As my 6 year old said the other day ‘I hate life, things just happen’.  Before you call social services this was in response to the realisation that his longed for new denim jacket was too small!  It was hard to hear though as this last week my family had an unimaginable and devastating blow.

My lovely brother in law fell from a considerable height while on holiday and is now in a very bad way.  I’m not going to go into the details because I am heartbroken and it isn’t really my story to tell.  It’s easy to feel right now that life and ‘the way things just happen’ really sucks but when someone you love is desperately clinging on to it you realise just how precious life is.

So I’m sending this tune out to Cathy and Tossie and their family not so much because the sentiment fits the circumstances but because it is a tune I know my sister really likes and that’s all. X
