Hi to all those i've missed! thinking of you and hoping you're well!
So yes we've had a terrible few weeks! Grandma (mums mum) going last Saturday night (14th) just after midnight. mum and I were with her at the time so she wasn't alone and neither was mum. watching her pass is something i'll never forget. We then went to the viewing the night before the funeral and I wasn't affected by that at all.....in fact i got to see her looking the best i've seen her in a long time. she looked really really nice and just peaceful. The night before her funeral tho little C got tonisilitis and was up screaming all night and we got 1 hour sleep in total. just meant that DH had to miss out on the funeral and stay home with C all day and poor C cried all day. I have such awesome friends tho who took DH some dinner that night while i had dinner out with my family after the funeral. The funeral (burial) was finished off with my cousin playing the piano accordian and singing and italian song (nanna used to love being around them with the piano accordian and singing). was an awesome touch to the day!
During last week we were told my uncle had only days to live (dads brother). He had health issues all throughout life but towards the end he copped cancerous tumor on his bladder which took him. So while thinking about one funeral (grandmas) we were watching another family member go. He went 7am sunday morning and his funeral will be this friday. so 2 deaths/funerals within a week of each other has been a bit much but they're now in peace.
So after all this is over DH and I and C are heading away for 4 nights to my grandparents (well now shared between my father and his remaining siblings) holiday house just outside ardrossan. no-one was allowed to use it while my dads mum was still alive (she went last year) but now she's gone, it's been cleaned up and made ready to use again. so no-one was allowed to use it for 9 years between my grandpas and grandmas deaths! now it's ready for use again so we will be making use of it to get away! I wonder if C will get the hint of 'holiday' and sleep in til at least 8am!
Anyway, wow, what an essay! thanks for reading! Hope you're all well!
Shy...again, thinking of you! i know too well how sad family losses are. hugs hugs hugs hugs!
