Words cannot express how unbelievably sad we have felt over the past two weeks. Each night when we have gone to bed we have all hoped that in the morning we would wake up to find it has just been a horrible dream but alas as each day goes by we know that it is true and we are our lives will never be the same again.
There has been so much to do and on Friday we said goodbye to Andy for the last time. Everyone was given a job to do and we were entrusted to help with the food at Grandad Colins house afterwards.
We helped to put together a list of all of Andy's favourite foods like battenbery cake, chocolate muffins, jelly babies, marshmallows, sausage rolls and foam ice creams cones with hundreds and thousands on top. It all looked very beautiful especially as Auntie Sarah was able to source some orange and black plates and muffin cases so there was a Wolves theme going on and we tried to feast greatly even though we didn't have much appetite.
We don't usually partake in alchofrolic beverages but on this occassion we toasted Andy's life by sharing a bottle of Blue WKD .... which was rather nice .... although it gave Darrell hiccups and made Nigel drowsy, so we felt it best to put him to bed. It was a strange day, but we were very happy to do our bit.
Thank you for all your kind wishes, thoughts and cards, we are now back with avengence, ready to take the bit by the horse, squeeze every single bull by its horns and embrace each amazing and great day for all its worth ..........
