Bittersweet Days


Recommended Posts

Hey, we're doing ok, muddling through. Thank you for asking.

Funeral was 1st Feb, the day of the HEAVY snow.. the irony as it was the weather Alex hated most. :)

Girls are good, trying to carry on as normal as we can, work are being good and allowing me flexibility around school times etc.

I started a blog https://www.facebook.com/LifeWithoutMummy/ so people can follow our progress there.

I also revisited BBC Radio Berkshire, where they did an interview piece where they linked an old interview with Alex and I, with a new piece I recorded with the host last week (about 20mins long);

10/08/78 - 10/01/19 💔 It is with deepest sadness that I have to share that OUR Alex passed at 12:20 today. She fought so very valiantly against her brain tumour. Diagnosed in Feb 2014, Alex underw

It was my twin girls 8th birthday on Friday and yet it was a deeply bittersweet day. Day started with girls coming to our room to open their presents, and thankfully my sisters came to help spoil them

Lee - just saw this on the news tonight; it was great to see the girls looking so pleased, and well done you for getting the story out. Alex would, I'm sure, have been very proud of you all. http

Yup have been thinking about you too.  I’m meeting up with a few owners tmrw lunch time just south of Frimley. Late notice I know but if you fancied a drive I’d be happy to meet up with you and drive down together in convoy. :)

Sadly the Elise has been a little unloved recently (tucked up in the garage on a C-Tek tho). Usage will take a little more planning, for child care.

Just read about your wonderful family Lee on the Daily Mail app. You really are a credit to each other. You really are the true definition of ‘family’. Hope you are doing as well as you can be

I actually posted it to my FB page as a lovely story and only now realised it was you and your family. Lovely mate. And Kylie as well. I bet the girls were excited!

I too saw it on general news feeds and thought it was a nice story & act. Only clicked that it was your girls late last night.

Well done.

Just watched it Lee @CocoPops Very moving (I may have cried a little seeing their faces when they saw Kylie). You have amazing girls and are doing a stellar job in difficult circumstances. Great to see them so happy and hope you are doing ok as well.
