I emailed...

I-t-B and the She-Ex, to let them know about the inquest date being at least potentially sorted. I just wanted to keep them both in the loop really. It took me ages to word this carefully and in, I hope, the least offensive manner.


Dear I-t-B and She-Ex

I have been given a possible date for the inquest as the end of November. I should get an idea of an official date in the next couple of weeks. Following this, a death certificate will be issued. I will make sure that I send you both a copy if you still require it. Obviously I don't want to send you one if you don't *need* it, as they are upsetting documents to possess.

I hope that you are both well, and that the children are all well, and that BG has been appreciating the updates via the blog. I will be updating the blog again after the Year service, and with anything that AC would like BG to know.

We are both managing fine, although I am looking into bereavement counselling for AC to forestall any issues. He misses Rich so much, but finds his Memory Box a great help. He is doing well at school, wobbly at times, but has an unofficial Care Plan in place which is working well.

If you have any questions about anything this end, then please let me know and I will do what I can to answer them.



Now they know what I know!

Calm and chilled

Today I have....

...sorted out Rich's phone - it was either I did it or they sent the bill to the She-Ex. Tempting as it was to throw another one her way, it was unnecessary this time lol!

... upgraded the price plan on mine and discovered when my upgrade is. 3 weeks! But I love this phone. However, it's getting a little tired now, so maybe.... maybe...

... had a sight test, and arranged new glasses. Obviously I'm no longer NHS for them, but that's ok, I managed it. I only had to pay half today and half when I pick them up. That's 2 pairs of glasses for 2 x £184. If I write it like that, it's so much less money!

... consoled myself after a difficult morning with buying material. Yeah. I'm upset about spending money, so I spend more. Well, tbh, I wasn't upset, I needed them, (I cannot live forever with glasses held together with thread!) so probably I just indulged myself. But hey.

... looked for, and found, lots of flat surfaces in the house! Hurrah!

... made plans for AB and lovely K to come tomorrow. We are all very excited.

... bought things from Boots. Hormonally challenged as I am, I have the worlds largest spots on my back. It'll settle. I'll probably go back on the pill, tbh. I'm not going to be doing of the do with anyone, but a bit of regularity might be nice! Dr's on Monday for both of us, then Wednesday for AC for chest clinic.

... made banana cake.

Not a bad day!
