Hello! I'm back on planet blog, after what seems like an orflee long absence. Well, if you read Make it smirk, my sister's blog, you'll know that our dear old Dad just died, so we have been in Dunedin to say our final goodbyes.
This was him in December last year, just days after hearing that he had "days or weeks" left to live. He really was as cheerful as he looks- told us funny stories until we wept with laughter, stayed upbeat all the time. If we succumbed to tears he quickly jollied us out of it, saying "I've had my life, don't be sad." I can hardly see to type for crying now actually, I already miss him so much.
Six billion people in the world, now minus one of the really good ones. More about craft next post.
