Sorry we have not been here for a while...we have had a few difficult months, both our Mums passed away since I was last here .....my Mum went into hospital with chest infection on 24th April and due to other complications  she passed on the 11th May ..it was a terrible shock to us all cause she had been improving but was not strong enough in the end...we were starting to get back to some normality in June and went to Chicago on holiday on the 11th and  just over a week of the holiday we got a phone call to say Graham's Mum had passed so normality went out the window again.......It has been difficult, but we are grateful we had them for so long as lots of families do not...

We had something to celebrate yesterday when we attended Jacinta & Steve's wedding...it was a great day from start to finish (3am for us) Jacinta looked stunning as did Steve.. wonderful company,Lovely food ,plenty of drink.....great music and dancing ...it was just what the Dr ordered after all the sadness.....Thanks Jacinta and Steve.... 

We continue to add to the garden..  I am pleased with how it is looking right now despite the wind and rain.....I will do an Album as soon as I get out and take some photos.......Kate

It sure has been a really tough time for you both, Kate. Glad to have been a bit of a distraction, albeit a temporary one, after your recent sad times.

No hangover. Just millions of 'zzzzzzzz's to catch up on.

Kate, so sorry to hear of your loss and the loss of a mother is very hard to get over, it takes time. Glad that you enjoyed the wedding yesterday and best wishes to Jacinta and Steve for the future. Jacinta, Paddy showed me the gorgeous photo of yourself and David on FB today.
