DH finished the eulogy eventually yesterday and emailed it to MIL's GD Just in time too as he sent us the intended service plan and was asking our opinion on poems and music. DH is going to meet with him and the service coordinator tonight I don’t feel it’s my place to attend but will go if DH wants me there.
I remember both my parents’ services negatively; they knew so few people and both services felt cold. They were conducted at the same crematorium as where we’re going to on Monday so it fills me with dread for a very selfish and personal reason on top of my sadness for MIL
I spent yesterday over at MIL's cleaning all the appliances in the kitchen, wiped down all the surfaces and the floor ready for SIL's stay. She should be here early Friday and we found a health food shop in Whitton that should supply all her “weird” needs ha-ha.
The place felt empty and cold; it could have been any pensioner’s place, it seemed old and musty, sort of like MIL’s “character” had left. But I felt uneasy moving a few pieces around to make room for SIL, so I just tidied. Mads will hopefully feel at home and the beds are all made (she has a choice of three) and I’ve laid out some towels in the bathroom……….so all set.
Today I have a hair appt. Just a trim but at least I can have a laugh with the girls in the salon and have some me time!
Other than that, oh and a superset this morning (naturally) I have a free day! Feels strange……….but I like it
