This is nothing to do with our beautiful red roses, but something else to treasure and remind us of departed loved ones.
It’s hard to believe it’s two years ago that our neighbour’s husband passed away and it has been a very difficult time for her.
There is a lady who lives just a few miles away who makes teddy bears from the clothes of those who have passed at a reasonable cost.
This is not a novel idea as I have been aware of it for years and think it is rather lovely.
With my neighbour’s permission, this is the bear she had made from a pair of her husband’s jeans and one of his favourite shirts. She has been a little teary today, but is really pleased with it.
Isn’t he beautiful?
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!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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 idea 💙

She loves it, but is still a little teary which is understandable.
