Had to make an emergency dash up to Northampton yesterday, a 7-hour round trip, for OH to sign some important paperwork to do with the funeral arrangements....apparently he was the only one authorised to do so. And, guess what, when we got there we were told it could have been done via email....sigh. I'm just letting that go, no sense in dwelling on it.
At least now the funeral arrangements are made - 2 weeks' time though, I wish it could have been done before, but no matter, the end is in sight.
Both of us are shattered today, as well as the physical tiredness from yesterday, the strain of everything is taking its toll emotionally as well. We are going on holiday a few days after the funeral.....obviously the holiday was planned months ago, but it couldn't have come at a better time, we will be so ready for it and so thankful that we can go away. We've scrimped and saved for this holiday for weeks and weeks, the fuel money is all saved and we will be taking most of our food with us too. I've been saving my Sainsbugs reward points for months, so we'll do a shop there just before we go. I'll be cooking and freezing meals to take with us too from now on (well, from tomorrow when I've got some energy back!) - we've got a big cool box to pack everything in, the frozen meals and milk will help keep everything cool.
It's lovely and sunny and warm today, so will sit in the garden and read this afternoon. Poor OH has to go to work.....he drives artics for a living so really could have done without 7 hours driving on his day off, bless him. He's going to try and get an early finish, if he can.....sod's law will be that he's given a long run to do!
