    So it's been a week. Or nearly a week.

    How's it going? Started a diet? Joined a gym?

    Mine started with a horrible cold which turned into a fever.

    Then my cousin called on new years day to say her dad (my uncle had been taken into intensive care).

    Another phone call later that evening to say that he'd just died.

    We're still waiting for the post mortem to find out what actually happened, though he'd been a long time sufferer with MS and had complications later due to it.

    So as a result I've managed to nearly clear out some bottles of whisky that would otherwise sit in the cupboard for years.

    He's the man who gave me my introduction to spannering with cars and was the only other person in our family into motorbikes.

    We had some good times.

    Well the nights young and there's a few bottles of Hobgoblin to get rid of yet

    Happy new year.

    That's not a good start. Very sad to hear it. Keep his memory alive and remember the good times.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your uncle Ant. May he rest in peace.

    Loss is hard. You go through phases: anger, denial, depression etc. It's not nice but it's normal. All the best to you and yours.

    Life is short, so live it.

    My mate text me to say his dad's just died. Not unexpected in any way, but sad to hear it. Del was a legend in that he could start an argument in an empty room, but was fiercely principled. When my mate was going to senior school, he lived about 20 yards from one, so Del assumed he would go there. In their wisdom, ILEA (as it was) decided he should go to a school two buses away. Del objected in every way possible and when that failed, he went and sat outside the education head's office for about 4 weeks awaiting an appointment until she relented, they had a meeting and a space was found in the school he lived next to. Bear in mind he was a self-employed plumber, so lost a month's money. How many of us would be that principled and determined?

    RIP Del, with your one remaining tooth and lethal skill with a BBQ sausage.

    RIP Ant's uncle. Fair play for passing on the spannering skills.

    Still no news on the post mortem yet (he may have had it but my cousin might not want to talk about it at the moment), hospital had said he'd had a cardiac arrest whilst in intensive care, which is all we know yet.
