Two years on and you are sleeping safe and sound, oblivious of the wettest year for decades, which you would have hated. Spring is here again and with it, at last, the fine sunny days that marked your passing. Your son Steve has written and had a book published in your honour, which would have made you so proud. You are in my heart and in my thoughts. Love Karen xxxx

Thinking of you at this time of year Mum, you were very good at Xmas and always went out of your way to make it special for us when we were small. I always loved to help you pack up all the presents and decorate the tree, the tree chocolates never went on until Xmas eve, otherwise they would have slowly disappeared from the tree and into small eager hands and mouths!

I saw you in a dream just before waking on Tuesday morning. You were wearing one of your favourite skirts, royal blue with a magenta flowers and a royal blue jacket. You looked well, like your old self and not thin. You were smiling and looked relaxed. You told me that I am not to worry about you and that you are at peace now. I woke up feeling calmer than I have for a long time.

I was thinking about you tonight on my way home from doing Bertie and was remembering how welcoming you always were to all the strange waifs and strays that I brought home during the holiday season. I also remembered how it was my special job as a child to hang the chocolate mice on the tree on Christmas Eve as you watched Coronation Street. You made Christmas special. Love Karen xxx

Dear Mum,
Christmas is nearly here, but it won't be the same this time around. In a funny sort of way, though, you seem closer than ever. Will light a candle for you on Christmas Eve - your favourite day of the Season.
Lots of love, Nina xxx

Mum, I recall you in the long, hot summer of 1976, in your favourite "shirtwaister" dress (that you wore until it fell apart!)down the garden, picking runner beans, a cat 'round your ankles,humming Glen Miller and smiling. You smiled a lot!

Hinge & Bracket and a tabby cat named Dillon.

Shared by Karen Anne Chudley on December 25, 2011

One year we bought Dad the Hinge & Bracket LP recording for Christmas fully expecting to be terrorised by the dodgy duo's dreadfull caterwalling for the duration of the festive break.  Luckily fate and a tabby cat named Dillion intervened.  Dillon broke into his gift wrapped box of crunchie crispies during Christmas Eve night, overindulged and was sick all over the offending Hinge & Bracket LP, which put us all off handling it until it had dried out and saved our ear drums from torture.  You laughed at this for most of the holidays and seemed to be quite happy about the mishap that befell this most ill chosen of gifts!

Secrets in the Sand

Shared by Karen Anne Chudley on May 25, 2011

Being Mum to five children was not without its amusing moments.  Mum and Dad took us on regular coach trips to the sea side during the summer holidays and it was on a trip to the Cinque Ports of Kent that we were to encounter alien life forms.  Dad was a keen Gardner, he had to be with us lot to feed, and would often collect horse manure from the common for the compost heap.  Unfortunately, he also watched TV gardening programmes and one idea he got from this was that seaweed was excellent stuff for the garden.  At Hearne Bay seaweed was in plentiful supply and, being an avid beach comber, I helped Dad to fill a carrier bag to brimming with the slimy stuff, which was duly loaded onto the coach for our return journey.  Things started to get a bit strange en route to Canterbury.  Shufflings and mutterings could be heard along the length and breadth of the coach.  I glanced down and was horrified to see a column of plump and colourful sandhoppers advancing down the gangway in a most determined fashion.  Mild mannered elderly ladies were starting to panic, feet were being tucked onto seats, Mum was barely suppressing the urge to laugh.  At Canterbury we dumped the precious bag of seaweed in a public bin but for the remainder of the journey the odd sand hopper could be glanced peeking out from beneath a seat.  Mum gave Dad a good telling off when we got home and we all went to bed laughing, to dream of sand hoppers! 

Bad Hair Day

Shared by Nina Curle on May 21, 2011

Back in the 1970s, Mum tried to dye her lovely white hair a shade that was supposed to be Chestnut Brown. Except that, when she emerged from the process, it was bright orange! She wore a headscarf and kept a low profile for a week before plucking up the courage to visit the hairdresser. All they could say was, "What have you done to yourself?!"

Mum stuck to Nature's Own colour after that!
