3 weeks and 3 days goes by so fast... R.I.P dad

Ok so big apologies for the lack of blogging this month (ok ok this year) March 1 rolled around and I had a good long look at myself in the mirror and muttered something along the lines of 'Sophie your blogging efforts have been nothing short of hopeless - Sought your shit out' and for 4 days I did just that, I blogged every evening for 4 days straight I was back on a roll again people and life was good...

Then on March 10 my dad died. It was very unexpected. He was happy and healthy and living in spain... I was due to visit him in July, something we have both been looking fwd to for a long time.

Its now been 3 weeks and 3 days since I got the phone call that literally changed my life, shifted my entire centre and while its been tough I know my dad more than anyone would want me to get back on the writing band wagon. He was right into all things tech. We had a Mac computer in 1985, long before they became all trendy and cool. The screen was black the writing was green and at age 3 I would sit on his lap and he would let me press the enter button. We were the first family on our street to get the internet and my dad had me on the waiting list for a ipod 9 months before the first one hit australian stores.

He is the one who made me get facebook, then google chat and skpe, hell he even tweeted 9 minutes (yes minutes) before he died and if it wasnt for him I wouldnt know half of what I do about computers (and life for that matter)

So with that in mind, dad - this ones for you. All my love. Soph x
