A cloudy overcast sky this morning
While Tim waited for Sebastian to arrive he got ready for his town trip.
Then he and Azzan went down to the wharf to condition mussel ropes.
This is the last photo I have of my Timmy.
And he is doing what he loved.
Working with his kids.
After this he and Seb went out to do some mussel work for a few hours.
The girls processed 2 bins of tomatoes.
Then they spent the rest of their working day in the garden.
Anson was mustering most of the day.
Tim arrived back at lunch time and packed up the Safari and took Seb & Phoebe back home and then headed off to town around 2:30pm.
We had a date to meet in town at 2pm tomorrow.
I was really tired so had a wee rest before Anson & Marah popped in for a visit.
We had an early dinner and got cleaned up.
I was just about to start packing my stuff for town as we are leaving early tomorrow when I got a text from Anson saying he had just heard there had been an accident on our road.
I immediately started making phone calls and couldn’t locate Tim anywhere he was supposed to have been.
After a very long call to the police and then finding out I was talking to Wellngton Police and they didn’t have a clue where we were they finally put me on to a Blenheim sergent who knew exactly who I was and confirmed my worst nightmare.
He had been trying to locate a neighbour to come tell me but as our neighbours are about an hour away they hadnt arrived yet.
He didn’t want to tell me over the phone
I was furious, angry, upset, hurt, hysterical……
It took 6 hours for me to find out and that was through the newspaper.
My Timmy is dead.
I can barely see the keys to type
I can’t stop crying.
I don’t know what I am going to do without him
I am so devastated.
Anson & Marah and Seb & Phoebe came straight round and started phoning the kids.
It is the worst news to have to tell your children.
Liz, Harry & Jude all arrived – it was really good to have their loving support.
The three young ones have been beside themselves all night.
They are now sleeping thankfully and the boys and partners have gone home.
I now have to rethink the morning and repack my bags as I will have to be in town for more than the two planned days.
