Anniversaries

I am trying to not worry about things that haven't happened yet (as Ricardo used to constantly remind me) but there are some pretty tricky anniversaries coming up and I wondered if any of my friends out there in blog land had any ideas.
It will have been Richard's 64th birthday this Thursday and I have no idea how a widow goes about celebrating such a thing. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love it if you could leave me a small comment. Thanks gang.
P.S. I found this spiderweb on my walk this morning there were hundreds of them in the grass. Beautiful.

Come and see me for a cuppa, a toast to Richard and to recognise the not so nice but,for him,to look at some nice memories that day.

Absolutely beautiful delicate web!! What a find. As Olive's teacher would say "that was your nature's gift". We love a heart shaped anything don't we? My only advice is to just breathe, and usually the build up to a difficult anniversary is more difficult than the actual day... Try to go gently... Lots of love xxxx

Looking at photos with friends and anything involving food must be a winner.

I don't don't think you'll know what you'll feel like doing until the day so have a couple of plans lined up. xxxx

Darling Lulu. I've decided to have a small get together doing just that. Liquorice cake coming right up!!!

Sky Lanterns are lovely. Otherwise music, food and friendship soothes a tattered soul.
