Sixty-six years ago my Grandfather married my Grandmother. And because I like to believe in such things I am quite certain that they had a wonderful celebration together today.

I have been thinking a lot about Millie this week because it feels so weird to be planning to extend my family without talking to her about it. I shared so much of the process with her three+ years ago, even when she didn’t really understand it.

I took a shower with body wash scented with the perfume that she was famous for wearing this morning – I just wanted something, some part of her, with me, near me. Instead it has made me sad and mournful.

But this is what happens anyway on grey and rainy days.
