Well, about an hour after my last buoyant blog entry I heard that my Nan had died. She was buried today. It is unbearably hard being away from family at this time. I love her and I miss her. I can't say any more.
However, after a horribly sad week, there was better news....just an hour or so before my Nan's funeral, my sister in law went into labour, and gave birth a very short time later to a beautiful boy. I feel so very sad and so very happy all at once. I look forward to meeting this new family member soon! Right now, I'm going to have a well earned glass or two of wine.
