Another year

I’ve had this blog for eight months now. It’s had 57,000 hits in that time, and 3,900 comments … probably not bad for a one-person blog. I enjoy blogging, and it has provided a platform for posting thoughts and images concerning Sean, so I’m glad of that.

We had a good Christmas and New Year, although of course we missed Sean very much. Pauline and I had our first alcohol-free night in a fortnight or so last night, and feel much better for it. We intend to make positive changes in our lives in 2011.

I’ll continue to write about Sean and his life, likes and loves here. One of his friends wrote on Facebook this morning: ‘I’m very grateful for all he taught me in his life, which is a lot more than he would think.’

I wish everyone that reads this blog a happy and fulfilling 2011.

  1. I’m happy to see you, you make your way out of gloom Brendan.
    I too wish you and your family a fruitful 2011.

  2. Happy New Year to you and your family, Brendan. Good to know you are facing the future positively. I hope your plans to provide a fitting permanent exhibition/memorial of Sean can proceed this year.

    • Hello Jan, and thank you. Positive is the only way to be … there is no advantage to anyone in being negative or miserable. I was speaking to a woman this morning who is in a similar situation except that she lost her husband as well as a son. She is a very positive person.

      Yes, we will certainly be following up that plan.

      Happy New Year!

  7. Brendano – I look forward to hearing from you throughout 2011. I will also refresh you with accounts from London life, and the return of my wife and Kojo from Ghana at the end of January. I will e-mail you a few Ghana pictures when I receive them.
