Good Morning Ladies,
Today will be a very long and emotional day for us, we are making the 360 round trip to Essex to go to Mum's to choose her 'outfit' for her final journey, we are going to sort through some of the vast amount of poorly filed paperwork, we used to laugh at Dad as he hardly ever opened mail, Mum laughed too, it appears that she decided to follow his thinking. So goodness knows what we will discover, I know that she was almost paranoid about paying bills so I know for sure that the Gas & Electric are very much in credit. There are very few other bills to sort out apart from TV Licence, Council tax etc.
I love seeing the important nostalgic pieces of paper, Birth certificate, their Marriage Certificate too showing that they were just 17 & 18 when they were married, so young! I'm not convinced that 17 & 18 year olds today could run a home and raise a family.
We have to go to the Funeral Directors to set a date for Mum's funeral and organise the arrangements, fortunately she left details of her wishes with her solicitor which makes some of the tougher choices easier.
Hopefully all will go straightforward!
Today's card is perfect for this weeks challenge as it is totally flat/1 layer.
Sue used her Groovi plates to create this stunning card, the design was by Ronk Langton at the Groovi class that Sue Pat and I used to go to.
Sue made the brilliant decision to mount hers on an Octagonal card base, using layers of Green card, that works beautifully.
I absolutely love my card Sue, thank you so much for the beautiful gift, I will treasure your work always XXX
I believe that today is the last day of this unseasonably good weather, so enjoy it ladies.
Love and hugs to all,
