Evening all! I do hope you are well. I want to take this opportunity to thank the many of you who have sent cards and/or letters - I really do appreciate the time you have taken to do this - you are all wonderful.
We are doing okay - the girls are back at school and have been absolutely fine - I have been starting to put together things for the funeral - I only just found out that the coroners office have released Shaun yesterday so things are moving slowly. There has to be an inquest - apparently it is very common since the Dr Shipman cases - the inquest opens next week and will take between 6 and 9 months to conclude. We will be furnished with interim death certificates which should allow us to do most things other than formerly register the death. I really wish things were a bit simpler but we just have to get on with things as they are.
I had an evening in my attic earlier in the week and got to grips with my Tims Tag for January. This was my therapy and my tag is made very much with Shaun in mind.
I followed the techniques detailed here
by Tim Holtz. I used musical tissue wrap, spiced marmalade, rusty hinge and frayed burlap and tarnished brass distress paints, distress stain sprains, antique linen distress glitter, chit chat stickers, glue and seal, white acrylic paint. All of the chit chat stickers were very personal to Shaun - I also used the number 8 which is Shauns number.
I hope you like my tag - it certainly has been great therapy making it.
Thanks go to Mr Holtz for an enjoyable evening thinking positively about my lovely hubby!
Big hugs to you!
