Here I am 7 years on from losing Sadie. We have gone on to have more children: Patrick, now 6 and Abigail, now 2. 

Life is is full and busy and happy. The truth is that the grief is still there. Just the same but I manage it better. Well mostly. I’m no different to any of the other bereaved parents I’ve met and been in touch with - we all learn to live with it in our own ways. 

Next week I’m lucky enough to be climbing Kilimanjaro with 4 friends, 3 of whom are raising money for the Lullaby Trust. We are Louis’ Lullaby Ladies and we’re raising in money of my friend Caz’s son who died from SIDS.
