She's Back on board - Toot Toot!
I only worked two days last week as Monday I had a rostered day off and on Tuesday my Grandpa passed away. Not exactly a shock but still really heart-wrenching.
I was back at work on Wednesday and Thursday (over 80 emails in my inbox and 13 voicemail messages!) trying to desperately to catch-up before having Friday off for the funeral.
The funeral was really lovely as far as funerals go. Lots of funny stories about Gramps, things that we'd all forgotten or that had moved to the back of the mind after the 8 years of illness. My Mum put together a really great slideshow of pictures of Gramps with Grandma and us grandkids. It was a real celebration of his life and the wonderful values he taught his family. We visited Grandma's plaque while we there and also Great-Grandma and Grandpa's plaques. It's nice to know they are all together now.
So I plan on getting back into blogging with a vengeance this week. I have a few things floating around in my head for posts and I need to reply to the lovely comments you've been leaving me.
I'll also have a Blog of Note post coming up to introduce you all to some of my lovely new followers and their blogs that I have been following.
Just had to share this pic of Gramps, my cousins and sister and I
