A 2014 Update

Where did the first few months of 2014 go??

I am now 'retired' since 31/3/2014 but not had much chance to enjoy it yet. I got a nasty virus on Good Friday which started off as an exceptionally heavy cold then just went on and on, and gave me a chest infection. The virus lasted so long it was only last Friday that I could say I was officially better. It left me so weak I could only walk a few hundred yards and then I had to go home, so Alan has been looking after everything.

Then out of the blue on May 1st Alan's Mum died of 'natural causes' at the ago of 90. It was such a shock to us all and we just had to get on with clearing her sheltered accommodation flat, so I literally sat at the table in my weak state and directed stuff to different bags.

Pat was a lovely lady, always happy to see you and with a wicked sense of humour, she will be sorely missed by all of the family. 

I cannot believe how much stuff she had in her tiny little bedsit !! We had the funeral on the 16th and it was a beautiful service on a beautiful day, the sun shines on the righteous.......................

I have added a proud picture of my grandson who is now 8.5 months and a bundle of joy.
He is the image of his Dad and the happiest little chap you could know

Hello Sweetie. Goodness! I hope you're feeling a lot better now. I'm sorry to hear about Alan's Mum but what a nice way to go.
I've not seen the L A bags, don't get out much these days, too busy felting, lol.
Well now you're a lady of leisure do you have any plans for the future or are you just taking each day as it comes?...Or are you chief babysitter! lol x
