Well I wouldn't mind if I had been enjoying myself, as the saying goes. Actually we have had a rough few weeks.
The day after my last post was my Father in Laws Birthday. His 86th Birthday actually. Early that morning we had a panicky phone call from my Mother in Law. My Husband and I rushed around to their home, only to find that he had died during the night. It was all very sad and from that point on our feet haven't really touched the ground. Once the police and coroner had been dealt with that day, the enormity of the situation began to sink in. We worked our way through all the various procedures and red tape, informing everyone as needed, arranging the funeral and of course looking after my Mother in Law. She and her husband of almost 60 years had always been inseparable, two halves of a whole person so to speak.We wondered how (if) she would manage.
Well we had our problems and a lot more time and support was needed than before, but once we got her eating again she started to rally round, she was actually coping better than we had thought.
The only problem was her health was deteriorating, her long standing heart problem was getting worse. To cut the story short, 10 weeks to the day from my Father in Law's death my Mother in Law has joined him. Again our life has gone on hold to sort everything out all over, only this time it is more as we now have to dealt with the house and all the contents too. Here we go again!
In addition to all this mayhem I have had my facial Mohs surgery for skin cancer done. Quiet an unpleasant experience, but I am pretty happy with the result and the scar is healing well so far.
Well that is me all caught up, apart from the few cards I have managed to make....barely keeping up with family birthdays really...
