I have been a bad bad blogger.
Our weekend was kind of sucky. Mick spent most of the weekend searching for a friend of his from work that went missing last Thursday. They found Neil's body late Saturday afternoon, but as you can imagine it was a pretty awful time. I actually am finding it hard to deal with how much it has affected me, so I cannot even begin to imagine how difficult this is for Mick and the boys, not to mention Neil's family. Neils death has really rocked the QPWS 'family'.
It has brought home to me how dangerous Mick's job can be. Neil knew that bush that he was walking in like the back of his hand. He had every piece of safety equipment available. He had followed all the safety protocols like calling in and having his staff on alert. He was checking in regularly with them. He was fit and healthy. I think I am really just feeling so so scared, and so so sad for Neil's family. Please if you could spare a prayer for Neils wife and children I am sure it would be much appreciated.
So there is a reason I haven't been around...not just sheer slackness...(although with me, slackness always plays a part!)
