Mum
Sorry this post is even later ... Photobucket was down over the weekend and now it, or my computer seems to be on a go-slow!  Then yesterday I was very breathless - so much so I have spent the last couple of days in and out the hospital checking whether I had a pulmonary embolism.  However eveything is 100% OK, so just viral still.  But good to have a full MOT!

Anyway - Higher Cemetery Exeter ...

The Children's area.  Therre is a huge area placed along one side just for burials of children under one year old.

This memorial can be seen in the background of mum's photo.  It is to commemorate over 160 people who died in a fire at an Exeter theatre in 1887.  Until very recently this was a worldwide memorial as the greatest number of people killed in such a way.

One of the 2 chapels

... in front of which are 2 war memorials.  The standing white cross has the name from WWI, while the plaques on the floor are those from WWII

Jiffy and I will go back soon to find some of the other special areas, and memorials.

What a lovely spot.

How sad about the theatre fire.

And I am very happy to hear that you do not have a pulmonary embolism!

It is a lovely part of a lovely cemetery, as soon as we heard the numbers we realised that it was perfect for her (them)

I'm glad it's not a PE as well - although it would be nice to have answers as to why I am struggling!!

I personally think that you were exhausted to start with and the virus on top of the exhaustion, on top of the CFS has knocked you for six. Treat yourself gently and heal

Well more bloods today - for heart problems, but basically it's a case of rest and more rest.

Thank you for working things out for me, that makes so much sense. I am off work next week as well, so hopefully by the end of that I will be feeling a bit more like re-joining the world!

It's a lovely, peaceful place. I like how Jiffy works his way into most photos. He's a darling dog.

I was suprised when I looked at the photos how often Jiffy was looking at the camera!!
