For the kind words.
I am in limbo just now waiting for all the paperwork to come through. We have chosen the funeral and are going for a simple format as there will not be many there and I think it is what dad would want. He left no clear instructions other than cremation and where to put his ashes.
There is so much to do it makes my head spin. Not until the funeral is over can I move forward.
I am keeping busy. I have stripped and cleaned the walk in larder, removing out of date stuff and thinning out the shelves so I can see what I have. I have asked P to put another layer of shelves at the bottom as I would like to put the maslin pan, stock pot etc in there. They are too big for my dressers.
I also want to clear a corner of my still unfinished kitchen to put a small breakfast table and two chairs in place. I will search the second hand furniture shops for these.
The home made washing up liquid did not lather and P was not happy with it so I have an eco brand of wash up and dishwasher stuff. It feels like a compromise but as P said this has to work properly!
The dogs have been very windy since changing their diet and it has not settled down with time as I thought it would. So we have gone back to their kibble. Another backward step but needs must.
I am getting on well with my crochet blanket but have yet to make a dress. I need my brain for sewing and it is strangely absent just now.
So at the moment it is a waiting game and I know life will resume as normal once this is over.


  1. Yes - a t times like this you just have to mark time until you suddenly find yourself back to normal. Best of luck.

  2. I've just read your last two posts - I'm really sorry to hear of your loss. It must be hard being that much further away too. I can empathise as my mother died on the 9th after a massive stroke. Let's hope our lives return to normal service very soon :)
