A big thank you to all of you who have sent me hugs,sparkles and prayers, whether via this blog,Facebook or email.
They are all very much appreciated. I'm sorry I'm just not up to individual replies at the moment - still feeling numb and very, very tired.
The funeral (cremation) will take place in Durham on Monday morning.
All being well I will be home by Tuesday evening with all my boys (DS is travelling up from Bristol on Sunday). That will be weird as ,by then, I'll have been away for five weeks - I just hope for some normality.
We've had to start clearing the house - Dad has lived here for 55 years and even though we did some sorting when my Mum died (2002) there is still soooo much "stuff". Sorting through it has brought back lots of memories - for some reason all my school reports (from Infants to A level) have been kept - they made very interesting reading!lol
We're going down to Dad's local tonight to organise the after funeral tea - though I have a feeling it will be a proper wake.
Until next week.
