Have never ever stopped missing you and I don’t think I ever will. I don’t remember what it feels like to not be broken. My heart never beat the same again. Sending buckets of kisses on the wind and more hugs than an Angel can cope with. We miss you with our broken hearts forever…

Today our furniture arrived. We weren’t expecting the driver to “dump” it and threaten his company on the phone to walk off the job if he was made to do anything more than that.

After yesterday’s triathlon of tears, I was glad we had put in the diary to spend the day together today. Mike’s a better planner than me these days and he knew today’s date would be his wobble date. We had planned to walk in the countryside but swapped it for shopping in the hope the…
