We have a little bit of sad news to impart …….. having returned from yet another Greek odyssey Mum has decided that it might be time to leave us in a happy place and resign from “her role that is to be our full time PR”.
She’s been carrying one, two or all three of us with her every day for almost eight years now, trailing us through the likes of Wolverhampton, Evesham, London, Las Vegas, New York, Rome and Pompeii, Iceland and The Czech Republic, Greece, Buckingham Palace, The Pride of Britain, The London Olympics, countless Sun Holidays, births, deaths and marriages, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, you name it we’ve done it ……... need we say more?
The aforementioned Mum says it would just be nice to look at the world through her own eyes for a change and not always be feeling that she needs to find something to write about on a daily basis and then having to do it in bulk and in advance to cover holidays and weekends away.
She says we have been through so much together during the past eight years, when we first started out back in 2009 life was “normal” and then we lost Andy, which began the rollercoaster ride that lead to us eventually emigrating from Castle Greysquirrel in Wolverhampton to The Towers at Evesham ……… we took the bare minimum with us and most of that was discarded as nothing fit or went, so it really was a true new start, even down to our cutlery and plates! But we made it.
I have to say that we too, hard to believe I know, are no longer in our prime, we’ve all had/got problems associated with going threadbare, uneven stuffing syndrome, catches, pulls, as well as split seams, making going “in the washer” now a very risky and precarious business.
So, we have to agree with Mum, leaving us in a happy place is a sad but probably right thing to do ………
However, perhaps all is not lost, it might be contradictory, but just like certain characters in Coronation Street and EastEnders Mum is not averse to leaving the door slightly ajar for us, as she might find we are be a hard habit to break …….. so she is going to see if writing one post on the first of every month works, a round up of the month or anything special we have got up to, like going to the cottage to see Hugh or being in a TV audience.
All we can say is thank you so much to each and every one of you who have poped in each day, especially Mr D, Dianne, Di, Michelle and Jan The Fan to mention just a few ……. we wouldn’t have lasted on here for all those years without your comments and support.
Now, before we get too emotional and totally dissolve in a most unseemly snotty fashion, let’s just say adieu until 1st September at least …….. unless Mum cracks first. xxx
