Good Friday, Sad Friday

We just had news this morning that my husband's Grandma passed away at 12.10am, so we are sad today. I have always looked on his Grandma as my grandma too because I have known her since 1985 and she treated me like her own Grandaughter, so yes I am sad that she is no longer with us.  She has suffered in the last 12 months after falling and having many strokes and when we visited her up in Newcastle 3 weeks ago, she was mainly sleeping and totally unaware that we were there. But at 93 years old, she has lived her life to the full and is now no longer suffering so we are all grateful for her pain to have left her. We shall all miss her lots.

I am supposed to be spending today preparing for my demo tomorrow and Monday, but my heart isn't quite in it today after news of Grandma, so maybe I will just relax and think this morning then may feel like crafting after lunch. I will just see.....

I hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and I hope to be back on here later maybe with a card or two.
Happy Easter! x

So sorry to hear your news Sheila, but glad you both managed to see her one last time before she died.
I know she was sleeping but I am sure in my heart that she would have felt you there.
Pass on my condolences to Richard, I will be thinking of you both.
Best of love Irene xxx
