yesterday would of been MiL birthday and would of been 78 sadly in september will be 10 years since she died such a waste and she never got to see two of her grandchildren, tiddlers got her name as her middle name.
Today would of been her mums birthday and she would be 105, she did get to see all her gt grandchildren as we were all together for her 100th, November will be 5 years since she died

Hubby and laddo have contnued the family tradition as father is 23rd of June and son 22nd of same month same as his mum and gran ecept theres was july so spooky that it came up again but at least it meant I could easily remember the birthdays.

Still miss the phone going and mum saying its only me and popping up to their bungalow for cups of tea. And miss his grans blunt way of saying what she thought a true Devonian, when she saw our wedding photos she decided that it was time for a wig as she looked bald. Have a lovely picture of her with eldest eating an ice cream on the moors

Hubby was upset with himself last night as he hadnt remembered his mums birthday and said he was so bad for forgetting, mind you he never remembered them when there were alive was always me that sorted the cards etc lol
