A Funeral, A Baby Naming and Glass Art

1   It was a beautiful send-off for Mo this morning with a good number of laughs as her naughty sense of fun was remembered. Our singing of ‘You are my Sunshine’ was appreciated though the words have never seemed more poignant and we won’t ever sing it again without thinking of Mo. It was so good to have Claire Ingleheart with us returned specially from her work in London.

2   I spent the rest of the morning working on a Baby Naming Ceremony for Saturday – the welcoming into the world of another new life.The parents have chosen some lovely readings and their words are just beautiful.

3  I love these glass Agapanthus flowers which we bought in the Scillies a couple of years ago. Every time I see them, I remember our holiday. Unfortunately I don’t have the artist’s name.

Tomato Soup, Wheal Coates and Singing with the Inglehearts

1  The cream of tomato soup that Mr S made for our lunch looked so perfectly orange and beautiful.

2   We went for our favourite local walk from Chapel Porth up to Wheal Coates coming back to the beach cafe for a delicious hot chocolate and some homemade ginger cake (made by Rosie)

3  Singing with the Inglehearts for the first time in two weeks was overlaid with sadness as one of our singers, the much loved Mo, died last week and we were practising “You are my Sunshine” to sing tomorrow at her funeral. That was hard but it did us all good to sing and to remember her with some stories. We sang ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ in her honour as it was another of her favourites.
