Sometimes life is just generally poopy.

Mr Stitches’ Aunt Maggie passed away at the weekend.

Today was her funeral.

The forecast for the day was rain, rain, oh and a wee bit of rain on top.  Ha!  It was glorious sunshine to cut through the sadness.

Today would have been Pa Stitches’ birthday.

That called for fish and mushy peas for supper.  His absolute favourite.  You could almost hear him saying “that’s not cod, that’s a whale steak!”

Today Son of Himmelbjerget and Little E celebrate their birthdays.  Happy Birthday to you!

It seems life ain’t all that bad after all.
