Grandad Reg

Yesterday AJ's Grandad Reg passed away. He had been ill for quite a while but it still came as a shock to the family.

Reg, I think was 85 and had lived a good but hard working life. He was a Commando in WW2 and saw things that no one should ever have to witness, and throughout his life he was a Master Butcher.

He married Jean and they had three children; Susan, Karen and my father in law Nigel. In the late 1970's they moved to Blackpool and his children and grandchildren all have the fondest of memories visiting them. A trip to Cleevely's still brings a smile and laughter to AJ and the rest of the family.
About 6 or 7 years ago, Reg and Jean returned back to the West Midlands in happy retirement until Jean's untimely passing in 2008. They had been married over 60 years. Now they are reunited.

Reg was a big, strong, handsome man in his time. (My FIL and husband both look like Reg- unfortunately I haven't a photo at hand to post). He was also proud and a real fighter- right up to the end.

I only knew Reg for a short time but I am previledged to have met him.
He will be missed by the family and will remain in our hearts for ever. Love you Grandad Reg xx

November round up- Scrapbooking retreats ahoy!!

November has been a strange yet good month. I have been made redundant from my job in local government (my last day at work was Friday 25th - official day of leaving is tomorrow 30th). And though I'm worried about finding another job, I'm definitely looking forward to having some free time (whilst looking for another job) and doing the many things on my list of things to do - like sort out my craft room, Christmas shopping, JYC 2011, a good clear out and doing a little cooking/baking.




Leading up to last Friday was a mix of emotions and though I am not sad to leave my place of work (it feels the right time to leave), I am sad not to be working with some people. But you can not stay in a place just for the people, and I've got to do the right thing for me for once.




However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
