We finally laid my mum to rest last Friday- 24th July. It was a lovely service and burial- there were tears but also smiles at happy memories. I will write a little more below and add some photos - I hope that is ok Julia?
So to my desk/aka dining table. I had to clear the table and pack away a lot of stuff as needed table free.
Anyway I started to put my things back ( yesterday ) and I hope I will get back into crafting - it has been plus five weeks since I last did any crafting.
So here we go
My space tonight (Tuesday)
I have put out my mat, tools etc - the two cards were made ages ago and I need a couple to send now.
So not a lot to see at the moment. Hopefully be a bit more interesting next week.
I will be visiting as many as I can tomorrow - see what you've all been up to.
We were only allowed to have 15 in the Chapel. However our younger son was able to stand at the back - I was so pleased. He had done so much to help me before hand, without his intervention I think I would have 'gone under'
Our eldest read a poem ( The Fifth Season by C.A.Schlea) on my behalf and although we were not allowed to sing there was some beautiful music included.
After Mum's funeral we came back to my house. Only my immediate family - ten of us - we could not all get together because of current situation.
Our grandchildren did not attend the funeral but joined us afterwards. Jonathan ( younger son) had suggested an Afternoon Tea - a lovely idea and mum would have enjoyed it so much. we were able to sit outside - which given the current situation was a blessing.
My lovely friend prepared and delivered the food whilst we were at the service. I used some of mum's pretty plates as well.
Our eldest son, Matthew and family stayed until Sunday morning for which I was so grateful. Jonathan and family had left on Saturday for a week in Wales.
Some of mum's great grandchildren painted some stones to place on the grave
These two were done by my granddaughters
My Mum - Marjorie Eunice Harvey
Bless you Mum
