A new beginning

Friday... I managed to make my page for colour me positive 


Then Saturday we had some summer weather....I spent time in the garden....worried about my dad who got carted off to hospital at lunchtime .....

Sunday morning I called the hospital & was fortunate enough to be able to speak with the duty doctor....
The news was not good!

A couple of hours later I had my fears confirmed- dad had slipped away to join my mum, 2 years & 2 days apart...he missed her so....today is Mother's Day in France so I'll have to forgive her for calling him to her side.....

Needless to say, no art has been done! I'm heading to France & hoping the strikes don't play havoc with my travel plans.

My inchie is made & I shall leave you with this last item....


I'll see you when I see you, I'll be off grid for about a week once I'm over there so forgive me for any lack of commenting.

  8. Thanks Trace, my dad was a Newark boy, athletics & Rugby were his passion so my aunt is putting a small obituary in the Newark Advertiser this week to let his old friends know (Kenneth Ogden). I just can't believe he's really gone :-(
