Hangin’ tough

It’s a Bank holiday weekend. For the second time this month the UK gets a three day weekend (except if you work in a shop, tourist attraction or service industry in which case you’ll be working overtime). I was brought up in a tourist area and learned very quickly that the traffic went south slower on a Bank holiday that it was better to stay in. Still many people will set out hopefully aiming for the seaside or country park and will spend a good chunk of time sitting in a traffic queue. My wife and I (it’s only been a couple of weeks and it still feels strange to say it) are having a weekend to ourselves.
It’s a weird one really. For one thing it’s a busy time of year for me son three days break is a godsend and for another we haven’t had moment to just be together since the ceremony but the kicker is that this weekend marks the anniversary of my father in law’s death. The first one. It will be hard on both if us.
Honestly I don’t know how this is going to play out.
There are events we can go to. Things to see. Maybe that’s what will happen. There will be photographs and ice cream. Maybe we will go out to eat. Maybe we will spend time in the garden pulling up weeds. It will be fine. We will get through this. I’ll let you know. In the meantime….

We will remember this man and raise a glass. Cheers.
