12/08/2009 (Day 3.224) - Some Things Are Beyond The Abilities Even Of Lego's Greatest Hero
Catherine's mum died in the early hours of this morning. She'd been very ill for months, and in a virtual coma for the last couple of weeks, so it wasn't unexpected; I think we were prepared for it as much as we could have been. Indeed she had been in so much pain and discomfort, that in many ways it's a relief. But it's still hard on all of us, especially Catherine. Wednesday is actually the day we get together in the evening as a family, so after we've seen the funeral directors this afternoon we'll still do that, and remember some good times together. And eat chips.
A year ago today I was emerging from the darkness.
