farewell nana........

it's been a very sad few weeks my wonderful nana Audrey Mae Bogue passed away, at 85 years and while back in nz for the funeral grandad said it would be there 59th wedding anniversary next week.....
WOW that just blows me away {59 years together, can you imagine that?????}
they have both been the most amazing grandparents they were always at our birthdays, i got my first teaset at the age of 2, every boxing day we would head out on their boat and find an island to have a picnic on {so many good memories}
i enjoyed my time with grandad while i was back talking about the wonderful wife he has/had, they were truely partners, they did everything together and my hope is that my marriage will be amazing like theirs.....
i've lost two people who i've loved and you never quite realize how much it will hurt, i thought after a few weeks i'd be fine, but i still feel myself tear up and the past few weeks have been a blur.....
i know it sounds strange but it almost doesn't feel real {like a dream}

i can't stop thinking about my grandad and look forward to seeing him next month......some nice photos to leave you with of the view from their house
hope you all have a fab week and thanks for listening/reading and sharing in my world lisa xx


  1. So sorry for your loss Lisa, they seem like they were definite soul mates.
    I completely agree with you, time doesn't matter. My grandpa passed away last year and my nana 11 years ago and I tear up when I think of both of them. But like you I have fantastic childhood memories of them.
    Big blog hugs to you xx

  2. So sorry for your loss Lisa. So lovely that you have so many wonderful memories of your Nana though xx

  3. My condolences Lisa, I'm so sorry. It sounds like your ban had a long, wonderful life and you were lucky to have her in your life for so long. Your Pop will really miss her too.

  6. Sorry to hear of your loss Lisa. I do believe your Grandma has the best name I've heard in a long time. Take care. xx

  7. My thoughts are with you and your Grandad.
    There is no timeframe when it comes to easing the pain of loss and it affects each person differently.

    I'm sure your Grandad will spend much time taking in that glorious view contemplating the rich history that he and your Grandmother created together.

  8. I am so sorry to hear about your loss my dear Lisa. My prayers and thoughts are with you and please know I am here if you need to talk. xx
