Sunday at my place


Here it is Sunday afternoon, yesterday I didn't bother opening the computer, when I got home it was around 3pm and I felt so tired that all I wanted to do was go and have a nap which I did after the nap I didn't feel like doing much of anything so I did nothing.

This morning I was up at 7am I heard the tv going in the lounge room and thought it was later in the morning and that Jessica must had been here but I was wrong it was Tim he left for work a few minutes later.

I checked the casserole and turned it back on for a couple of hours ready for lunch there was only me and Jessica here for lunch and casserole is her favourite meal. I also watched the girls while Kathy and Michael went out to find Sydney-May's birthday present, Summer ate a fair amount of the casserole but Sydney-May only had a few grapes.

The funeral was good, I shed a few tears it was mum who was emotional but Aunty Nita was mum's favourite aunt so that is to be expected. Afterwards there was a wake at the bowling club which was great all in all it was a nice day, we spent the night at a local motel one of the cheap motels but a nice one anyway.

Friday night I had a so so sleep took me a while to settle down and I was woken during the night by dad who was having a coughing fit and was not well at all. In fact on Saturday morning he didn't want to wake up but of course he had too, mum drove to Macca's for breakfast and then she drove out to the cemetery at Wauchope, we went to put flowers on mum's grandparents graves.

Now days mum prefers to use artificial flowers over fresh flowers and have to agree they last longer and look nice so much better then seeing a lot of dead flowers left on graves.


This afternoon I am watching Great British Bake Off it is a favourite Sunday afternoon show for me.

Pleasing to note you are back home and safe after your journey.
I too use artificial flowers for my parents grave.

The British baking show is on our public television now. I think I would enjoy it, but I haven't had time to watch it. I hope it shows up on Netflix Streaming. It's so much easier for me to watch things on there.

Love,
Janie

Dearest Jo-Anne,
Glad you made it back home safe with your Parents after an emotional funeral. Never easy and that's also what wears you out.
Rest up and feel better for a new week to tackle.
Hugs,
Mariette

Just another Saturday and Sunday ... Not. I'm glad your trip went well. I hear your mom about artificial or fresh flowers. 😊

Rita said...

I've never seen that show but heard it was pretty good.
I hope your dad is okay!

All in all a good way to spend Sunday except for having to say goodbye to a loved one.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Me too, yes I'm home and doing the normal daily things

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I do too, life is back to normal

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes life is back to normal but it was a nice break away anyway

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes it did and now I am back to the norm

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Dad is still not good but mum is there to keep and eye on him

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

So true

I often feel that way after a long nap. If I keep it short, to say 20 minutes, I do find, but much longer and I'm a slug for the rest of the day :)

We buried close friends this past year. It's never easy.

Take care.

Dearest Jo-Anne,
Following you as loyal as I can and also commenting and waiting for your reply but there is NO telling by all those emails, which one is addressed at me.
So why don’t you mention the person’s name so we can delete all the others?
It sure would help with all my emails and time schedule...
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Sounds like a good day doing just what you wanted to do. What I wouldn't give to have one show I could binge watch all day. Seems there's nothing good on tv lately....

Update on mum

After getting up this morning and throwing a load of washing on to wash I get a phone call from Sandra just as I was thinking of ringing...
