August 28th

Wednesday would have been Hugh's thirty fourth birthday. As it was, it was the fourth anniversary of his funeral and it was also the day we had arranged to meet up with Claire to take Paul out for the afternoon. Choice of film was 'Despicable Me 2'. (It says much either for my ageing memory or for the quality of 'Despicable Me 1' that I remembered not a thing about it!)

However, we all enjoyed this one and, of course, Paul made a beeline for the mini arcade straight afterwards.  
Claire was going to Liverpool afterwards and made time to visit Another Place at Crosby Beach, where  Hugh's ashes are scattered. She had talked of letting off balloons but wasn't able to get helium filled ones, so this was the next best thing. Very effective, I think.

Hugh would definitely have approved!

I think that Anthony Gormley would also have approved if he knew the story that led to those balloons being tied there.

Indeed, YP. I hadn't thought of that. :)

Now six years have passed since Hugh departed
What has become of the broken-hearted?
