My Dad has long since loved my blog, I did a special blog for him for Father's Day which he printed off and carried around in his pocket for weeks. Sadly he was taken suddenly ill and died a couple of days later. That was 2 weeks ago today. He was the most incredible person and the 300 or so people at his Funeral spoke volumes. I did the Eulogy and surprised myself at my inner strength.
In the middle of all that my 3 year old Daughter was ill with croup and one night was really struggling to breathe so ended up in hospital where they gave her twice as much steroids as she needed as the weighed her incorrectly in A&E. (She's fine now)
So I have the unenviable job of unravelling my Dad's estate and sorting his house out which is 200 miles from mine. Yesterday I made a start and got a start when first the hoover blew up (flames and everything) and then I found my Mum's ashes (she died 6 years ago and Dad said he had scattered them)in a wardrobe with about 500 LP's!
Meanwhile at home we have had some lovely moments like this one with the children helping to prepare lunch. Tom the middlie would have sprouts at every meal if he could!!
And Dottie Designs.........well the orders have kept me steadily busy and I have my first outing (having cancelled all the previous ones) at Ditcham Park school this Saturday. As I have nothing prepared yet to sell, I have a busy few days ahead of me.
Bring on December it can only be better :)
