Formal 2016






'And then she was gone. With hardly a backward glance and a spring in her step...'

How Did That Happen?






Day One of Primary School


This gorgeous little being somehow got herself all grown up and is now winging her way into the wide blue yonder in search of a bit of culture to celebrate the end of year 12.



How did that happen?

Not Happy Jan..



The Silver Fox has this fettish at the moment for Greek salad, morning, noon and night. So, he frequently rings me on my way home from work to ask me to buy him about 9 cucumbers on my way home.

I get cross with him

Why?

I feel weird buying that many cucumbers

I feel like a weirdo

I can hear them thinking 'what is she going to do with so many cucumbers?'

Yes indeed.

AND he wants the extra long ones too

He is giving me a bad name i reckon



Ciao for now...

just See You Later...



Well, this lovely lady has gone to heaven. She was peacefully and relaxed. Her bed was immaculate and her brow calm. Even her hair was perfection.

She would have liked that

Gorgeous Being...





It has been many years now since this gorgeous lady entered the twilight zone. She is now slowly fading away.

There are no winners with dementia. Not family watching from the outside nor the person living more and more on the inside.

Even though it has been a slow process, watching the footprints fade back into the sand until they are gone is hard. It is harder than I thought it would be.

Unlike footprints though that leave no trace, she has had 3 children who themselves have lovely families. Now we are parents, we totally appreciate the effort she put in and the wonderful memories, traditions and occasions enjoyed. We see with adult eyes.

Now we are parents it is too late to tell her how wonderful she was as a Mummy, how much we know she gave to us. I hope she knows and although we do tell her now, it is kind of too late.

Just thought you might want to know


Ciao for now
