I’m still trying to acclimatise to working fulltime, there is so much work that I feel like I’m just treading water at the moment. Although I try to keep positive, I think I may be kidding myself that I can actually reduce the heaps rather than add to them! I find myself so exhausted that by the time I’m home and been out for an hour with the dogs, it takes a supreme effort of will to get back on the PC for anything more than half an hour of surfing. Hence the lack of posts!
Yesterday there was bit of a bright spot in the unrelenting toil when I was asked to babysit this floral tribute for a while. So beautiful, and it smelled wonderful too. These days it’s unusual to have flowers (other than from the family) at a funeral, and it does seem a bit of a waste since they only probably get given a fleeting glance. The florist who put this together put a lot of thought into it. It was made for a gent, which probably explains the lack of showy stuff, and the thistles and the heather are a tribute to the fact that he was, you guessed it, Scottish. I particularly loved the pussy willow, a lovely reminder of Spring!
