Sorry For Being A Bit Quiet
Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been online much lately either on my blog or Twitter and Facebook. This is because on 22nd February my grandad passed away after suffering a short illness. He was 80 years old and was a truly wonderful man, always happy and cheerful and extremely intelligent. I've spent the last week at my grandma's keeping her company whilst my Mum had to return home to France for a few days. She had spent nearly a month with my grandma after grandad got rushed into hospital at the beginning of February but she needed to go home to sort a few things out before coming back. At 82 my grandma is still reasonably fit and active but I didn't like the idea of her being in the house by herself. She insisted on doing all the cooking but roped me into helping out with the housework and we kept each other going. Grandad had been in a nursing home since December and was becoming increasingly frail so in a way we all knew that he didn't have long left but it's still very upsetting. But at the same time it's also a relief to know that he isn't suffering anymore. The funeral is on Monday and at the moment I don't really feel in the mood to be writing much about food. I'll be back soon, but just thought I'd give you all a little update in case you're wondering where I've been.
