Today is spent dealing with paperwork relating to my mum’s passing on Monday, and arranging her funeral.
So, after a quick walk around the village hall playing field with the dog, I head over to Stalham to pick my younger brother up, and we drive to North Walsham to the registrar’s office to register mum’s death. Then we are off to Cromer to complete the necessary paperwork at the funeral directors’ office. Finally we pay a visit to the crematorium, just so that my brother can be reassured that it’s a fitting place for mum’s final journey.
I drop my brother off in Stalham and return to Southrepps just in time to walk the dog before it’s completely dark.
My wife’s two sons, their fiancees and children pay us a visit this evening, armed with bags of fish and chips from the local chippy in Roughton.
