Letter To My Nan – 4 Months

Hi Nan, I’m really struggling this month accepting that I’ll never see you again or be able to feel your warm arms around me as our glasses clash when we hug. I miss you! Grandad wasn’t very imaginative with the Christmas presents this year, he definitely needs you to guide him on that one. I did all our Christmas shopping …

Christmas Part 2

Yesterday, we had our Christmas family gathering round the MiLs. Hubby’s Grandparents, Uncle, Auntie & Cousins/OHs were all there ready for games, quizzes and food. My MiL is always really good at organising parties full of fun. Again, I think it’s best to just show you our day in pictures: I used my new camera today! Do you like the …

Letter To My Nan – 2 Months

Hi Nan, Life in Kent finally feels like home. I know you were really unhappy when we told you about the move but I also know that you can see we are happier over here. P1 is doing so well at school! We are all so proud. She’s basically reading short stories on her own, you know the Biff and …

“She didn’t really seem excited about seeing me”

I can’t believe that it’s November already. Well it’s actually now the 2nd, why am I not asleep yet? I travelled back to Essex this afternoon to pick P1 up from my Mums. I left at 3:30 expecting to miss rush hour on the way there, this did not happen, the traffic was horrendous!!! However, the takeaway pizza soon took …

“We won’t be trick or treating for Halloween”

P1 has been enjoying a few days and nights with her Nanny, Grandad and Uncle B back in Essex. She’s been there since Tuesday evening and I feel completely lost!!! I’m used to leaving her, or not seeing her but it’s been really odd this time. Since moving out and becoming a stay at home mum I’ve developed a routine, …

“It was really chilled and I loved having my Grandad over for the day”

I had my Grandad round yesterday. It was the first time he’s seen the new house so I made sure everything looked tidy. I’m still finding things a little difficult around him, I don’t know why really, he’s been my absolute world for ever. I think he’s just not the one I actually used to “talk” to all the time, …

Letter to My Nan – 1 Month

Hi Nan, It’s been over a month since you’ve been gone and so much has changed. I don’t know who to talk to anymore because nobody listened and answered in the way you did. I need you now more than ever to tell me everything’s going to be ok. I hope I did you proud at your funeral. I knew …

“I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral”

I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral. Not only was I asked to write, because apparently I’m really good at writing, but I’ve been asked to read out what I’ve written! My Grandad asked me in his really hopeful persuasive way that he has. At first I wasn’t really keen, I’ve never been good at speaking in …

“I’m feeling utterly overwhelmed”

I’m feeling utterly overwhelmed. So much has happened this week and it’s crazy that it is only Wednesday. We ended up in hospital on P1s first day of school, we’ve lost my beautiful Nan and we’ve had confirmation of our new house! We are moving. We are moving in just two days. Saturday morning! Today, we’ve been busy sorting P1s …

The Death Of My Nan 3rd September 2013

Hi Nan, I briefly saw you this morning, I say this morning but now it’s actually yesterday, we joked about how it was half past nine in the morning and you were still in bed. I told you how P1 had got on going into school. Then I left. I didn’t kiss you goodbye like I have been recently as …

“P1 was the thing that kept my grandad fit and active at 82 years old”

There was me crying earlier over boobies whilst my grandparents experienced their last ever Thursday with P1! My grandparents have been amazing. Since finding out I was pregnant at the young age of 15 they’ve always been there supporting me, through thick and thin. Whether it was help with money, words or just by being them, I knew I could …

“doctors have diagnosed yet another heart attack”

I’m on my way back from visiting my Nan. Yup, she’s in hospital again. I’m sad to say that it isn’t a shock to us. I’ve watched her go very downhill recently especially since our holiday. We came back to reports from my Grandad of Nan needing a lot of help with every day life, walking, dressing and going to …
