I would like to thank everyone for the love and support they have shown when my husband died so unexpectedly. I got so many Goodies and Private Messages, and messages on my SparkPage that it is impossible for me to respond individually.
I am doing o.k., altho' I still hear his little truck come and leaving me wondering why he hasn't come to the house ....... and then I remember! And the number of times I have seen him walking in the street in town ...... once again then I remember! It can be cruel how the mind can play these tricks on us!
My grandson has been with me most the time. It is good because it enables us to both talk about him if we need to, and just to share each other's company without conversation. My daughter and son-in-law have been out a few times, and my son-in-law has mown the lawn twice. It is hot and humid so the grass has been growing flat tack.
The night after his funeral, someone egged the house. My grandson heard the whack on the wall at night. We went out and found egg shell on the path and dripping yolk and egg white on the path, in the garden and on the wall. The next day I found two more patches where eggs had been hurled above the windows. Hubby and I had heard what we thought were stones being thrown at us a couple weeks earlier, and a few days before that, too! I phoned the Police to see if others had had the same thing happening in our village, but no-one had reported it. I wouldn't worry too much, but my little grandson has life-threatening allergies to many things, including egg, and he only has to touch a bit to be affected. It means that he will have to wear shoes here, and it is hot and summer!
I have very slowly been getting back on the message boards, but at the moment I am finding my concentration isn't there much, altho' having said that, my heart is definitely with you all.
I have been sorting out the various things that need to be done re finances, Insurance etc. I have an appointment with WINZ (our Social Services Agency) for 9th January, to go on a Widow's Benefit. It is the same day I have to go to the Dentist. The morning of my husband's funeral I broke part of a lower/back tooth and some of the filling came out, so after the funeral and lunch, a Dentist did a temporary repair at no charge.
