Just before lunch I got a phonecall to say my grandmother was fading fast and if I wanted to say goodbye I should hurry there straight away.
Tomorrow the Tour of Britain hits Birmingham and so road blocks and diversions have already started to be put in place, meaning it was a nightmare for me to get from the office to the main street.
I finally got a taxi but got stuck in the Friday traffic.
Then a bus broke down blocking the road.
Then there was roadworks causing more delays.
The taxidriver bless him drove like a kamikaze and after 50mins we pull up.
Sadly, nan had passed away a few minutes before.

Mom and Simon were already there, they'd only just arrived and they too were a minute too late.
In a selfish way I'm glad. It isn't nice to watch someone die, and after watching dad die in front of me I iknow it isn't always peaceful.
Gran knows we all loved her and did our best to be there and I can remember the last time I saw her alive which wasn't so upsetting.



Nan and Mom
