"let your boat of life be light, packed with only
what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, someone to love and someone to love you,
enough to eat and enough to wear
and a little more than enough to drink:
for thirst is a dangerous thing"

happy birthday nix

Nicky would have been 58 today

She must have been an awesome kisser, cos she sure could cook!!
Happy times on the houseboat
Looking for Jamie Oliver at the Borough Market 
London - 2005

Doris, Thelma or Louise?
Ireland - June 2005

Mosaic in my Courtyard
In the middle is her favourite salad bowl, which had broken (and she had saved) and which she ran home to fetch as she thought it would be
perfect in the middle
It is!!

They are not dead,
Who leave us this great heritage of remembering joy.

They still live in our hearts,
In the happiness we knew, in the dreams we shared.

They still breathe,
In the lingering fragrance,windblown, from their favourite flowers.

They still smile in the moonlight’s silver,
And laugh in the sunlight’s sparking gold.

They still speak in the echoes of the words we’ve heard them say again and again.

They still move,
In the rhythm of waving grasses, in the dance of the tossing branches.

They are not dead;
Their memory is warm in our hearts, comfort in our sorrow.

They are not apart from us, but part of us,

For love is eternal,
And those we love shall be with us throughout all eternity.


Cheers Nix
Thanks for the love and happiness you shared with so many
