In complete contrast...

After a weekend like that last one, it would be too easy to moan about the first day of the week back at work, but I arrived home tonight to some seriously bad news and I apologise in advance as it will also come as a shock to many of the regular visitors here.

Mum received a call earlier today to tell her that our dear friend Paul died this morning. We don't know much detail right now but his partner Terry had wanted to let her know as soon as possible as the three of them had planned to meet up for a couple of Christmas drinks tomorrow afternoon.

I never find these situations particularly easy to deal with, but this is all the more shocking as it's not that long since we bumped into him in town and were laughing and joking with the typically extrovert character that I've known for 20 years or more.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Terry who I know will be devastated. Paul will be sorely missed by the huge circle of friends he's built up in the town over the years but I guess we can take a little comfort in the fact that a certain Mr Mercury is about to be re-united with one of his biggest fans...

Ignore that Seany...my face is burning with embarrassment.
Pass my condolences on to Terry and I shall go and bang some sense into my empty head.
I am a twat.
