My father in law died unexpectedly during the night. It’s now 7am and I am just back from dropping my husband at the airport, neither of us having had much sleep. There is never a good time for these things but, with the dreaded prelims starting this week, I can’t just take off to Somerset in support like I would normally do; the cousins have mock A levels this week so it’s the same for them. The boys are still asleep so they don’t yet know that Grandad has gone. We will all miss him.
