In the middle of the night after my gorgeous, wonderful, dedicated and truly fab husband, Dunc, died suddenly during a game of football, in April 2013, I started a thread on Mumsnet asking for a little handholding. Several weeks later, I was invited to write a blog for the Huffington Post, as the editor had seen my thread. Initially, I assumed, in my ignorance, that it was a small local newspaper in East Sussex. Someone gasped when I told them about the invitation, so I decided to Google it and found it was rather more significant. The first six posts that I have added to my blog here were first posted on the Huffington Post in August 2013.
I am writing in memory of Dunc, and in order to try and order my thoughts a little as I start my new life with Sam, aged 5, and Thomas, aged 3. They keep me busy and make sure that I don’t have too long to dwell on things at any one time.
