I was going to write a few blogs about Christmas and New Year but to be honest I don’t really feel like it.
The cheeriness I would have written with is sadly absent from my thoughts at the moment and I just feel very sad.
My Uncle Ken passed away unexpectedly last week. He was a great man, he lived a great life and he had a brilliant sense of humour.
He’s been in my life since my folks got together, so since I was around 6ish. He used to get me to stand on his feet and he danced me about at family gatherings until I was too old to do it anymore. I used to visit him and Aunty Sue in Manchester and stay with them. If we stopped at a little chef on the way he’s speak klingon to the waitresses to make me laugh. He’d tell silly jokes and constantly take the piss out of me and always have me laughing. He was a great man and I feel incredibly lucky to have known him.

Life is incredibly fragile and can be taken away so quickly. Do the things you keep putting off, don’t have regrets, forget about the small things that seem like such a big deal but put into perspective aren’t. Cherish those that are close to you, hold onto them and make sure they know how much you care.
I’m going to make it count. No more moaning about stupid, inconsequential stuff. Taking responsibility for the things that are stopping me from living my life the way I want to, debts included. Time to be the best person I can be.
