Now, I know Rosie’s bedroom was always massively untidy, but I wasn’t expecting this to continue with her grave. Honestly -
-just a minute, there’s screaming coming from Sylv’s room . . . . . . . . . . . oh it’s Chris showing her a dead maybug. She isn’t impressed.
anyway, as I was saying, honestly, we turn our backs for one weekend and Rosie’s grave is a nightmare of tall grass, dead flowers and general untidyness. We still haven’t turned our thoughts to her headstone really, and that would make a big difference. I think we might be a bit daunted because whatever you put up is there for a long time. And we have to do her justice.
We shall tidy it up later in the week before we go away – I’ve got a plan come the autumn for different flowers to be sown there so it changes by the seasons, but I wanted to see what it was like during the year first.
Thanks for your flying reassurances. I can cope with really rough ferries, no problem, as long as I can pace around. Ear plugs is a good idea though cos it is those changes in engine note, bing bong noises and general clunks which add to the discomfort. Cal loves flying but he makes cheering noises if the plane is a bit shaky as it comes into land, which is a) quite amusing but b) draws attention to it.
Oh, and welcome back to England, Mags!
