People don't update bookmarks and notifications any more - I know that I don't. I use a feed reader, so at least I know when blogs have been updated, even after several years. But I touch base here once in a while, if there's something to say that you might feel you'd want to know.
I wish I didn't have this to say today, but I'll have to. My Tim died a fortnight ago. It was sudden and unexpected, though he was waiting for an evaluation to decide on treatment for a failing aortic valve. There isn't much more to say, I've had to repeat the tale too many times already. He died at his house in Reading, so I'm holding his funeral there and then bringing his ashes back here, where there will be a short service in our local church, where we were married.
People are looking after me but it's hard to bear it. There isn't any alternative, there's too much to do.
