A Year Ago Today

My Dearest Eileen

It's the 26 April today.

I thought you would enjoy recalling what we were doing exactly a year ago on 26 April 2009.

We were staying with Adrian and Nikki and these are some of the photographs I captured that day. 

Darcy came in to wake us just after 8 o'clock...

Looks like the makings of 'bad hair' day.

Time to try out my new camera. 

Food for thought.

Let's feed the ducks.

Is that all the bread we've got?

We'll have to bring more next time.

It's nice to sit and have a rest.

Are you enjoyed being in the sun Oma?


Now where has that sun gone?

Shall we go home, Oma?

That's how well you were doing just a year ago.  Yes there were signs that things were not as they should be.

But you still were lively and full of fun.  Still wanting to make the most of things and enjoy the company of those you loved and who loved you. 

Hope you enjoyed this little look back in time.  There are still a couple of   adventures to come - but we'll talk about them another time.     

Just looking back at these photographs has reminded me of just how much you enjoyed life and how much you put into it.

But that's the way you always were.  

Do miss you and your sense of fun.  Life is so much duller without you and your laughter. 

All my love, as ever.
