Yesterday, and today

Yesterday friends and family gathered to say goodbye, and also to remember together.

Yesterday the celebration of her life took place, with the appreciation we wrote, the photos we chose, the people we invited, the pub we selected, the food we ordered, the cakes we baked, the flowers we arranged.

Yesterday we were together.  We cried together and we laughed together.

Yesterday we shared stories, anecdotes, good food and good company.

Yesterday was the funeral.  She would have heartily approved of all of it, and been proud of us (as she always was).

One last good laugh – Peggy Mitchell’s funeral gathering at the Vic (pub).  And no, we didn’t finish it off by telling everyone to “gerrr outa my pub”!  But she would definitely have seen the funny side if we had.

And today?  today is about life going on.  As it does.  And rightly so.



Cheers Peg!

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
