So not only do we lose David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey and Dale Griffin, we've now lost Terry Wogan. Goodbye January 2016, you really sucked and you will not be missed.

I meant to update my LJ last weekend but my granddad was taken into hospital and we spent the week waiting for news. My parents just phoned me and told me that he died peacefully this morning. It's good, because he wasn't really him any more; Alzheimer's had gradually eroded the man I grew up with and he was practically housebound, which for a man who'd always enjoyed his sport was akin to torture. So I'm glad he's not suffering any more, but I'm still sad. Although he was a selfish man, he was always loving and kind towards me and until my cousin Jack was born, I was his favourite grandchild. My dad's father died when he was 11 so my granddad was the only grandfather I had growing up (but I had 3 grandmothers - my mother's mother, my mother's stepmother and my father's mother) and now I won't have that again (unless I find a partner with a living grandparent).

I'm postponing my life update for a little while but I will be back.

My nana died yesterday at five past eight in the evening. At least it was peaceful and I saw her. The funeral is next Thursday, so I'll miss two classes, but that's it. And my laptop decided to die when my father was setting it up in my room, so he had to take it back. I wouldn't mind so much if I didn't want to get my commentary done and dusted so I can start on my essay.
