Last Sunday was Rememberance Sunday. We decided to mark the occasion by placing a Poppy Cross and planting some daffodil bulbs at Thomas' Grandad ashes site (my Father in Law) who died earlier this year. Niall was in army (Mechanical Emgineers) and served during the late 1950's/60's in places such as Germany, Singapore, Cyprus and Burma.
Niall's ashes are buried on the edge of the local cricket ground where he was an umpire for many years. It was a lovely sunny day and Thomas was very keen to get involved helping his Nan (my Mother in Law) and Daddy plant the bulbs. He enjoyed putting the bulbs in the holes and putting the soil back over them. Thomas helped his Nanny push the cross into the ground too. Afterwards, we went back to the clubhouse for a drink and then took Thomas to the park next door for a play in the playground.
Thomas loved playing on the park. He is getting a lot more confident and coming out of his shell now he is two years old. Everything on the park was the perfect size for him and I am sure we will be back again soon. I look forward to going back in the spring when the daffodils are in bloom and show Thomas' little brother where his Grandad is.
