Sad, and happy memories.......

Evening again, to all my lovely followers, hope you've all had a good week so far, and are now looking forward to the long weekend.

We have been up North this week for a family funeral.......my lovely sister-in-laws mam, Elsie,  died last week, at the grand old age of 101, she was quite a character.  Before we moved to Wiltshire, we had many great family gatherings at our house for various occasions.....My lovely mam and Elsie would have pride of place on their own sofa, sitting whispering, critisising and picking faults with everyone in the room.....they thought we couldn't hear them of course, but it made us laugh all the more....they were like a comedy double act!  I have so many happy memories of those times. My bro & sis-in-law have been married 50 years in September, so I've known Elsie for about 53 years.......RIP, a lovely lady  xx

 

Until tomorrow.......xx
