Anniversary apologies.

Where I thought it was 5.37 am this morning, I got up to find I should wear my glasses to bed. It was 1.37 am and I probably hadn’t been asleep above 90 minutes.  I started work and came across an early message from my daughter that today is the day. All week I’ve been dreading the arrival of Friday and suddenly Friday turns into Thursday.

It’s four years to the day since my beloved wife, and Yvonne’s beloved mother died. Though barely a day passes where I don’t think of her this time is always particularly intense for us both. I will probably take a break today from answering all your messages and please don’t bother writing a comment on this as I doubt I shall get to it. I just wanted to apologise to everyone for what might see like my ignorance today. I very much hope that Somnos will drop by and allow me to sleep the day away.

I’ve eaten breakfast because of the need to take tablets, not because of taking any pleasure from the food itself. Remarkably, despite the hand shaking, I spilled nothing. Perhaps it’s a good sign for the day.

  1. I know you said don’t bother with comments, and I won’t. I’m only sending you massive hugs over the cyber waves. I hope you will feel at least one. xo

  2. Wishing there was something I could send that would work, David. There isn’t, but it’s not from lack of wishing xxx

  3. A lovely lady, David… and one huge hug from me…

  4. Thinking of you and Yvonne. Big hugs.

  5. That photo of your dear Julia is wonderful. That smile could certainly light up any room. Sending you big hugs, David.

  6. I know you said not to comment but let me leave a HUG and a small prayer.

  7. I wish I had known her. I’m grieving with you.

  8. I am sorry to write David, but I just want to offer my condolences and give you a massive hug. Tears for your beloved!!

  9. Please don’t try to answer, David. Just sending my support since I knew you in cyberspace when this mournful day happened to your family. HUGS.

  10. So obvious in your photo is her Light, one of those rare beings. Sending hugs to dear you.

  11. Thank you for sharing this lovely and tender tribute, I’m sending you and your family loving hugs from my small corner of the world. Her beautiful picture brought tears to my eyes…

  12. Hope you had a comforting day remembering David 🙂 Many hugs.

  13. At least you were touched by the hand of the All-Mighty with a blessing in the form of a perfect angel who left this world far too soon, David.
    Hugs, man.

    • I’m not sure I was touched by anyone Robert but I knew something special was happening because of a series of remarkable co-incidences when we met .ie. I met her parent living in the flat my grandmother had lived in and I’d decorated… was still up.
      She left the world far to soon, by rights it should have been me and most people who read the blog wish it had been.
      Keep well

  14. Oh, David. Your grief comes through and has me wiping my eyes. No need to reply, just wanted you to know that I’m thinking of you and your daughter this day and grateful that Julia’s love was part of your life even though it hurts now. Massive hugs full of love, my friend. Thanks for sharing Julia’s beautiful smile.

  15. Thinking of you, David. Just remember that you’re not alone and there are many of us who will be thinking of you. Take care, my friend.
    Hugs to you.

  16. Whether or not you reply, dear friend, I’m sending love and hugs, as I know they will be received ♥♥♥

  17. My thoughts are with you. Sending you huge hugs from the South to the North!

  18. No need to reply. My thoughts are with you.

  19. No need to reply…just wrapping you in loving hugs. ❤ xXx ❤

  20. A hug is not a comment; it’s just a show of love . . . and respect. 😦

  21. I am sending you no comment. But I am sending you a deep intense hug. It’s such a hard loving hug that I know you can feel it all the way where you live. And I know that your wife feels it too. 🙏💙🙏💙

  22. To have had the privilege of having someone so amazingly glorious in your life is a very special thing. My heart is with you during this time!!!!!!!

    • I certainly feel privileged and very lucky to have had her in my life. It was just not for long enough from my point of view. By all the statistics of Valhalla I should have gone first and left her to enjoy the grandchildren.
      Thanks for your kind words.

  23. Hi David, I just wanted to check in on you. Sending you bunches of hugs.

  24. No words, dear David and I really didn’t like to press the Like button. I hope time, hugs, family, and friends bring with them some peace. Big hugs xoxox

    • Sometimes that button just doesn’t seem appropriate. I’m sure all those things will help…, Donna. I don’t want to forget her though or have Yvonne think I’m forgetting her. The trouble is I know I should have gone first, her going was so unfair, she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.
      Yeah, life sucks sometimes I know.
