A sad post today. I am sorry I have been sniping and snarly around the land lately but it has been a difficult time around here,
Finally after over forty years of her wishing for it and forty years of my brother and I fighting it, mum has passed away. The last year has been truly awful for her, and the last few weeks have been a nightmare. In all honesty I can feel nothing but relief, so much suffering over the years has finally ended for her.
As most of you know mum has been living n the same nursing home as my parent's in law (both in their 90s) and to top off this week, as my mum lay dying the weather decided to wreak havoc on us all and threaten to flood the place. Plans were put in place behind the scenes ( That means not telling the oldies) to evacuate if necessary and we waited.
Yesterday morning I returned to the home to break my sad news to his parents and right in the middle of calming down a crying mil I was asked to pack a bag as they were off!
Now this went down like a lead balloon, my fil ( dementia not withstanding) decided this was a great adventure , mil not so much ( that there is the biggest understatement of I have ever made!) :(
Three hours later and they were moved to safety.
It is now the following day and nothing has happened as yet but I am seriously thinking of just keeping my head down and hiding.
Yes, that's it exactly!
I sincerely hope you are all having a great week, if so could you please blog about it as I wish to live vicariously through you all this week . Just saying......
