done


Well, that's done.

There were sixty people at the church, apparently. A large proportion of them came back to Ma's for tea and cake. It was kind of nice and kind of overwhelming. Now they've gone, I think that we all feel very drained and a bit numb. That's kind of part of the process, isn't it?

B and Aunt Edith are making toast for us all. Leo has gone to bed after a hard afternoon being admired by people and throwing up on his father's best suit.

I think I am ready to go home - probably Saturday.

  1. :-) Make the most of that numbness. I think it's nature's way of giving you a break after the initial shock of it all.
    Just let it all come up, in it's own good time, grief never looks like you think it will, you'll be feeling drained, numb, sad, happy, angry, nostalgic, peaceful, all kinds of things, some appropriate, some you might feel are not, but they all are.
    It's all ok, and won't go on forever. The 'normal' periods in between get more and get longer...
