March already

Hi, I haven't blogged for a while I know.  It has been a difficult winter for us.  My dear, nearly 91yr old mum died on 3rd February after a couple of months of illness. What can I say, except, I miss her.  We all do.  I remember a friend telling me when her husband died suddenly, how she felt the rest of the world should stop.  Its been a bit like that for us.  She was a big part of my day to day routine, so there are gaps I am finding it hard to fill. We cant keep our parents forever, and I am blessed to have had her with me for so many years.  I did get around to some sewing, which is very therapeutic.  I was taking part in A Little Quilt Swap 8. Organised by Kate North.  I finished my quilt and it went to Sacramento to live with Marei........ :(   
For the last two days I have tried and tried to attach pictures to this blog.  It just wont happen.  I am going to try one more goes.   Well, that was a no.  I don't know what has happened.  I am at a loss to know what to do.  Who wants to read a lot of blethers without some pics to enjoy.  I think I will finish this blog and try a fresh one later.  Maybe I need some techie training.  I am obviously doing something wrong. Bye for now.


  1. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope that your memories of her will help you through the most difficult of times.

    Blogger hasn't worked for me either. I started using Live Writer to do my posts. It is a free download and actually easier to upload photos than Blogger.

  2. I don't think we are ever really ready to lose a parent, no matter how old we are, or indeed they were. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope it helps you to know she had a long life and also that you did the best for her.
    Regarding uploading pictures; the exact thing happened to a friend; suddenly she couldn't upload pictures, and then a few days (or maybe weeks) it worked again. She said that the window, where you normal upload never had the option for uploading from files.

  3. Hi Barbara, I am so sorry to hear about your mum.

  4. I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. It is always difficult to lose a parent, even when you know it can happen. I do hope everyone (that includes you Blogger) treats you more gently as you go through the grieving process.
