Tuesday 20 September 2022
I, like many, have found the last two weeks unbelievable. It is still find it hard to believe that Queen Elizabeth II is no longer our Monarch. I have served her all my life from the age of seven as a Brownie, then as a Guide, and currently as a Scouter for more than 40 years.
We all have times to remember, stories to tell: I remember standing by Nuneaton train station waiting to see her, our daughter a baby in my arms and our son a toddler sitting high up on my late father's shoulders.
I remember being at Buckingham Palace when my step-dad received his MBE, mum and I seated in the Ballroom just five rows from The Queen, it was a very surreal occasion.
I also remember sitting in St George's Chapel with my late Dad on St George Day when he received the Silver Acorn for his service to Scouting, and later lining the quadrangle at Windsor Castle to watch the Queen give awards to our amazing young members.
Yesterday Hubby and I watched all the coverage of Her Majesty's State Funeral, my eyes with continuous tears and my heart heavy. It was a poignant day, the perfect tribute to a wonderful lady who dedicated her life to serve us.
These are a few special moments:

It's a whole year since Topsy Turvy SAL began, huge thank you to everyone who has added photos to the albums each month
The themes will stay the same as before and there will be a new album open on the 20th of each month for sharing. I have made a sub forum for the Galleries.
So September is 'Happy New Year'
Here's the link to September 2021's post with a few New Year freebies
Each month this time round there will be a link to a small purchasable chart. The choice is not sponsored or paid, just something that caught my eye.
