Today my brother and I have a meeting with the lady who will be officiating at mum’s funeral. So, after we have done all of the usual Sunday morning things, we drive over to my brother’s house in Stalham. The meeting goes really well, and the lady gives us some excellent pointers for writing the eulogy, which I am going to do over the next couple of days. I have a busy week ahead of me, because I have volunteered not only to write the eulogy, but also to design and print the orders of service, and to sort out the flowers to go on top of the coffin.
When we return home to Southrepps, I fill the log basket and light the woodburner while my wife walks the dog, and then send emails and text messages to various family members asking them for their memories of mum for inclusion in the eulogy.
My tremor, which had been fairly well controlled this week, is breaking through in my left leg a little more strongly today, so I self-medicate with some high THC cannabis oil that I was sent last week – very effective! I will try turning my DBS off (when I get a few hours to spare) and see if it is as effective as vaping the plant itself.
