I'm learning to check out the dustbin area!


Its been a strange few months!
I’m not sure if I should tell this story! Hay, in for a penny etc.
I went to see Tony, you cant go to see tony without at some point tiding up! well I’m starting to clear his dinning room when Tony picks up a green bag from under the table and says ‘Guess whats in here? Its Donna’ Turns out its realy Donna, or her ashes at least and his plans are to scatter her over the sands at Margate! There, that will put everyone off a trip to the seaside.
Your kidding, you cant do that, your have some kiddy digging in her next year, thats gross!
Come on were going down the park, scatter her where Anthony can if he wants to go and visit her!
So on a realy cold january afternoon the four of us went and scattered her over a bush in a local park. Being carefull that no one would catch us, shore somehow it must be illigal. Anthony was pleased, there was a bench, she liked benches!

Just hope with all that bonemeal on one bush we didnt kill it!

Then there was the sideboard being skipped, no one wanted it cos the doors wouldnt open. Did later when it had dried out! Tony was on holiday although I had mentioned it to the manager, I felt like I had knicked it.

Next foray into the bin area found a broken ern, and its unbroken brother, which maded its way under the magnolia tree that Tony had moaned at me for trimming, well it was a bit more than a trim………..

So what san I get up to next

Love that urn Sandy that will look beautiful when planted up, as for the ashes being scattered in the park, a very loving idea and practical because you can have very happy memories when taking a stroll and a sit down on that bench.

My Mum always said she wanted her ashes scattered under a tree near to her grandparents grave, so we did exactly that, a number of our anscestors are there so I suppose she wanted to be with family.
Glad you rescued the urn, it looks good where you`ve placed it...

Yes I'll never pass that garden without thinking of Donna!
I'm pleased with how the urn looks. Want to make a hot border round it, and just got the 'gardeners world' mag. with loads of ideas.

I think the urn will look nice all planted up aswell.
I like the sideboard too. Good you rescued it.
Nice that Donna was laid to rest somewhere pleasant.
