Awful news this evening, plain awful. I don’t understand why people do these evil things. I can not sleep, although I don’t know anyone in Boston I just can’t stop thinking. What can I say except this…? So many hurt, over 100 from the news reports. It’s tragic, but The good outnumber the bad, and we always will.All the people that ran towards the danger, you are heroes, and those runners that kept on running to the hospital to give blood, you guys are awesome. It hurt reading that one of the 3 confirmed dead, was a young boy, just 8 years old. He was by the line as his Dad had been running, I don’t know about his Dad, but the news just said his Mum and Sister are critical condition at the hospital. Its awful. My response? Random kindness. Lets all be nice to strangers! Smile at people.
A family member on my Blokey’s family died recently. Its the funeral on Wednesday this week. We’ve been getting ready, in unusual style!! The lovely, and much missed relative was Auntie Linda, or SmileyL. She was so inspirational, sick her entire life, but smiled almost constantly. She even collected anything with a Yellow Smiley face on, hats, mugs, wind up desk toys, pens, balloons….. you name it. If it was vivid yellow and had stray punctuation on it, she owned it. Sooo, in honour we have got a custom funeral flowers posy plate thingamy. Bright yellow floral smiley face! Like the one on this page, but from a local florist http://www.rays.floristblog.co.uk/?p=353 Ohhh and Blokey is going in a smiley t-shirt. Similar to this http://www.zazzle.co.uk/
