We buried my mother in the same grave as her mother.

The funeral was bloody awful. Not least because we had to sit on my father's head until the ambulance came and took him to the psych ward.

It was a great relief, quite frankly, though I'm very glad my mother didn't see it. The funeral was a catalyst of course but it would've happened sooner or later anyways.

I'm very much looking forward to the calming affects of walkies on Friday.

Spike, honey, I can't even begin to imagine how awful it has been for you. Wish I could give you a hug.

Geez Spike... I'm really sad to hear that... I feel for you mate - I hope you're able to take time out to look after yourself too!

Spike said...

Thank you all for your sympathy. It helps.

The whole family is feeling rather bewildered. We are all popping off to the doctor for a check-up so there's no more nasty surprises.
