I heard some very sad news today. When we got back from holiday last night there were two messages on my voicemail from Sean, Gill’s partner, asking me to get in touch. I finally managed to call him to day and heard that Gill had died of a sudden heart-attack (just over a year ago).
I was at School with Gill and we both went on to work for Sainsburys albeit in different parts of the business. I’m pretty sure Gill was younger than me – in her late forties.
Our Christmas Card to them both had prompted Sean to get in touch.
It’s times like these when you realise how vulnerable we all are – and when your time comes…that’s it!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
