Today is Saturday 17th April

Today marks the funeral of Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, a sad time for our Queen, The Royal Family, and the nation.
We shall be watching on an internet live feed and paying our respects to a man Hubby met years ago when he was in the forces, a man he liked immensely as they supped tea in pint mugs, ate sardine sandwiches and laughed together at an impromptu and unofficial break during his visit to the base.

Speculation, individual interpretations and rumours will be rife on a day when a grieving family are thrust into the public eye because of the position they hold. Our thoughts are with them.

RIP Sir.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Lovely post Di, great memories for hubby. I am glad he got exactly what he wanted for his funeral. He was always joking about having to walk 3 paces behind his wife well today he gets centre stage πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

    Of all the Royal family, I think I liked him best… possibly because he was not often in the media crosshairs.

  4. It was dignified and beautiful I thought.

  5. He sounds like a great gentleman in the true sense of the word. So few of them left too. My condolences to you & your hubby on what must be a very sad day!

    • Thanks Melanie. It was a lovely and fitting service, all about The Duke and his dedication. Our Queen looked so small and frail. My heart went out to her.
