Today was always going to be a difficult day. A year since my brothers sudden death. I still can't believe it's been a year, to be honest I still can't believe he's gone! I miss him so much. I was 6 months pregnant when he died and I wish more than anything he could have met Ava. He would have adored her.
My mum has had a bench placed down here, it really is stunning and it's somewhere she can sit and think about him. As his ashes are up in Shropshire with us, it's nice for them to have somewhere down here. We took a quick trip to the bench this morning, I've said that every year I want to take a picture of Ava on the bench, it was freezing though so we only had time of a couple of quick photos and we rushed back to the car.
I do love coming down to my mums, she's a fab cook so I always put on about half a stone when I'm here!
We were feeling quite ill last night and thought we might have to come home today but luckily it seems to have only been a 24 hour thing.
We have a busy plan for the next few days. Shopping tomorrow, London on Thursday and taking Ava to see Father Christmas on Friday! Busy busy...
