Home Again, Home Again, Jiggerty Jig!!

Phew! what a week! Well the funeral went well? Can a funeral go well? It was really lovely to meet up again with my cousin S, I used to write to her when she was at Uni, she is godmother to Kathryn and now lives in Spain with her husband P and they have built there own house, we will be visiting soon I hope!

Mum was OK although I do think its made her realise just how fragile she is. Aunty M and her had been friends since they where 14!

Anyway a BIG bonus to going up is I got to see my lovely Great Niece again. What a character she is. My goodness her mum will have her hands full when she gets older.

We got back Sunday and yesterday K decided she wanted to go up to Uni, so we packed her up and off we toddled, so I spent the day helping her settle in. It was hard leaving her but I did and without tears too!!!!

The next pic is especially for K as she was particuarly worried about Sassy! She follows her round , runs to her when ever she hears her and is basically her shadow whilst she is home. When I went to bed Sassy was curled up on Kathryns empty pillow cases, so I picked them and her up and moved her across to Tori's room. She was still there in the morning when hubby went into wake T. I had seen her come in earlier so after everyone had left this morning, I went to see where she was

all curled up on Tori's bed!!!!!

Hi Libby, sorry to hear you were at a funeral. It's unfortunate it seems to be one of the few times we can reconnect with distant family. The little girl is gorgeous, she looks so cheeky!

It's nice to have you back! Your little great niece looks cute!

I'm glad that Sassy is alright, it's good to know that her little kitty heart is not broken!

BTW on Bliss we're going for a walk, if you wanna come too, wear sensible shoes! ;-)

Libby, welcome home.

I understand about the "funeral".
My mum left me a letter...saying no tears, so we did indeed celebrate her life at the funeral...afterwards people did say they did feel it was a "good funeral"

That was good.
A "Good" funeral I feel is a celebration of the person, not the quality of the ham sandwiches!

I'm glad to hear that your week went well, and that the funeral wasn't too stressful. Take care of your mum, she will probably miss Aunty a lot. We have had a sad weekend too, I've written in my blog about it.
