A Rose Forever In Our Hearts

A Rose Forever In Our Hearts

A year ago today we had to say goodbye to a very special lady. That very special lady is a lady we very proudly call our Nan. She was a very special Nan who is thought about and sadly missed everyday. A Nan who was a blessing and is never more than a thought away.

Since saying our sad goodbyes our Nan’s memory is forever living on in many different way’s. To mark today’s one year anniversary of Nan’s passing we will be sharing our happy memories together with our boy’s and remembering all the good times we were lucky enough to have with our beautiful Nan.

Remembering Our Beautiful Nan

One of our way’s we will be remembering our loving Nan is by growing some very special seeds into a beautiful rose bush for a section in our garden that we have dedicated to Nan. We have named a rose and had it registered on the Amore Rose Registry, where it will be registered for eternity.

This unique rose is a special rose as we had named and registered in honour of our Nan.

A Rose Forever In Our Hearts

The rose seeds we have had registered in honour of our Nan are hardy perennial ‘Rosa chinensis’, known commonly as the China Rose. Our Nan loved her garden and we would often visit her and help out where we could in her garden. We have lots of fond memories of Nan enjoying her garden and chatting over her fence with her neighbours. One of Nan’s favourite flowers was a rose so we thought to have a rose named after her would be fitting.

Name A Rose Pack Contents

The name a rose pack was kindly sent to us by The Gift Experience by way of helping our Nan’s memory live on. The pack contains:

  • Welcome letter
  • Uniquely numbered pack of rose seeds
  • Personalised certificate – displaying the rose seeds number, name and registration date
  • Brief history of the rose seeds
  • A how to care for the rose leaflet
A Rose Forever In Our Hearts

Our unique rose seeds have now been potted up following the instructions on the leaflet provided. We are now looking forward to watching them grow so we can then add them to Nan’s section of our garden once they have developed enough. This is somewhere we can all go to, a quiet spot to sit and remember our loving Nan who we know is always watching over us and is never far away.

A Rose Forever In Our Hearts

The seeds are still yet to grow but once they have we will follow-up with another post. It is said that seedlings can appear in as little as 20-30 days but can take longer.

Planted in loving memory of our dear Nan. Loved and remembered always

Crystal Celebrations

15th Wedding Anniversary

We recently celebrated our crystal wedding anniversary, myself and Ian had already said to the boy’s that we didn’t want a big party as we had just came home from a family holiday instead. The kid’s kept on asking why we wasn’t celebrating with a big party and having crystal celebrations, we then sat the boy’s down and explained to them that with us both working there just wasn’t any time to cater for a party.

In the end the kid’s won and we ended up having crystal celebrations, whilst I was at work Ian was busy doing the gardening and the kid’s tidied the house, the food was being catered for by The Platter Company, we spoke with the platter company on the phone and arranged a convenient time for delivery which Ian took delivery of while I was busy working, all I had to do was arrive home relax, enjoy myself and celebrate, it was lovely and totally stress free…..Perfect!

For our party we had a mixture of sandwiches, this platter consisted of:

    • Bacon lettuce and tomatoes (BLT)
    • Cheese and onion
    • Chicken and sweetcorn
  • Smoked salmon

The sandwiches had just the right amount of filling in them, the bread was lovely and soft we found there to be a lovely choice of sandwiches.

To go with these lovely filled sandwiches is a selection of pastries.

The traditional british feast:

    • Mini sausages roll
