Farewell to the First

I really do not feel that I could let this recent event pass without saying something. 
I am inherently interested in women's history and history was made by this woman. 
This post is not about policies, picket lines or poll tax.  

It is in remembrance of a woman who, in the centenary year of a Suffragette dying under the hooves of a hurtling horse ensuring women's suffrage in the UK was noticed, has passed away. A woman who not only celebrated the vote but won enough of them to become Prime Minister three times over. 

I wonder what the Pankhurst's would have made of the situation in 1979 as a woman entered No 10 Downing Street as not only the leader of a party, but of a nation. A woman who has, today, been given a ceremonial funeral. 

I hope they would have celebrated as I do. They may not have agreed with her policies or tactics. They may have backed her to the hilt. Either way, like me, I believe they would have been proud of the determined journey she took to get there.

Margaret Thatcher

  5. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
