Shorncliffe Pier

Yesterday was Mothers Day and as planned, we took Mum's ashes up to Shorncliffe Pier and released her ashes.

We also sent her fathers ashes with her, which have sat in her wardrobe for more than 25 years.
Mum with us not so long ago

So, Jack dressed as a self proclaimed "Bad Batman", and we all hopped in the car for the two hour drive.

Jack in Bad Batman mode.

Then, as a family we all walked out to the pier and found a spot on the very busy pier that we could release the ashes without the fear of some poor fisherman, minding his own business, copping a lashing of Mum dust.

Yesterday was a picture perfect day. And was exactly what we wanted for Mum.

Happy Mothers Day and Love you Mum x

My brother, Les & I

I should also mention, I got spoilt rotten by my husband who was slave for a day (his words not mine) and Maddie, Sam and Jack who gave me the best give of all, kisses and cuddles.
