A sad homecoming.
I was very sad today when we left my late Aunts home and the place I was born in yorkshire , yes we plan to go back but I shed a few tears on the way out of the village. We are both really tired after clearing the bungalow, that was a harrowing experience as was finding her precious things and old family photo's etc. It would have been good to arrive home to a nicely ordered house but not to be as we are in the middle of decorating and re carpeting, definitely have the urge to run away to sea!!! I took lots of crafty things with me but by the time we got to sit down at night I couldn't keep my eyes open so nothing was done and may not be done for a little while yet. Some of the things I brought back with me such as lace mats, old linen buttons and bits of unusual fabric etc will be used in my fabric work and keep my Aunts memory alive, not that we would ever forget her!!
