Left the decorating, and got out the stamps. Started with this, it took my mind off everything.
My pattern stamp kit is on its way! It could arrive tomorrow, which would be nice.
More decluttering today. The housing officer needed some proof of ID, and other stuff, so that forced me to sort out my paperwork. Everything is now neat and tidy, and can be found, which makes a change. I'm realising how stressful caring was, you don't realise at the time, you just get on with it, but then you have no energy or time for anything else. Even if I put time aside for things like paperwork then something would always crop up.
I made myself a roast dinner tonight, I'd not eaten much during the day and realised that I was quite hungry. So it was a roast chicken breast, roast spuds and veg, and very nice it was too! Meals are a battle, most of the time I don't feel like cooking, but I do make the effort. The roast tonight was a good and bad idea, good because it was nice, bad because it was one of the last meals I'd cooked for mum, and which she'd really enjoyed. She hadn't been eating much, but she had made a real effort to eat that night. Most of the stuff in the freezer is sorted out for two people, just have to use it up, then it will be easier.
And of course there was 'that' funeral, I found it nauseating, how many services does one dead woman need in order to rest in peace? The whole thing was OTT, and it was our money being wasted, the government have so far refused to say how much has been spent. She was not in the league of Churchill or Atlee, she espoused the very methodism I rejected, as did the rest of my family. Meanwhile they are cutting funding cancer drugs, cutting the NHS budget, and attempting to privatise it by the back door.
On that note... off to get a glass of wine.
