    Good morning Snapper
    so sorry the sight of your Mum in the chapel was not a good one, I only saw John and my mum just after they had died and before the funeral directors took them away both looked at peace at that moment.

    So sorry that you had a tough experience at the chapel Elaine.
    I’m with Mary , I only saw my parents just after they passed away. I didn’t even go to see
    my brother or sister. I would rather remember them as they were.
    Being with your brother in law today, will give you something else to think about.
    (((( hugs )))).

    I saw this photo on a Sainsbury’s advert recently and thought the little girl reminded me
    of Miss A when she smiles. Well let’s be honest, when does she ever stop smiling
    The orange would have done for last month too.
    What do you think Elaine.

    Aw Ellie, that is a lovely picture and she does have a Miss A grin

    Elaine, sorry it was tough, don’t think I could do it.
    I’m remembering the good times now, like I plan to visit mums grave on the good days like her birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, I don’t plan to go down this month, the anniversary of her death
    It’s lovely that the grandchildren have such good memories of your mum Elaine, certainly sounds like she did a lot in her time


    It’s amazing that you have made that big step to go away on your own too Mary, it must have been hard, but as Ellie said, you did it x

    Morning snappers (just) Elaine, sorry you had a bad experience at the chapel of rest - I saw Paul just after he passed, and he looked like he was asleep. I didn't see either of my parents. Mary, that LO is so lovely and very poignant a lovely tribute to John. I don't know if I could face going on holiday alone yet - which is why I take the opportunity to go with other people, so I do at least get away. I am going to try and do some scrapping today - wish me luck!!!

    I love that Sainsbury's advert Ellie, they look so cute. Great lines photo's too.

    I'll have to go back and read through the posts although the Chapel of Rest is always a tricky one. Hubby will never go, I have to go and my sister came with me to see mum and dad or she wouldn't normally go. We wrote letters to them and laid them in the coffin with them. Even though we'd said everything we wanted to when they were alive we still said our final goodbyes and thanked them for everything in the letters and told them again how much we loved them; it made us feel better.

    I have had some very mixed reactions at the Chapel of Rest, always deep sadness, but also from horror to laughter which sounds awful but taken in context with what was going on at the time is not unreasonable. I think a lot of it is how grief makes you react and you can react in many different ways and sometimes it feels inappropriate but I think it is a touch of nerves and possibly hysteria on one occasion. That's why I always think it is wrong to say there are stages of grief, because we all grieve is different ways and it takes some longer to go through this 'process'.

    Sheila, you may or may not go off on holiday on your own, but it doesn't make you less strong for not being able to, it is just your way of grieving. If I lost hubby I think I would find it difficult to get out of bed and even put one foot in front of another but I imagine I would because what else can you do. We all have to remember to be kind to ourselves sometimes, not just to others.

    Wise words Susie.
    Forgot to say earlier, when I had migraines, I took Feverfew, but it really
    didn’t do anything. In the end I stopped taking anything, and just went with it.
    Fortunately as soon as the menopause finished, so did the migraines!!
    I feel for your DH, it can be really hard.

    I thought I was getting over this bug, but this afternoon I just feel whacked out again.
    So just been sat down, didn’t even contemplate crafting.
    Ellie

    Thank you Ellie and please do try to take it easy Ellie, those bugs really can wipe you out. Did you take your re-hydrating sachets, they are really good and always helped after hubby's migraines once he'd been sick, but of course he had to sip them slowly. The feverfew doesn't seem to work on hormonal migraines but the type he got they definitely work for, isn't it odd. They didn't work for my sister's hormonal migraines but since the menopause has gone she isn't troubled by them either. After hubby took the feverfew for a couple of years, I think it was at least 10 years before he had a migraine again. I have no idea how this stuff works, but it does work, but like anything else it won't work for everyone.

    Morning. Glad you were well enough to find a couple of photos Ellie. Take it easy though , it takes time to get fully back to normal.
    I only ever had one really bad migraine, it was when I was at uni, or just finishing, think it was the day after my final exams or my final teaching practice- I just lay down in a dark room all day, never had anything like it before !! Glad it was just the once.

    Here’s a pic I took of my girls yesterday, lots of short lines !

    I can’t take credit for it but here is a photo I have to share for the outdoor prompt that my friend took of last nights fireworks . She’s a keen amateur photographer and her work is awesome. More on my Facebook page.
    Pleased you’re feeling a little better Ellie.

    What a stunning photograph Elaine.

    Alison, that is just adorable, I'd love to hear what they're playing. Your migraine was probably the result of all the stress and I noticed with hubby, it was when he started to relax that they'd hit. So he'd take a day of and we'd plan to go somewhere and he'd end up in bed with a migraine but those were always after he'd been stressed and he doesn't do stressed as a rule, he's annoyingly laid back.

    Keep taking it easy Ellie, you feel once the tummy upset has gone you should be better but you're actually not.

    Sorry you lost your posts Denise, it is so annoying when that happens.
