today

Today we said a final farewell to my lovely little Grandma.

She was a lovely, kind, warm, wonderful person, she was so friendly and good at looking after people. I think we gave her a wonderful goodbye. My mum and I read a eulogy (hard to do!) and then the whole family & friends had tea and cake and laughter & gossip.

I wasn't too sure about putting something on my blog, but it's nice to be able to honor her memory.



The past week has been pretty sad & exhausting, and I am very much looking forward to getting stuck back in to work tomorrow!

xx Penny
(P.S. - the photo is of a book I wrote for her in primary school - it's pretty cute.)

I've just discovered your blog on a sad week. I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. Your day was just like mine, six years ago. A lovely farewell, the eulogy, the laughter and cake. As much as my heart was breaking at that time, I think about it all now, with a big warm smile. I was lucky to have know my nan and had her in my life.

Your grandma will live on in your heart.

Take care:)

Oh Penny, I'm so sorry to hear that. I've been through losing my grandparents, and I still miss them all very much. Grandmothers are such special people in our lives, often so inspiring and encouraging, it's a very sad time when you lose them. But, I still think of mine often, she stays with me in small moments... yours will too.

Many hugs .xx.
