The last few months have been a mixed bag for me and my family. We've lost a much loved and much missed member of our family unit, nan. At ninety years young, time finally caught up with her and she slipped away in her sleep after a few bouts of hospitalisation. We'd had a really special afternoon with her 3 weeks before she passed. We sat round drinking tea, eating cake and biscuits and just chatted about her life, what she'd done at school, work and during the war, about her mother and how she coped as a single parent. She passed the eve of the Royal Wedding, she would have loved to watch that. She loved the pomp and circumstance. I saw my nan at least once a week for my entire life unless I was on holiday, she had a collection of dire souvenirs as memories from such trips! She also had a head strong will that could not be shifted once she had made a discussion, good or bad. I've stop bursting into tears at anything and everything and life has started to move on.
Mum has moved into a lovely new flat for the over 55's (how did we get there!) I'm a little jealous as it has a lovely balcony, so no grass to cut or slugs and snails to cope with!
I've been to a lovely wedding in London, the reception was held at the RIBA (Royal institute of British Architects) building in Portland Square in central London, a beautiful day to celebrate a lovely couple uniting together.
I've also started crafted again, so things are getting better.
