Yeah…. Check me… did I actually have a day that was good… and I was working… and nothing special happened but I feel like I achieved stuff…. Even though I spent all day doing something that didn’t work until smarty pants boss man sauntered over and showed me how it’s done. In seconds. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣
I sooooo wanted it not to work 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣🤣but it did. So I have next week to get it all squared up and it feels good to have a mission.
I love a good mission.
So I’ve not much to report today. It’s the end of my working week and I’m looking forward to my weekend.
Today would have been my Nana’s birthday. She would have been 91 today as she was born in 1930. She died on 23rd May 2014.
She lost my Grandad on Christmas Day 1984 so Nana was on her own for a long time.
There’s not a week goes by that I don’t think about phoning Nana on my way home from work. I used to call her and say “is that ma Nana” and she would say “yes ma darling”… I used to moan about work and travelling and she would always sympathise.
This is a big photo that was kept above the fireplace in their house until after Grandad died. Isn’t she beautiful. ♥️
Here she is with Grandad. I’m very lucky to be able to remember them both but sad that Grandad wasn’t around for her.
I never really stopped to think about that when she was alive. Nana had 4 kids, one of them my dad, and 8 grandkids. She was kept pretty busy. Here we are on my 18th birthday and only the baby of the family, Fee, hadn’t been born yet.
I’ve always loved this photo.
Here are all the girls (with our mums) the night we finished clearing Nana’s house back in 2014.
It was such a bittersweet night as we all sorted through her things but didn’t have her there to tell us what they were.
The night she died I went to visit her with Auntie Jac and we had a lovely time with her. We had a good giggle together despite how rotten she was feeling. It was almost as if she rallied a bit. By early morning she was gone.
Lovely memories today. ♥️
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️

So sorry for your loss, Julie! Your nana was a beautiful lady and she seemed like such an integral person in your life! Happy birthday to your Nana!

Awwww thank you! She used to ask the same questions all the time and drive us mad but none of that matters when she’s gone. I was very lucky to have her until my mid 40s. ♥️
