It's been a while since I last blogged so apologies. In truth I have my good days and my bad days since my Mam died. Life has to go on I know but it's easier said than done when everything you do reminds you of how much you miss someone.
My Dad returned to his job in Egypt at the beginning of August, a big step for him and a difficult one having to repeat the events of the previous few weeks to colleagues who wanted him to know that they had been thinking of him. I missed him dreadfully and was happy to be waiting at the airport on his return 3 weeks later. Another hurdle for him going home to an empty house for the first time in over 35 years. It's hard taking his grief on as well as my own but he needs supporting at the moment and I promised Mam I would look after him for her.
Colin & I finally got our postponed holiday last week. We didn't go far just 63 miles away to Berwick on Tweed. Sharon Duncan lent us her caravan for a week. Wow what a caravan. It even had central heating. Maisie enjoyed her twice daily walks on the nearby beach and her trip on the train at Heatherslaw. I was thrilled to see the wild seals in Eyemouth harbour and again my mind drifted back to Mam because I would have been straight on the phone to her telling her all about our day.
