The local community gave the farmer a wonderful send-off in our local village church on Wednesday. The church was full to capacity and the congregation gave £550 in David's memory to be shared between the church funds and our local hospital MRI Scanner appeal.
Now it is time to pick up the pieces - I owe it to his memory to move on as far as I can. At the moment my niece is staying with me, but she returns home on Sunday. Already good friends are rallying round - I have been invited out to lunch on both Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday (my son is away over Easter) and this afternoon Tess has returned home after spending three weeks with my dear friend G.
I am not at all sure how Tess views coming home - she has had the 'Life of Riley' for the last three weeks - lots of long walks, lots of cuddles on the sofa in the evenings. At present she is wandering around looking a little bit lost. But she will be great company for me once she gets back to normal. In fact both of us have now got a big learning curve.
I shall try to post every day from now on so that I get some sort of pattern back into my life. Thank you to everyone for the tremendous support you have given me.
