    Oh that's so sad about your Nan. Big hugs GL.
    At least you have the next generation to focus on - and hopefully that'll keep your spirits up.

    Hello Lindsay, lovely to see you!
    :D
    Look forward to some poems - how about one that tells a tale of wandering Murray members?

    GL: your Gran died on your daughter's b-day? Awful when that happens. Tomorrow (27th August) is my eldest daughter's 12th b-day (and my brother's too) but sadly it marks the 4th anniversary of my niece's death. So, as you say, bittersweet indeed.

    27th (today) is my birthday. It was also my father-in-law's, and his mother-in-laws! Strange how it works out sometimes

    Happy b-day Jan! That's so funny how 27th Aug. is so prominent in both our families.

    Happy Birthday Jan and also to RoastLamb's daughter! Bittersweet day for you RL.x

    Jane, I'm sorry about your Uncle. It certainly has been a tough week for some of us. My Nan's funeral is this coming Friday, very proud of my 12 &13 yr old daughter & son who both said they wanted to come firstly to say goodbye to their Great Gran & secondly to hold my hand. I was touched. Despite the sadness last Wednesday, my little 5 yr old girl enjoyed her birthday, we waited till Thursday to explain. She had a wonderful party today with her friends.

    Happy that son and daughter-in-law, whose wedding anniversary it is today, are on the road to Scotland for their holiday in the Hebrides. First stop Perth, then ferry from Skye to Harris. Great to get regular updates with pic on fb.
    Happy that son and daughter-in-law have arrived safely on the Isle of Harris where they are happily settled in their bell tent in a stunning camp site. They arrived this afternoon and one of their pics showed chickens wandering into their tent.

    Thanks Linda. Funeral was yesterday. It was a lovely Mass followed by cremation. As the crematorium is close to where we live we did not travel back to parish club next to church for refreshments. Instead we went with some friends for lunch and had a lovely afternoon talking over old times.

    Hugs to everyone xx

    My Nan's funeral was on Friday and although it was a very sad occasion, it was wonderful to meet up with family members I hadn't seen for years. One cousin who I was very close to as a girl and teenager, I hadn't seen for 20 years and we hadn't expected her to come. I cannot tell you what it meant to me to see her standing outside the church waiting before the funeral. I am now in contact with her again and my Nan would have been so glad. It was a very emotional day.

    Aahh, hugs GL.Obviously it was sad saying goodbye to your Nan but so glad for you that you met up with family you hadn't seen for years, especially your cousin. I always think that when you say goodbye to an older person, although the service and burial/cremation are emotional and sad afterwards the mood changes. You greet old friends and relatives you haven't seen for a while. You tell stories about the departed loved one and, generally start to feel much better. Hope you are feeling better.

Yesterday met up with five ex pupils who were in my very first class with whom I have always kept in touch. One of them lives in Spain and was unable to be at my party last year. So when he told me he was coming over for a long weekend I organised a get-together. Luckily one who lives in Holland was over visiting her family so the famous five were together again. They are all 51 now but if you'd have seen us sitting around that large table in the pub you'd have sworn we were all much younger people as we couldn't stop laughing at tales from long ago. We were quite hysterical at times. Lovely to see them all again.

    Made me realise that I want out of this industry and at the very least want to work for myself and do contracts.

    Then I submitted my first piece to the sports desk linked to the journalism school thinking they would review it and tell me what I need to think about as a proper sports journo (as opposed to my self indulgent ramblings as a blogger).
    To my utter surprise is got published!!!

    Yeah - not bad seeing as I can't remember what the offside rule is... something to do with pepper pots and HP sauce I think...

    Re: What has made you happy or sad?

    So happy that my family were able to travel down to London this weekend to join in my husband's Nan's 90th Birthday! It was a very special occasion. Andy had a great weekend too and here we are in the Murray Mansion, lots to be happy about!

    Re: What has made you happy or sad?

    Good News: earlier in the year I was at the Boodles but the Friday schedule was rained off and I only saw Andy play 5 games! But I've received today a full refund and a guarantee of 2 tickets to the first day of the event next year!!!


    Bad News: 9 months to wait ........

    Re: What has made you happy or sad?

    Wow that's fab Sally!! I@m happy because I did pilates this morning without too many after effects so far (apart from using a lot of elbow grease to polish my halo!) and still can't believe we're actually here in the Mansion. My excitement in following Andy has been revitalised + the win in Bangkok. What more could a person want?
