Considering my rather lengthy absence and lack of posts, one would think Life at Number 10 had stopped.
But it has been a rather awful few months for us around here.
My (younger) brother passed away suddenly in April. It was a terrible shock and we're still trying to come to terms with it.
Then my elderly Aunt died. She would've been 102 next month. She was an amazing woman!
Even at her age she was sharp as a tack, lived independently in her own home, was an avid reader, shopped and sewed and until recently, mowed her lawn and pottered in the garden.
She was my Mum's only sister and she was my only Aunt.
I also learned just a couple of weeks ago that a very close friend passed away as well.
So, as you can imagine, we've been a bit down in the dumps around here.
But, life goes on here at Number 10. Fortunately, MONT and I are OK...just a bit sad
