Tuesday 11 May 2010: Mess
74/365: Was trying to find the words to go along with this image... and... I know it's not a good image. It's not particularly well processed. But, part of blipfoto is about recording a shot a day which reminds me of that day in some way. Today, we were making arrangements for my Dad's funeral. The day has been surreal. I cannot make sense of the fact that he's gone so suddenly. I'm sitting there thinking 'I can't believe that I'm sat at a table discussing my Dad's funeral'. I'm waiting for him to come in from the other room, where he's been sitting quietly for a while. And he's not there. My Dad has gone. In waves of tears it hits me again and again.
Once the funeral arrangements were sorted out, I had to leave my Mum to get back home so that I could break the news to my children that their Grandad had died. A mess. A devastating mess.
