the sudden sudden death of our wonderful , lively , scatty ( but she could always pull it out of the bag ), funny , happy , healthy , beautiful, kind, creative Rosie. I know everyday I write all this mindless dross, but its only because I love her so much. ( Rosie – not the lady from TMT ! ) The 4 of us are in a place I hope none of you ever have to go to. Please keep supporting us, ask us how we are ( you might not like the answer ) and suggesting stuff. We love to hear your news ( even though it can be quite painful for us )and we always love to laugh . Some fool once said ‘time is a healer’ – what a glib, crass statement, please don’t assume we have ‘moved on’, the longing for Rosie is unbearable.
Later on I had a visit from a lovely friend and colleague of mine , Steve ( yes the one who sends all the jokes – unprintable ). He showed me the photos my class’s residential holiday to Devon. The staff and students all looked wonderful , so relaxed and happy. The tide was out in Bigbury Bay and to see them all paddling…….plus of course the picnics, icecreams, Dartmoor, Janice fishing , dins out , the sunny patio breakfasts, Buckfast Abbey etc etc – I bet there wasn’t as much singing ……….
James and Kate for the final ????
