He left us on Saturday morning at 5.20am. He had my mum and my nan with him.
Typically, I'd got up bright and early on Saturday morning, and whilst I was in the shower, I'd made my mind up that I was going to go and see him. (This was before I knew he'd gone) Then I got the call from mum saying that I was too late. I went to see him anyway, and he looked so peaceful and relaxed, he was just so so cold.
The hospice he was in were fantastic, I couldn't have asked for nicer people to be looking after him and my nan in his final few weeks.
It still doesn't seem real at the moment, I went to nans last night and it was strange that he wasn't there, but he's not been there for the last 3 weeks when I've been. It's going to take some time to get used to it.
I've told the children that he is now in the sky with the stars, and every night when we put them to bed they blow him a kiss out of the window.
I've sorted out childcare for the funeral. The godparents mum is going to have them. We've known her for years and the children know who she is, so i'm happy with that, although it might be when E is at school anyway, and we would want her at the wake. So the chances are she will only have 1 of the children anyway.
Thank you for all your thoughts and well wishes. They're really appreciated x

Thank you all.
Lauren, I've not been in work for a couple of days, I've had a horrible cold, and all the crying made me feel even worse.
The funeral has been set for 6th November, I can't believe we've got to wait another 2 weeks. They must be busy right now.
