Thank you xx

Thank you for all your lovely messages on my last post - means a lot that so many people have taken the time to comment. I thought I would reply to your all individually but the list has got rather longer than I could ever cope with and I didn't want to miss anyone out.

I thought I would give up blogging until after the funeral but after a family chat over the weekend, we've decided to keep things as 'normal' as possible - meaning the boys will be out doing their hobbies this week (2/3 of the menfolk are at band practise tonight), MrVV has to keep working (downside of being your own boss) and the same goes for my BIL & his family - MIL agrees that this is the best way. Therefore as blogging is one of my hobbies I ought to carry on with it.

The boys had a home day on Friday which I think they benefited from - despite their often differences and arguments, they are really good friends and they were support for each other and company for me that day, as MrVV was out from very early.

Most of the weekend has just gone past in a whirl of phone calls, decisions to be made and the usual stuff that needs doing each weekend. I've started knitting another 'thing' to be felted - will probably end up as a purse for me. The first one was given to one of my sisters over the weekend and she was thrilled with it.

One thing I did notice tonight - is was still almost light @ 5pm - add that to the green shoots and snowdrops that are growing fast in my borders and you can really feel that spring is in the air - or just a tiny hint of it. I never got round to doing the RSPB Garden Bird survey over the weekend but spent a little time today watching the comings and goings of my feathered visitors - definite increase in activity and by the looks of it, early nest building is happening too.

See you soon

Hi Vicki,

So sorry to hear of your loss. Sending cyber (((hugs))).

It sounds that you are all pulling together at this sad time for you all. And there is always a small amount of comfort in that.

Take care.
