Mixed up lateness

I really thought that I was on top of this blogging again and then last week my dad died.  As I have mentioned before it was a difficult relationship because of the amount of abuse and if truth be known his death has been a huge relief.  He wasn't happy for the last couple of years and he was able to get out (which he loved) until a few days before he died.  I have mourned more for the life we never had than for his death.
My digi layout for the week of his death is using an old photo of him.  He was never happier than when he was sailing, which unfortunately he was not able to do for a good few years before his death.

Mum has wanted the house cleaned thoroughly as Dad didn't like her doing it and would express his dislike very forcefully, so for the last couple of weekends I have been cleaning.

Here is my June view and a collage of all the monthly shots taken so far.  It was interesting to see how it has changed.


  1. I am really sorry Alison. Even difficult relationships are still relationships and aren't easy when they finish. Iwish you find peace soon. Your view changing looks

  2. I am so sorry to here about your dad. It is the end of an era for you and must be sad no matter what happened. I'm glad you could help your mum to clean as it must have been a good way to relieve your feelings for you both.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. It is very good of you to help your Mom clean and I am sure she appreciates it very much.

  4. Please accept my most sincere condolences for your father.
    I apologize - I learned the sad news today.
    You really are on top of your art work. I really like your creations and projects.
    Stay close to your mother!

  5. Ahhh Alison, I have just fallen on this news as I have been away from blogging myself. It is always a time of mixed emotions before and after, I actually think that being honest about things is so healthy for you, hope you and your Mum can share some close and memorable times in the midst of all this.. hugs Kathi x

  6. I have only just found your blog via Lucky Snapping, sorry to hear your news but understand the words. xx

  7. Happy New 2014!
    Happiness, health, love and good luck - let them be with you all the time!
