Some of you may remember that Murphymole and I met the lovely Miramaze on a number of occasions. The last one was when Mara was finalising the sale of her mum's house in Yorkshire and we were given charge of Erik Lambi. Little did we know that this would be the last time we would spend together.
Mara first called us her angels when we drove up from Nottingham to Bradford one dark evening after sensing (via blog) that she was feeling low. We shared a fish and chip supper in her mum's cellar kitchen and then drove back to Nottingham.
As you may know, Mara's funeral is being held in Sweden on Friday 18th September. Gillian and I will not be travelling to Sweden but have decided to spend the day celebrating Mara's life. We thought long and hard about where we should go. At first we thought of lunch at the wine bar where we first met Mara and decided that wasn't such a good idea. We finally decided to spend a couple of nights in Yorkshire and will be meeting up the day before the funeral so that we can spend the full day and evening of the 18th together and sharing our memories. It will no doubt be a day of tears and laughter.
Little did we know when we booked our accommodation that the Inn reputably has a resident ghost so there may be more than Mara's spirit at the celebratory supper!
