Topic: I've not forgotten you!!
A big hello to my CC family,
As the subject says, I have not forgotten you all. I still check the site often and think of you all. I can't believe it will nearly be 17 months since my precious Dad left us. Mom is doing ok, still having her bad days and unfortunately the bad rainy weather we are having in the UK is not helping. We had a little falling out just before Fathers Day, at times I think she forgets she's not the only one that's still grieving, and I understand it's a different grief and her world really has been turned upside down, but I miss Dad too, so does my Nan, Son and Husband. Anyway after a few days of the silent treatment from Mom she was ok, and we've been ok since. I have taken a step back a little the passed few months, instead of seeing her everyday I now see her 3-4 times a week but we still speak 3 or 4 times a day. This seems to be working better and she has become more independant which is good. We still include her on all our outings etc, sometimes she will come and sometimes she won't, but I've asked which is all I can do.
My darling son turned 11 in May, this week he has been to his new Secondary School for Induction week, this helps them find their feet ready for September, luckily he enjoyed his first day, I'm hoping the enthusiasm continues. He has his Prom next week and then a leavers tip to London. The week after is his leaving play which is "Alice in Wonderland" and then his Leavers assembly. I have stocked up on the tissues as I think the next few weeks there may be lots of tears lol. He is going to the same school my Dad went to which he is over the moon about. He loves to think he's like my Dad.
Lainy, I'm still finding feathers, smelling aftershave and my laptop really does have a mind of it's own at times, as does the TV. One example was Mom was talking about a programme Dad like to watch which I'd never heard of. One afternoon the television kept changing channels, I took no notice and kept turning it back to what I was watching, after this happening 3 times, I realised the programme it was switching over to was my Dads programme lol.
Dads work organised another charity night in May and we raised £610 for AMMF, I am also taking part in the Race for life soon, so hopefully will raise a little more, every penny helps .
I hope you are all well. As always love and best wishes to you all.
