Tuesday was my Grandma's funeral. Stuart took the day off work to look after the children, and Mum and I went to Northampton to say our farewells to Grandma. A sad day, one I was not looking forward to, as I still feel rather raw from the loss of Jean. Grandma was buried in a lovely green burial site (I love these places, they feel so alive), and they held a service of celebration afterwards, which was not exactly how I would have liked to say my goodbyes, but is what Grandma would have liked, so I guess that is what counts. I returned home to our visitors, and Tom disappeared with Luke and Stuart to the Warhammer club, whilst Denise and I chatted about knitting, spinning, crochet and all things woolly, plus she has come up with a solution to the crochet blanket problem, which I will attempt to sort out this next week! A lovely end to a busy, emotional day.
The rest of the week has been entertaining guests (Sophie was excellent at this!!), and all the usual stuff. But we have now reached half term (teacher training day today) and we can all breathe out and relax for a week.
