Life goes on

Considering my rather lengthy absence and lack of posts, one would think Life at Number 10 had stopped.

It hasn't.

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


  1. That is more than your share of loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Wow to be 102 and still live on your own. I'm pretty sure some wonder if I should live alone at 59. :)

  2. That's a heavy burden to carry in such a short time.

    1. Thanks's been a terrible few months...roll on 2016 I say.

  3. I'm so sorry to read of the loss your have experienced in recent months, especially the unexpected loss of your brother. Your aunt was incredible to be living so independently at that age!! Thinking of you xx


I love to hear your thoughts.
