Sad weekend.

Hi everyone,

This may be a bit of a downer post so feel free to skip this :)

It's been a bit of a sad weekend here. You may remember from my last post that I mentioned it was my nan's 93rd birthday on Sunday.

It was also the day she passed away - without any warning.

It was such a shock, we were getting ready to go see her and celebrate when my Auntie from London called my dad to say she had spoken to my Nan and she didn't sound herself.

Now, my nan lived on her own without a stair lift, without any outside help. She didn't even have a walking stick or hearing aid, we were all so inspired by how she got on with life.

My Dad called Nan to see how she was, she said she didn't feel too good and was getting a bit dizzy, so they called an ambulance and my dad went to meet her at the hospital with his other sister whilst my Auntie from London decided to drive up to Liverpool.

My dad kept us informed, we were told her blood pressure was low, and she was having some difficulties breathing. We expected her to bounce back like she always did.

Within 2 hours she had passed away.

I never got to give her her birthday card, I hope she would have liked it.

Love you Nan, R.I.P xxx

Sorry for a down post, hopefully I'll be back soon with some nice things to share, but they say it's good to get things off your chest - and I know you lot are good listeners :)

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
