Very sad news. Updated


This weekend has been very sad,  Vernon's father died yesterday, he was taken into hospital on Thursday to the John Radcliffe hospital Oxford,   But he was very poorly we went up to Oxford on Friday so we did see him and yesterday we were at his bedside when he died.

We are staying at Dee's, (Vernon's sister) to help her sort things of course,  she has been through so much this last eighteen months as Peter died November 2011,  Peters mother died last July and now this.  We hoped for an improvement on 2012, 12 days in and another family member died,  and it was Dads birthday yesterday, we wished him a happy birthday but he never opened his cards.

On top Dads brother is also very poorly and does not know that Dad was taken into hospital,  we could even have another funeral on top.

Please excuse me if I don't comment on your blogs for a while, I will try and look at your lovely
work,  I will catch up when I can.   I have not even thought of the TIAS I will catch up and join in as soon as I can, I have been looking forward to doing it,   I'll get there when I can.

We will be traveling between Somerset and Oxford now and then,  so hopefully the threaten snow will go somewhere else.
Take care and thanks for reading my blog today.

Since writing this piece Dads brother who was very ill died last night, so it's two funerals.
Thank you for all your lovely comments you are all so kind.
