I can now reveal all

Well the secret can now be revealed, my husband was invited to attend the Royal Garden Party for 25 yrs service to the NHS and obviously I had to tag along.  All I can say is it is a truly surreal experience, but one you should certainly take the opportunity to experience if you get the chance.

Andrew's grandparents and parents were very proud of him for receiving the honour. Sadly tho, Granda passed away within an hour of us returning home, so there is a sadness as well to the whole affair.

All in all a day we will never forget.

Thanks to all who have sent their condolences already, and thanks for all the well wishes.

I work in the NHS as a cleaner, by near end of this year I will have clocked up 10 years, and hope to be there many more.

Deepest sympathy in your loss are sent your way. x
