Kjære Morfar || Dear Grandad

A month ago today I got the terrible news that my grandad had passed away, he had just turned 66 in February and didn't have any major medical issues that was life threatening. You can imagine how shocked we all were when we learned about the passing because it was so unexpected - he was so young!

After moving to England almost 5 years ago, I haven't been able to go home to see my family as much as I'd liked to, and in the beginning I kept everyone at home updated through my Norwegian blog. But after my mom learned how to use Skype and Messenger I stopped blogging as I didn't see the point of it, and I didn't enjoy it as much anymore. I've always kind of known that my grandad looked up my blog every now and then to keep updated on me as that was the way we communicated, but it wasn't until going home for his funeral that I was told, and realised myself, how much the few little updates on my blog meant to him. And ever since then I've been thinking of starting again, I feel like it's a way for me to share my life with my grandad.

I guess after losing someone who's close to you, you think of these little things that you have never realised or thought of before.

Grandad, this blog is for you
