It was the man-shape’s gran’s funeral today. It was an early start to a long day. It was emotional. I’m exhausted.
Look after your families. Call someone you don’t talk to often. Sure, families can drive us nuts but we can also be good support for each other. Two wonderful gran’s gone have taught me that. My gran was a great one for family, in so many ways I hope she can’t see us now, she’d be furious with the lot of us. My partners gran also loved bringing her family together, it was one of her defining features. I’m going to call the gran I have left tomorrow (it’s way past her bedtime, lark that she is).
Families can be hard work, they can be frustrating but I’m pretty sure they are worth it.
