Cancer Research UK

Sadly, MrM's great aunt died just before Christmas and it was her funeral a couple of days ago. The family asked for donations to Cancer Research UK. Before you think, how terrible that she died of cancer, I'll just interject to say that she didn't! She died very peacefully in her sleep at the grand old age of 102!

Born in 1910, she had a lovely life as a farm hand and had a big family with lots of happy times.

The McBaby and I were hoping to join MrM at the funeral, but the little one has not been at all well over Christmas and I decided that it probably wouldn't be terribly respectful if he vomited at the funeral, so we stayed at home, going out only for a short spell of fresh air and to donate some books and clothes to the Cancer Research shop in town.


  1. Sorry to hear about Mr M's aunt. Although it sounds like she had a lovely life and lived it well.xx

  2. Sorry to hear of your loss, but 102 - what an amazing achievement! I bet she had some wonderful tales!

    I've had my start-of-the-year wardrobe clear out and am off to the CRUK shop later to offload my cast offs.

    Wishing you a happy new year! Jen xx

    1. Thanks both! happy New Year to you too! Looking forward to reading more of your adventures!
