|our lovely black flag, matches the grey sky!|
Well it's the rugby world cup here in New Zealand. Everywhere you go you see heaps of cars with flags on supporting what ever country they like. We have just put a new zealand flag up on our house on top of the old tv ariel. I don.t have pic of it yet as the weather is stink! might try tomorrow.
Last friday my mother in law, shirley, passed away in north shore hospital. she has had breathing problems as she suffered from emphaciema quite bad and died quietly in her sleep as she was totally exhausted, . We had her funeral last wednesday and it was a lovely service, lots of good memories , lovely photo slide show of her life , no dry eyes anywhere, it was really nice. She was a true warriors league fan, she would have got a real giggle from seeing the streaker in fridays game , lol ! we put little momentos in with her.Conor, my youngest son, put his warriors flag in, and I made a dragonfly with a message attached, and chey, her very youngest grandson, put his little penguin and a cute wee teddy bear. We really miss her heaps..but now she is at peace with her hubby again. R.I.P. shirley....never forgotten.
|These flowers were from shirley's sister barbra, they are beautiful too!|
|and these beautiful orchids were from one of her care givers. (sorry the pic has gone awry..dont know why)|

|Poppy on the couch.|
On the 20th of august we had to have our dog 'poppy' put to sleep. She has had nasty old tumor on her front leg, on her elbow. It never seemed to bother her ,she still ran and walked....and chased the cats and the chickens... as any dog does. She has been on pills since xmas time but it just kept growing and looked ghastly!! She piled on the weight due to her medication which made her hungry quite abit. She would steal the cats bickys when she thought we wern't looking!! She has been gone 14 days and I really miss her heaps and so do the 5 cats!! She use to sit with me sometimes when i was sewing and never miss anything you did. She has lovely big brown sad looking eyes too.... She was my youngest son's dog and has had her since she was a pup about 8 weeks old, he was really upset about losing her, but will be ok. We won't get another dog for quite a while but will in the future no doubt. He made her a lovely cross to put on her grave and covered it with ferns from the bush. I told him to take lots of photos's,, which he did.. (300) Lol! Time will heal .
