It was my intention to come home tonight and write up a post about my card swap cards for this month. It would have been a post about how I couldn't think of any half decent ideas for the theme (men are always really hard to make cards for), and then about how the theme that I had chosen didn't really come together. Then there was the part about how hard it is to stamp on vellum and just generally how the card was really hard work.
That post will probably still happen in the next few days, but to be honest, this minor issue has been put into a more realistic perspective today. This morning one of my work colleagues was killed in a motorcycle accident. He was someone who I dealt with regularly in the course of my role, and I am, well, I guess shell shocked is the best description I can give. There will be many more people who were closer to him, friends, family, wife and daughters who will be feeling this sudden loss so much more than I can even begin to fathom.
Rest peacefully my friend.
