Fraught.

Hi Everyone.
Thankyou so much for the kind thoughts & wishes from all of you.
As funerals go, my beloved Aunt's was one of the 'best'. My brother read the Eulogy, & did a damn fine job of it.
His voice is made for public speaking, we are thinking of renting him out for such occasions.

It was bittersweet, as such occasions always are, & quite harrowing in a lot of respects. My Beloved Brother travelled with me to visit elderly rellies, & the awful thought was present that I may never get that chance again.

It was lovely to catch up with new little members of the family & have hugs & cuddles, kisses.

And a very special visit & magic day spent with my Best Friend J, & her beautiful granddaughters. I swear, kids these days are so gorgeous they make your heart bleed.

Another magic day spent with a special niece, & her beautiful daughters, & a great Nephew.

I have a house of guests, so I won't be posting in depth for a while, but I am safely back in Gom's care. There is a tale to tell about that too, but it will have to wait. I will blog about it at some stage.

Honey & Leo gave the type of greeting one dreams of, too, so all is ok in this corner of the world.

Again, Thankyou for all your kindness, & thoughts.

I will post once the dust of "hectic" all settles.

I feel I need a good racking railing gnashing slobbering cry- the dam has not burst yet, but I am sure it will.

Hi Meggie and welcome back (actually, that statement could apply to when you came over here too! Sorry about the cricumstances). It can be exhausting at these times can't it? Every second year we visit brisbane to catch up with my husband's family and each time we leave I have that thought of "this could be the last time...." as his parents are in their 80s. Be kind to yourslef and take each day at a time. "Hugs"

XOXO

Glad to see you are home safely. I came by earlier today as I felt you must be back. I'm glad everything went well for the funeral, and you got to see family and friends.
I look forward to your posting again. I have missed you.
hugs

Bren said...

Welcome home! I know you were missed by many (me included), but so happy you were able to see some relatives. I can almost hear your brother's voice, as pictures you have posted make him appear to have a wonderful tone. That soothing baratone that sends a calm to all who hear it.
((((hugs)))) my friend!

As long as you breathe, she exists.

She is part of you and in you, like the threads in a Persian carpet. When you speak of her, she is there.


Great to have you back. Drive somewhere and cry in the car, facing a good view. That's what i do.

Stomper Girl said...

Glad to see you back. If you need help unleashing the damwaters, may I suggest Steel Magnoias and a glass of wine.

Hugs xx

I hope you take the time to let all the dust settle. And do your necessary things, to come to closure. In your own time and at your own pace.

Hugs,

Welcome back Meggie. I have certainly missed you, your blog and your comments on my blog. Glad you had a good visit with your relatives, but sorry it was under such unfortunate circumstances.

Tanya said...

Welcome back. I'm eager to hear of the tale with GOM.

Kellie said...

Good to have you back. You sound better ...

Reluctant Blogger said...

Oh good you are back. I missed your blogposts - always such a wonderful mixture of the unexpected, just like the way people think, hopping from one thing to the next. I love that.

As for the crying - yeah it'll come when you least expect it and then there will be no stopping it. But those snot-snorting cries when you feel all fluid is draining out of your body from your eyes and nose are the best.

Take care of yourself.

Hi Meggie,
Very sorry you had to make the journey across the water. It's so hard to make those sad journeys isn't it.

Peace, Perfect Peace.

So glad to have you back, I've missed your posts so much. Enjoy your visitors and see back in blogland soon.

When the dam bursts may it give you the catharsis you need, my friend.

leslie said...

Here's a box of hankies - go ahead and use 'em all up. You need a good cry. One of my best friends just lost her Dad last week and I'm ready and able to hold her up when "her" dam bursts. Wish I could be there for you! Look forward to hearing all your other news.
