- Classic fairytale mushrooms, carved by Alistair, painted by me. Based on a model I found in his teenage dungeons and dragons stuff after he died 🍄🍄🍄 . I nagged him for ages to paint these. It's taken me over a year to get around to it...🙄 . #bereavement #grief #loss #griefandloss #grieving #griefjourney #griefrevolution #widow #widowlife #widowedandyoung #youngwidow #widowsofinstagram #memories #happymemoriesTonight we salute this 32 year old #Peugeot205. 1am. 4 miles of the most intense drive through flooded roads ever. Forced into a huge puddle I couldn't see cos I was being blinded by a flashing emergency vehicle. Stalled in a massive flood that went on forever. Couldn't see it until I was in it, then I just couldn't see! Thought I'd be one of those people who abandon their car... but no. The Pug just started again like it was a normal day and soldiered on. And then some. Phew. Also picture of frog on my drive before I left this evening. #Pug205
