what a day

Today was my grandpa’s funeral.

I will miss him.

A lot.

Today my sister-in-law gave birth to her second child, another little girl.

What a day.

  • that is so sad, I am sorry πŸ™

    and also happy at the same time with the baby!

  • I’m sorry to hear about your grandpa. I hope you have many great memories to keep you company.

  • sorry to hear about your grandfather, hope you are doing ok.

    (congrats to your sis in law though πŸ™‚

  • yeah it’s a bit like that!

  • cheers. I have loads of memories and the funeral was really good too because I learnt a lot more about his life from other peoples speeches

  • Life and Death certainly put a lot of things in perspective, like, stressing over work and sewing sequins! ^_^

    Hi Astrid, it’s Jo

    Sorry to hear about your grandad. I know how you’re feeling, I’ve had many close family deaths within the past 6 years, the hardest to deal with being my daddy. It made me realise to really appreciate the time you have with the people you have, never take anything for granted. Looking over old photos when the time is right is a lovely thing to do and it will make you smile remembering the times.

  • Thanks Jo ^_^
    I’m so sorry to hear you lost your Dad. πŸ™
    You’re right though. My grandpa was very loved, had a great life and would have been 90 this year! So he had a good innings.
