It will be my partners birthday on friday and the first since we lost him. I’m on annual leave this week, and the plan is not to plan and just go with the flow. Im already feeling the enormity of this week though. I already had this week off before he passed, but i dont know whether the distraction of work may have been the better idea, but then i know i wouldnt be able to focus.


I feel for you. Would they be surprised if you couldn’t focus at work? Could you cancel your leave and go in, instead?
As you say, go with the flow and do whatever you feel like. I’m sure people will understand, after all what we’re all going through is a really massive, big deal, remember. X
