10 August


Anniversaries are going to be hard – first birthday, first Christmas, first anniversary of death. Normally they would (mainly) be joyous times, but 10 August was hard for me, because this day was Jeremy’s birthday and he wasn’t around for me to celebrate with him.

I get emails from Twisted Sister – usually a weekly email, but occasionally (no- I’ve just found out they do this every Wednesday) they do a ‘this day in history’ and yes they did one yesterday for 10 August.

Anyway. Hard going. Grief hits you out of nowhere. I had a big glass of red wine and cheered his birthday. A celebration of life.
