    So special to see these pictures and to think what a wonderful way to complete Dhiren's story. Absolutely remarkable that you achieved this for him, Sylvia. How content and glad he would be.

    I feel grateful I was able to do this Deborah. I never in my wildest dreams imagined it could happen.

    A special moment Sylvia, and definitely one to preserve in a way to pass on to your grandchildren.

    I imagine the monkey's grandchildren loved the story too - "There I was, minding my own business, having a quiet drink, when all of a sudden this crazy English woman started screaming the place down. I dropped my fanta and legged it out of there!" ;)

    The photos say it all, Sylvia - a special scattering for a special life. My husband loved the English canals - don't think sending him off down the Grand Union through Birmingham would quite match up to your poignant and loving floating of Dhiren's ashes.

    The photos are lovely Sylvia, a precious moment and memory. Thank you for sharing it and so pleased that you were able to do it. Even the size of our dreams doesn't limit what can be or is meant to be:)xx

    Sylvia, I have so enjoyed your posts over the last few years. I feel lucky that I have known you ( and Dhiren) even just as virtual friends. I feel so honoured and privileged to have shared this last journey of Dhiren's, back to his spiritual home. And, if it's not too presumptuous, I feel so proud of you...that you have managed to make this wonderful pilgrimage. Thank you for letting me share this with you.x.x.

    You are all very kind.

    I don`t believe I`ve made any effort to achieve this, as a character analysis suggested I`m a talker rather than a doer. Everything seemed to fall into place, all it took was one suggestion from Helen after we had watched a film about the Ganges. Before then nothing was furthest from my mind.

    I`m not usually a `seize the day` person but this time I did and it all worked out .

    I feel some things, are just meant to be.:)
    Everything, is for a purpose.

    Thank you so much for sharing Dhirens final journey Sylvia.
    His smile lives on in my memory, and in your heart. xxxx

    I feel very privileged to have been there.

    I am now struggling. I have had diarrhoea for a few days now. I then got a sore throat. This morning I have lost my voice and feel full of cold. Thank goodness I didn't have any of this whilst in India. I have cancelled a walk and dinner with my brother so that I can have complete rest.

    Martin is happily decorating our computer room. Sylvia bought me a beautiful wall hanging whilst in India. The computer room is the perfect place for it - hence the decorating.

    I'm sure Martin missed me being away for so long. He has just booked us to go to Malta on the 20th April so I need to feel better by then.

    Wishing you all a Happy Easter.

    Love

    Air conditioning has a lot to answer to Helen. I`ve often ended up with coughs colds and sore throats after plane or train journeys. This time I seem to have escaped anything but am sorry you got it instead.

    It`s such a shame when you were so well in India, although as you say, it`s a good job you weren`t ill there , in your `luxurious ` bedroom with just the monkeys for company.

    Get well soon. xx

    Happy Easter to you too Helen and all on TP.

    Sorry you are poorly but resting up to recover is the best thing, to get stronger with Malta in sight:)

    Your wall hanging sounds interesting and lovely to have a freshly decorated room to hang it in.

    Wishing you better:)xx

    Get well soon then Helen so that you are fit for Malta. I too have often had a heavy cold/bug after a air flight. Whilst its a pity you have this now, thank goodness you did not suffer in India.

    Take care. x

    I think we're both the worse for wear. I feel I still have a UTI , was up every couple of hours last night and feel washed out today.

    It's been a beautiful day with a clear blue sky. My grandchildren called round and were surprised I had the fire on. I was cold. I have a winter jumper on too and socks.
