The Countdown is On.

Well, it is now just under a month until the 1 year anniversary of Mark's accident.

What a strange way to describe the day of someones death! As an anniversary! We normally have such good images associated with anniversaries, this just seems a bit odd in comparison.

Having no clue at first as to what to do and how to deal with it, I seriously thought about going away for the weekend. In the end, I decided that I didn't want to go away as to me, it seemed like running away from it. Rather, I decided that I wanted to spend it with my family and friends. Well, at least those family and friends that also want to spend it with me!

So, on the 9th of December, at around 3pm, folk are going to be gathering at home for afternoon drinks and B.B.Q. Once the sun has set, we'll fire up the surround sound and projector to watch Mark's all time favourite movie, Top Gun on the big screen outdoors! Couldn't get any better than that!

I agree, I don't think it could get any better than that. I love that movie too. It's an opportunity to celebrate his life, that's how I look at an anniversary like that, if it makes any sense?

Yep, total sense. As that is what we will be doing! Celebrating a life well lived!
