It is a bit of a conundrum when you wake up in the morning and go for your wash and brush up
and find what should be liquid is now solid
It is enough to make you want to to go straight back to bed
Three years ago, four of us left the city for a new adventure.
Muriel was the senior adventurer – 91 years old at the time
Since arriving at Gribin Isaf she has often talked about the peace and tranquility she found here, the freedom from close neighbours, the pleasure she has gained from being close to animals and watching the every changing view to the distant mountains.
In the Autumn she welcomed Robin, her latest great-grandchild, to Gribin Isaf.
During the first hours of the new year Muriel died peacefully here at home, between the Christmas tree and the log-fire. Robin was there and his call was the last sound she heard.
