Nana's Funeral

My Grandma's funeral wasn't quite as upsetting as it could have been. The song choice shook me a bit - Stevie Wonder singing "I just called to say I love you" which was mine and my Mum's song when I was posted overseas in the army - so that made us both cry. 

In the pub afterward we looked at loads of photographs from years gone by - including one of me wearing my Army Uniform on the day I passed out of basic training (I will scan it and post it on here in a few days...unless you pay me not to!)......that was a hit with a friend who has a thing about girls in uniform - but that's quite common isn't it?...having a thing about girls in uniform....and when I say 'common' I don't mean common as in 'shops in Lidl' - I mean 'common' as in usual) and then a few of me in the late eighties and early nineties - bizarre 'funky' bad hair and HUGE shoulder pads - ugh - what were we thinking? Mind you I had no wrinkles or bags under my eyes in those days!!! Loads of pictures of Dan when she was a chubby babba, and then a few of the old school pictures.

It was nice to remember and nice to say a fond farewell to Nana Winnie.
