A Bittersweet Day ............

............ as yesterday, we celebrated the life of my Dad with a very small but moving memorial service.  It was so lovely to see some long time family friends and to be able to spend some quality time with them, even if the reason for it was such a sad one.

The previous two weeks have been a bit of a blur with funeral arrangements and such, but I was able to spend some 'creative' time when making up Dad's memorial cards.

It was a kind of theraputic release :)

The beautiful flowers from Mr Fixit's side of the family :)  ........ they lasted more than a week!

I have received some lovely cards from friends :)

from two of my 'crafty' friends Kaye & Mandy

from my friend Paula, and family friend Maureen

I leave you with this message (part of a comment left on Facebook for me, by a very dear long-time family friend)

Hold your loved ones tight, and tell them you love them, it's so important; you never know what could be around the corner. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
