Last week was a difficult week, so apologies for my silence. We lost a very good friend to cancer in August and it was his funeral on Friday. I was struggling a lot with this. He was a beautiful person inside and out and it has really broken my heart to lose him.

His service was lovely and he couldn’t have had a better send off, but I have had to take some time off to come to terms with losing him. So apologies if you are waiting to hear regarding a pet portrait enquiry I am endeavouring to get back to everyone within the next 24 hours. I am still exhausted from it all, but it is time to remember the good things and fond memories we have of Tony. It is hard, but time is a great healer and I know it will happen.

RIP Tony
