An Explanation

It has been almost 6 weeks since my last post and I need to explain.....

Two days after I wrote it my dear Father in Law was taken into hospital during the night.  He remained there for more than 5 weeks despite the efforts of the social care system to send him home to an empty flat, mainly because he was so weak and picked up 2 infections whilst in there.  He spent his 94th birthday there too.

It is with great sadness (but a little relief) that I have to tell you he passed away a few days ago at 1.10 am.  We couldn't get there in time.  It has been incredibly stressful and worrying for him and the family. OH and I have been walking in a daze for weeks and now there is so much to arrange and the rented flat to clear out.

I dip in and out of reading my favourite blogs just for a bit of normality but don't have the strength to post replies, I'm afraid.

I hope to come back soon, my bloggy friends, do please bear with me......
