this week and tomorrow

The only problem with going away for a week is that I didn’t get a chance to do my big clean which I always leave until my holidays. So after a busy time last weekend, I decided that this one would have to be dedicated to tidying, dusting, hoovering, washing etc. The bedrooms were the worst as they tend to get left to their own devices during the week. Our bedroom and the larger spare bedroom (which we use as our dressing room) were in great need, so I set to on our return from town this morning. I’m now feeling dusty and hot and I haven’t anywhere near finished but I decided that enough is enough and the rest can wait until tomorrow. I now have a massive pile of washing to do and the weather is vile so I’ll have to be very unecological and use the tumble dryer, as I refuse to have washing hanging around the house!

Our friend’s funeral last Monday was quite simply, beautiful. As soon as the choral music his son, Simon, had composed was played, copious amounts of tears were running all through the church. And then to move us all even more, Pie Jesu was resonating through the aisles! Wal’s talented sons put on a most wonderul and fitting tribute to their beloved father. Nick’s eulogy was funny, affectionate and hugely moving. Then to end the ceremony Wal himself played us out with recordings of his saxophone playing.

Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday in the UK. As each year goes by, there are more and more young soldiers to remember, and this annual tradition must now mean more and more to much younger generations. This year alone, from a regiment in our area, nine soldiers have been killed in action and seventy one wounded, all in Afghanistan. Not many days seem to go by before we hear of another young life lost. Each case is deeply sad but one that may have struck even deeper was that of Fuselier Gordon Gentle, aged 19, killed in Basra in 2004. Since then his mother has been tirelessly campaigning to uncover the truth behind her son’s death and to make it public knowledge. On Thursday she finally got her wish when it was officially agreed that her son was ‘unlawfully killed’. He died because the armoured Land Rover he was travelling in hadn’t been fitted with a device which would have prevented the detonation of the bomb which killed him. Read more here. It’s bad enough that our government continues to send out more and more troops to somewhere they have no business to be, now we hear that they’re not even protecting them adequately.
Tomorrow I will pay my respects at 11.00 a.m. and remember all those young lives lost. How petty my gripes about housework seem now.
