In memory of Linda

just got back from the worst trip I have ever done. Won't go into details, but people can be so horrible. I didn't sleep at all as I was worrying about the flight back to London. Needless to say it was fine and I headed off to the car park to drive home.

i got a text message from a good friend to say that her Mum had passed away on Tuesday after a long fight with cancer. Words cannot describe the emotions I am feeling at the moment. Linda was such a caring, kind and thoughtful person. She introduced me to roast potatoes cooked in goose fat and always saved some for me after their Sunday lunch. My thoughts are with her husband Robin, son Mark and her daughter Clara. If you need me Clara, just yell!

I got home to find Babs lying in the run. She isn't well. I managed to drip feed her some water which she drank greedily. She is currently in a box and will be spending the night in my bedroom. I think she has egg peritonitis again. To be honest I don't expect her to be with us tomorrow.

When all is said and done, life can be crappy at times. Some days it seems too much to cope with but we all just get on and do it. For all the people out there I care about, You are always in my thoughts. I am sorry if I'm not around at times, but I am grateful to you all for being in my life.

To Linda. C x x x x


  1. Sending kind thoughts to your friends at this time. I have a penfriend for whom this will be her last summer - it is so sad - but it does put everything else into perspective when we have 'hard' emotional times.

    Just being there for someone, and remembering the happy times, is the best you can do.


  2. Hey Delia.

    I am so sorry to hear of this tragic news. I really understand what this is like. My beest friend passed away for no reason in his sleep 2 yrs ago , June just gone. Even now i cant believe he isnt here.

    I am really sorry to hear about your friend.

    Lots of Love
