Rosaboobie has promised to drop in and visit us... I've been direct to nag her until she does! Her life is a bit topsy turvy right now.

Rosaboobie is here at long last - alive and well ha ha!

Thank you, my friends, for my Birthday wishes, and you can smack me hard for not being here recently. What with holidays etc. I dont know where the days and weeks disappear to.

I have become obsessed of late in researching my Family Tree, and this has taken up all of my time. Initially, I was seeking to find out more information about the guy who fathered me ha ha. I wont even call him Dad as I think that is too nice a word for him. What I have found out about him, does not really surprise me ha ha. The more i find out, the less I like him!

If you are at all interested, this is my Family tree at present, and you can find it in more detail on Ancestry. I recently took a DNA test, and it revealed 3 Second Cousins, two of which I already knew about but the third one is a half-sister living in England. Interesting stuff indeed!

That's absolutely fascinating! So Joyce Brown is your mother and Francis Wyatt is your "father," right?

Yes, you are correct - but unfortunately Mum passed the night before last - 6 weeks short of her 96th Birthday - so a very mixed Birthday for me today. Some of you may know my circumstances re Mum but at the end of the day, she was my Mum, for better or worse.

I know I've already shared my sympathies with you, I'll do so here too. As we said, she was still your mum. I think this makes 4 of us who have lost a parent in 2018 now.

Rosaboobie! I wish you every good thing
for your special day and always!


I am sorry to hear about your mother. No matter your past problems, it's still a difficult time. My thoughts are with you.
Cure procrastination. Just don’t do it.

Jk and Kickaha - I was so sorry to hear of your loss too this year. I guess, like Drac says, we are unfortunately "of that age" now but we must consider ourselves the fortunate ones that they lived a long life.

Thank you, Stella - I am having a Birthday weekend, so I am still celebrating today. Music always cheers me up, so Alexa has been playing very loud music for me all day long - Queen, Elton John and 90s Classic Club Anthems - what a good job I dont have any neighbours close to me.

Thank you, Rosy, for your sympathies. Unlike you, my relationship with my Mom was very dear, such that I had become her caregiver for her last 3 and a half years. I miss her very much, but know that she's home now...which is where she wanted to be.

I think it's great that you are wanting to go back in time and research your ancestry...connecting the dots, as it were. I've actually done some reconnecting with childhood friends over the past few weeks...kids that I grew up with in the neighborhood...that are now grown women. It is amazing how little we have changed as we all recognized each other at once!

Yes, JK - I do know that your relationship with your Mom was very very different to my circumstances, although I never ever let my Mum know how I really felt about her. She went to her grave fully believing that I was still her ever-loving Daughter. I have to make another call to the Funeral Directors tomorrow finalising the arrangements. Not much for me to do as Mum left very explicit and detailed instructions of what she wanted. No service, no mourning, no flowers, except from me. Just a simple cremation.
