Today We Said Goodbye To Louisa

The first blue sky in months! Today was that illusive day, found only once every four years, the 29th February. We set off early and arrived at the Ashton Court Estate near the city of Bristol at 11am. The children had chocolate in the car on our arrival. I thought ‘Louisa didn’t play golf did she’? We were at the cafe on the golf course. I spoke to Zoe, my niece. ‘We are at the cafe in the old stables’ she exclaimed! Okay, 20 minutes later we arrived. It was an informal affair, just close friends and family.

After 30 minutes we set off to the rose garden for her mum Mary to lay her ashes. My heart goes out to Mary, Zoe, Hannah and their brother Daniel who sadly could not be there.

The children were a tad loud throughout the day, but did amuse, even bring a few smiles. Thor was probably the screamiest he has been in quite a while, especially at the pub that we went to after the rose garden.

Rest in peace, dear Louisa.
