Christmas and New Year was on hold

Sorry for the lack of posts, the blog was put on hold for a family disaster over the Christmas Holiday.  Its been an emotional roller Coaster this Christmas and New year so much so they were cancelled as far as we were concerned.

Before I explain may I wish everyone a belated Happy Christmas and a prosperouse and healthy New Year

At the beginning of December Mum had a fall and broke her hip so was in hospital.   Dad was on his way to visit her on 19th December and had a massive heart attack on the way to the hospital and could not be revived.

Mum was told after her operation and then went down hill rapidly passing away on 28th December from both grief and other medical problems.

We had the funeral on 27th January.  They had been together 64 years and were rarely apart so it was fitting they were laid to rest together.

Not a good start to the year but hopefully we'll soon be able to get back out on the cut.  I'd post more on our plans in another post.

I am late catching up with boat blogs and terribly sad to read your news. While your loss is a terrible grief, perhaps some comfort may be had in the fact that one has not left the other behind to try and cope.

May 2020 bring you better time ahead, with kindness, contentment, and fun among the boating community on the cut which will will hopefully be a boon to you.

Kind regards,

Jaq Biggs
