Can you believe over a 100 messages of love and support and they have really lifted me. Thank you. My Mum wants me to make a book of condolences with the cards that we have received and also wants me to print out all of the messages you have left.
Funeral is 21st December, it sounds like Dad is going to have a lot of people there to send him off. Nothing grand, my Dad thought that a waste of money, only one flower display from Mum, my brother and Me, he thought flowers a dreadful waste and instead we are collecting for Alzheimers. His Mum died of this, its a terrible disease. I have been in charge of the order of service design and I also set up a website in memory of and which is linked to the Alzheimers Charity so people can make direct credit card donations on behalf of Dad. I also have written a very short poem to read out, nothing great but a little ditty, just like my Dad used to write for us. I will share it with you all after 21st.
I am sure much of you are aware with greaving and how one day is an up day, one day is a down day. Things remind you of them all the time and I still cant really believe its really happening!
I need to get to picking up a stamp, Dad wouldnt have wanted me to stop stamping and I dont, but its early days yet. I said I would stamp my card for the flowers, didnt feel right to use a shop one and now I am panicing about what I can do!!
I have a stack of Magnolias I have received recently, like over 12 of them! I also have some adorable Sugar Nellies on route (the new maggie ones) and a few nellies already here including the fab rock star one from my Sugar Shaker reward! Thanks Karen!! :) Some fab Stampin Up! stuff too.... so I have my hands full of beautiful stuff, just no mojo right now.
