Hello my friends,
I found todays post a lot harder to write then I would ever have expected. It’s not like I haven’t done many Memorial Day posts over the years so it came as a bit of a shock to find myself getting quite emotional as I scanned Google for an appropriate image to start my post. There were lots of Memorial Day Sale images as well as many photos with flags, eagles, red,white and blue and family gatherings etc but I suddenly found myself on a page where most of the photos showed grief stricken loved ones hugging tombstones. The imagery was heart-breaking. It was a strong reminder to me what this day is really all about and while I am not American myself, I was no less affected by the message as any of my American friends.
As a Mum of two soldiers in the British Army I spent every day in fear that this could become my own reality. I was one of the lucky ones. My boys came home safe. As I looked at those photos on Google I thanked God for their safe return and for all those boys and girls throughout the ages who did not make it home. For them and their families left behind to try and carry on, because of you and your ultimate sacrifice we are able to enjoy the freedom we have.
Let me never ever forget what you (and your loved ones) gave for our freedom. Thank you.

Well folks, this is it…… that time when all of Elly’s hard work and your kind help will decide if she is to get to that awesome collage she has her heart set on. It’s a big ask, even with all the extra tuition and help she’s had so I’m keeping my fingers, toes and just about everything else crossed for her while she sits her GCSE exams over the next few weeks.
She had her School Leavers day last week and enjoyed a day filled with fun, frolics and lots of dress up so I’m hopeful those memories will help get her through the stressful moments coming up.
While I am busy helping Elly revise for those final exams we will slow down a tad in BooLand but that just gives us a chance to show off more of our awesome Blossoms Gorgeous creations and share a goodie or two with you (yes, I do have one or two planned throughout next week so keep an eye open ok)
Meanwhile, we wish you and your family and blessed and peaceful Memorial Weekend.
