  • Not around today.

    Hi - mother-in-law's funeral and thanksgiving service today, so won't be around. That means I will not be posting on the advent calendar for the first time so far - just as well as I haven't got a christmas cake on my cards and I was trying to keep to using my card designs.

    Have a good day one and all.

        I hope that the day went well. I am very sure that it wasn't easy.

        Have a nice long soak in the bath tonight and try and relax. (i'll bring cake when I next see you!)

            Cynthia, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that all goes well for you today. I can't be there with you in person unfortunately but am there in spirit ((hugs)).

            It was my grandads funeral about 2 and a half weeks ago and it was SO hard so I do understand some of what you are going through. Please know that if you need someone to talk to or a shoulder to lean on, I am here for you always.

            Take care of yourself and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time ((hugs)).

              Thank you all for your very very kind thoughts. It is so good to have that support. The day went well (if you can describe it that way) and the service at the crematorium and the thanksgiving service were both beautiful services. My nephew and niece read one at each service (as well as my husband) and I know that their granny would have been so proud of their composure at such a difficult time - they are 21 and 18 and loved their granny to pieces. We were exhausted last night but felt that we had carried out mother-in-law's wishes in a way that she would have approved of.

                  So glad the service and funeral went well, I know they are never easy at all and i'm so sorry you had to go through all of this ((hugs)).

                  Hopefully now you are able to try and move on and think of all of the good memories you and your mother-in-law had together.

                  You are in my thoughts as you are going through all of this and if you ever need someone to talk to or a shoulder to lean on, please know that I am here for you always.
