A year ago today my Dad died, it was a blessing in some ways as he was living with end stage dementia. Not sure what Mum and I will be up to today, but we will certainly be remembering him as he was an amazing husband and dad.

Gold Hill, Shaftesbury

These are rooftops that he much loved. They are on Gold Hill in Shaftesbury, a walk we did regularly. The main reason though for sharing this shot today is that you can see the house where Mum and Dad lived when we walked this hill. Just squint and to the right of the tallest chimney, on the brow of the middle hill to the left of some trees there’s a red brick house. That’s the one!

  1. This photo is drop dead gorgeous. I know how you feel about your dad. My dad died on 09/09/09! and my mom and I did many things together afterwards until she left this earth. I am so glad I had time with both of them in their old age, even if at times it was difficult

  2. What a lovely place.
    We are walking in your shoes with my dad at this time. It is difficult. I am praying the time will be short.

  3. I hope your day went well, Becky and that you were able to share fond memories with your mum. It’s a wonderful photo you posted: I can’t imagine having such a quaint place to walk in or such a beautiful place to live.
