Strange goings on around here. Everyone is just trying to get through to the end of term without expiring. This time of year is tricky for me, it would be our wedding anniversary on the 29th, and then of course this time I will get to two years without Nigel on August 10th.
Two years without him.... that means that Alex has now had half of her life without her Daddy. Sophie has had a third of her life without him. Me, well it's just 2 years to me. Two long years at that.
There are lots of celebratory events lately, all of which feature happy families. I am so happy for everyone involved, but equally desperately unhappy that my girls and me are missing out on being part of what is perceived and portrayed as 'the norm'.
One thing I have noticed of late, is that there are some people in this world who never quite lose the desire to poke fun, be a bit spiteful. It is a trait I abhorr. And despite the fact that life has thrown hurdles aplenty to people around me, being spiteful still happens.
Shame really, but such is life.
A song I used to have playing on this blog is what I leave with you.
My life has moved on these last two years, but still I would give everything I have to fix you, Nigel.
