As we go through this painful journey together we share, cry, scream and shout but we never judge, we know that there is always someone to listen. We always remember our precious children who will never be forgotten and will live on forever in our hearts.

Guilt is such a waste of time, isn't it? And yet I can't cure myself of it.

Cloudy here!

whiteandyellowiris Wed 17-Jul-13 20:21:31

its boiling here me and dd have been at the pool nearly everyday !in a bid to cool down

snorris Wed 17-Jul-13 20:30:55

It's boiling here too but I am determined to enjoy the sunshine and not complain about it!! Last winter in particular seemed to go on forever and all too soon we will be back to rain, mud and darkness wink. No fun doing the horse in that kind of weather, at least at the moment I can go out early in the morning of later in the evening when it's cooler smile.
Everyone (well certainly I do) feels better when there's a bit of sun and I'm making the most of it.

Lovely hot weather here too, which we have been relishing.

But a sad discovery tonight. Mia's Wood has been broken into. The gate is completely smashed, and a car has been driven across the top of the field, running over some of the trees we planted for the picnic circle. Senseless and stupid. hmm

whiteandyellowiris Wed 17-Jul-13 21:59:00

oh im so sorry to hear that miasmummy
absolutely senseless idiots

shabbatheGreek Wed 17-Jul-13 22:07:54

Oh my word Mias - thats awful. Our local cemetry (thankfully not where my boys are) was vandalised very badly last year. It was dreadfull. I dont know what I would do if anything like that happened. I have no idea what makes people do things like that - senseless and very sad.


chipmonkey Thu 18-Jul-13 00:21:34

Mias , how awful! I really hop the feckers have no luck in their lives after doing that!

Mias So sorry to hear about the damage done to Mia's Wood. One of our neighbour's dogs dug underneath the fountain we built for our son & I was numb for a while with despair - a really unexpected reaction for me. We rebuilt the broken part though & it is now more lovely than before (imo). The people who did this to Mia's Wood obviously have unkind souls; what a way to live your life sad

I have been reading the Anne of Green Gables books to ds3. We are on Anne's House of Dreams and Anne just gave birth to her baby, Joyce, who died at one day old. Ds3 said "Your voice is changing" and I said it was so sad and he said "But it's only a story" and I told him it was bringing back memories. But LM Montgomery lost a child in infancy and she totally gets it, right to the point where Marilla tells her Joyce is better off in Heaven and Anne cries "I can't believe that! I read all those books as a child and it's only now I can see the pain in them.

;(((chip))) hmmyou were very brave reading that out loud to ds3.

Thank you everyone for your kind words about the damage to Mia's Wood. We are more annoyed than anything - you can't make stupid people better, but we can buy a new gate, so in an odd way, I feel sorry for them...

chipmonkey Fri 19-Jul-13 11:12:51

That is so true, Mias. although you are better than me, I think I would have wanted to thump them!

Morning smile . Just sat looking at the morning sunshine while enjoying a cup of tea. We had a proper full on, earth-shaking thunderstorm around midnight and everything's all fresh now.

shabbatheGreek Mon 22-Jul-13 06:51:04

blush yesterday was Gareths 31st 'remember day.' I spent the day feeling really fed up and sad but couldn't figure out why. I forgot it was the anniversary! Forgive me little lad. I dont know if that was a good or bad thing.....but its the first time I have ever forgotten xxx

Morning ladies x

You remember your precious boy every day Shabs, the days pass so quickly it is easy to have no idea what the date is, don't feel guilty xx

It looks like it will be cooler today thank god. I haven't been able to function, will get some housework done today, grandsons coming at weekend. xx

shabbatheGreek Mon 22-Jul-13 07:45:37

Yes I do think of him every day Lavandes - you are right! Just realised that nobody in the entire family remembered. My lovely SIL always sends me a text or rings on the important dates but she didn't do that either.....and, as for my amazing Mum.....she rang me about 100 times to ask what date it was - part of me is glad she doesn't remember that horrible day xxx

chipmonkey Mon 22-Jul-13 12:13:34

shabba, I think the fabulous weather makes us all go around half-zonked! I actually forgot my dsis' birthday last week. I am not great with birthdays but only just remembered in time to send her a message. Still haven't got her a pressie!

Helyantha Mon 22-Jul-13 20:54:35

Shabba there are days that pass without notice (like a car journey) - please don't feel guilty.

Sorry to be self-indulgent, but I am in unreasonable tears & don't know where else to 'park' this. It has just been announced that Kate M has had a little boy, which is brilliant news. I can't help but think of the birth of my lovely DS2, who we thought wouldn't survive beyond 5 at best (& is currently bathing DS4 & is a lively, wonderful, almost 17) & DS3, who arrived in the world with a bang, & who we never thought we would lose sad None of us know, do we?

Congratulations, Kate and William: hold him tight xx
