She died 9 months ago today. So long and yet such a short time. We’re all out of sorts. I found all the hat patterns we had for knitting hats when Rosie’s hair fell out at the weekend – I mean I found them at the weekend, not her hair fell out at the weekend. Although it did fall out over a couple of days, I suppose. I’ve put them somewhere safe.
Deep breath and let’s consider some good things – Post Office John is romping ahead with our bloodometer – he has brought it to 23 units now. He’s going to get a special TKOE award at this rate for the highest number of donations. Only 7 units to go to repay what Rosie used.
We now only have to raise another £13310.94. Huge thanks to Rocks for Rosie and Three Bags Full Short Story Competition.
Last night’s gig went really well so big thanks to everyone and especially Kim for organising it.
And because today is a sad anniversary, I’m going to share some particularly heart warming news – lovely Gwen, who read out a very special piece at Rosie’s funeral, is 10 in July. And for her birthday, she has asked for donations to TKOE instead of presents and she and a group of friends are Race for Lifeing as well. What a lovely, lovely, lovely thing to do.
Going to have a nice cup of tea now.
