  • Blog Post: My story

    My Dad died on 7th March 2012 after a long battle against cancer. It was a very difficult time when he died. I was 17 at the time and I was studying my A Levels to get into University. We had been told that it was expected that he wouldn't live very long, but that didn't mean that his death wasn't...

  • Blog Post: Disbelief

    Evening All, For me I have to say that the hardest part of this whole shitty journey is the fact that nearly three months later I am still completely confounded by the whole thing. I am suspended in this foggy painful disbelief that makes moving on completely impossible. It sounds normal doesn’t...
  • Forum Post: Reliving the last days before my dad died

    Six months ago today my dad died. And I don't know why today should feel any worse than last week, but somehow these milestones in time really do feel different - worse. I feel sick thinking about it. And yet I can't stop reliving the last week of his life - which was spent in a hospice - and...
  • Forum Post: 5 months on and it gets harder

    I'm not sure what exactly I'm hoping for by writing this, but I am finding each day harder and harder. My dad died of primary liver cancer in May this year, and was only diagnosed in March. It all happened so fast that even once he was dead I was just so in shock I don't think it really hit...
  • Forum Post: Can't process

    Hi, My dad died a month ago to colon cancer. I was supposed to be starting university but have decided to defer a year to give myself room to grieve, work for some money etc. I wasn't there with him when he died, and my brother and step-mum were (thank god). I had written him a letter from where...
  • Blog Post: Out Of The Blue

    On Sunday 2 September I braced myself for grief. From a few days before I knew what was coming. Six months since he took his final breath. I lit all his candles, and I kneeled down in front of my photos, ‘the shrine’ to him. I was sad. As I spoke to him I shed a tear. But I didn’t...
  • Blog Post: Mother Dearest

    I am a daddy’s girl; his little princess and mini-me. My mum knows this, and over the last 18 months she has watched as my world shattered around me; as I dedicated my every moment to care for him, and then my every tear as I grieved the loss of my first true love. My parents seperated when...
  • Blog Post: Rainbows and Angels and Shooting Stars?

    On 12 November 1986 I laid eyes on my first love. On 1 March 1986, nine months earlier I had been at his wedding. I was nothing more than the size of a peanut; just starting to grow the fingers that I would wrap around his, and the lips that would kiss him so lovingly for the next 25 years were just...
  • Blog Post: The Rainbow

    03 March 2012 On his first day of testing out his new magic powers he sent me a shooting star. 04 March 2012 Every day since I have seen a rainbow. For the first few days it appeared on the carpet outside my bedroom, reflecting off a nearby mirror. I began to fear the day I didn't...
  • Blog Post: There Is Something Wrong With The Tree

    02 March 2012 A story shared between a father and a daughter. A story for the past. For the present. And for the future. As a young girl he read The Magic Faraway Tree stories to me at bedtime. As a mother I hope to share these with my own children. But first I want to reshare them with my father...
  • Blog Post: Twinkle

    03 March 2012 We still haven't got round to naming his star. How ever will he manage to find his way to Rendezvous 2200 if we haven't given it the official name yet?!?!! Rendezvous 2200 officially named on 03/04/2012 - everyone told to watch out for shooting stars in the sky at night, daddy...
