On Saturday we were due to take my mother to the crematorium`s garden of remembrance, where Gordon`s ashes have been buried in a plot with his name on, and the work has just been finished.
DD4 woke up, went to the loo and then said "Mum, I feel si.............." and was indeed sick everywhere.
Cleared her up, shoved the soiled linen in the washing machine, and repeated the procedure several more times.
Luckily my mother-in-law popped over and volunteered to stay with the girls so we could still take my mother to place flowers on Gordon`s little grave plot.
He is in the new section, and we put tulips, daffodils and carnations on his plot. The whole place was ablaze with colour, as many people had been putting flowers for Mother`s day, but it really all looked beautiful, and Mum found it very uplifting.
We have promised the small ones that we will take them and my mum back over next weekend so they can lay flowers too, and see where their adored Grandpa is buried.
Dd1`s laptop is dead as a dod, and we are waiting for tech support to get back to us. it is under warranty, mercifully. She is suffering acute laptop withdrawal symptoms.
Half our expected guests for lunch on Sunday were unable to make it, so my huge amount of cooking was partly in vain :-(
But at least DD4 is better, I thought to myself.
And I had the DVD season 4 set of ER as a Mother`s day present, as well as gorgeous home-made cards from my little ones.
We had good news that a family feud between two older members of my husband`s family has been resolved , Glory to God.
But today, Monday, DD3 woke up with a raging temperature and feeling poorly.
It seems that we have only had one weekend this year where every single member fo the family has actually been well simultaneously.......
And it is raining. Not just drizzle, but monsoon type weather.
