Our trip to England was a somber yet joyful occasion. Scattering my mother’s ashes in the North Sea gave each of us time to reflect, and say our final good byes to one of the last Grande Dames.
It was like time travel, my father who is 95 revisited his childhood home; his first place of employment which was Bassett Smith back in 1931, but is now the London Metal Exchange; and he toured The Saracens Rugby Club where he played on the team and coached from 1934-1939.
Several of the days and evenings were spent reminiscing at my Uncle’s seaside home “Seacote” in Aldeburgh, Suffolk.
A quaint and quiet town with small shops, galleries, a large shell sculpture perched on the beach and many row houses all nestled together.

When you walk up the road from the cottage, out across a lake with swans gently swimming is the famous home known as the “House in The Sky” as you can see afar in my photo.
We had an interesting and fun trip down memory lane as well, this trip helped us to heal, share and build family memories! So tomorrow we move on to our fun and bright future of decorating with pattern.
