Lonely day

It’s the 13th June and it’s our birthday, so I’m lonely.  I’m four human years old today and George would have been four too.  We’ve always celebrated it together and Mummy’s usually made a cake and decorated our cage and we’ve had a lovely time together.

Mummy still decorated the cage and made me a cake (and some for the others to share too).  It was very nice and I particularly liked the nice herbs decorating it.  Then after I had a nap Mummy came in with a present.  Well, it was a bit of a surprise and I was quite taken aback.  It was a lovely picture of George that the man in the red van brought to the door.  I heard him knock but I didn’t think it might be for me.  Well, I think it’s for both Mummy and me really.  She’s missing George a lot today too.

This is me and my cake:

And of course Mummy wouldnt leave the candles on as they arent edible, so she took them off and gave a little to the others, and let me get on with it.

And then I sat and thought about the good times George and I had.  This was the last photo of the two of us together.  I think it’s a lovely photo.  It was taken on the 1st May, just a couple of days before his teeth went wrong again.  He was enjoying this hay cake!!

One thought on “Lonely day

    Oh, Freddie. It’s so hard, isn’t it? I know what you’re going through. A big part of me died when Mariusz passed, and I just feel so empty.

    I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything better for you. I wish I could make George come back.

    Well-intentioned people say things like, “It’ll get better,” or “You’ll always have the memories.” I’m skeptical. I’ll always be sad over Mariusz, and I don’t want just the memories — I want Mariusz back! You must feel the same about your brother.

    Still, I think we have to try appreciate what we have, and go on for those around us. You’ve got Da Boyz and Mummy — all in all, a pretty wonderful family. You even have a crazy American Auntie! Not many piggies can say that.

    George is with you, I’m sure of it. You may not be able to see him, but he’s there, taking a nibble out of his cake. He wants to you be the best, and happiest, Philosopher you can be — until the two of you meet again (not for a while yet).

    Happy birthday, Fred and George. Love you both.
    Auntie Dawn

    PS — I love the Look you’re giving Mummy in the last photo. “What? The camera again?”
