the funeral yesterday went well. it was emotional of course and very moving. it was nice to see my cousins whom i haven't seen for ages. years in fact. my cousin from canberra is not well again. she had pancreas cancer. my daughter and family came. it was nice to see the g/kids. ants got quite emotional. today is my late husband's birthday, it's also Anzac day. a day that we remember the brave anzacs who gave their lives for their country. i didn't watch the march as i always cry and i'm already a bit emotional atm. instead, i went to the cemetery. (that sounds ridiculous i know) i took a small posy of wattle, rosemary and lavender with a few white daisies for everyone. it is usually a bit of a trek as i visit my parents' grave, my parents in law's and of course the husband. i can easily find mum and dad's grave and my pil are easy to find. no so my husband's grave. it's a bit of a thing with our family. i know where it is. i line it up with the gate and some trees but it always eludes me. so much so that i am ashamed to say i get quite pissed with it all. after looking for it for a good ten minutes i went to the office and found it on the computer and then printed out the location. i went to pil's grave and my parents and had calmed down enough to try to find it again, this time with directions. it still took a while. so let's hope that next time i visit his grave i'll be able to find it at least a bit faster than usual. of course, i didn't have my phone with me so didn't take photos. i expected a lot more people to be there as it's usually a busy day. enjoy your public holiday where ever you are, i doing the usual washing, cleaning and watching shirley bassey videos on youtube.
