Aren't people kind. I had lunch with an ex neighbour today, we were never particularly close, but have been lunching monthly, since John died. She got in touch, after hearing from another neighbour, and she is also a widow.Thank you Kassy. My friend has just left-waiting for friend number two who is coming at 1.30pm. My friends from Bournemouth have sent me a wonderful bouquet to let me know that both Pete and I are in their thoughts. They were superb pals as they supported us so well.
A sobering conversation with my visitor this morning; she has been married twice-never happily. Out of the 25 years that Pete and I were together he was ill for nearly 9 BUT even if Pete had only been well for one of those years it still would have been worth it. We packed a lot into our time together. In a strange way I feel blessed. Those good years, and the memories, will always stay with me.
Love to you all

With you on New Year's Eve. I've always hated it. Probably because I was a single mum until dau was 9, so was always alone. Except one New Year's Eve I was with her real dad, and that was lovely. But since then, I've hated it. I usually ignore it - and thankfully, being in the country, I don't hear the fuss.I hope your Christmas is a special one, with your grandson especially but I know Pete will be beside you all the time.
New Year's Eve has always been a bit of a downer for me and the jollity so often seems feigned. I'll be tucked up in bed and wishing Jules Holland would just go to someone else's party once in a while!
it is kind of your friends to ask you though and I hope it is a worthy of your smile.
Love to you at this difficult time. xxx
