I never imagined myself in this position.

Stood in the toilets of a Liverpool hotel on Saturday night, taking a selfie to prove that actually, I am doing ok (despite what the eye bags tell you).

It’s not an event I ever thought I would attend, but there I was at the Widowed and Young AGM Dinner.

A room full of Widows and Widowers, all of who lost their loved ones when they were under the age of 50.

Not a room full of sad people, or people who are being held back by grief, but a room full of people who were taking life by the balls, and making the most of every moment they are blessed with.

A room of support, and of friendship.

I never wanted to go to an event like this, but my new found friends sure as hell made it an awesome place to be!
