Here is what has kept me busy for the past few weeks and kept me away from blogging.
I made this
I sold this
I consulted on this (my first deceased estate consultation)
I listed these on ebay. My Nan has recently moved into an aged care facility after a stroke some months ago. We have begun the task of helping her sort a life time of treasures. Some I have been lucky to receive but some have to be sold to help cover the costs of her care. We have been blessed to have her join us in all the decisions about what should be done with what. I plan on writing a more detailed blog dedicated to my beautiful Nan later on this year.
I farewelled a dear friend who lost his brave fight with brain cancer. Craig and his lovely wife Kathryn and their two sons have been very good friends since meeting them as fellow parents in our son's prep year at school almost 4 years ago. He was an amazing Husband, Father and community member. Nothing was ever too much and he was the first one to put his hand up when help was required. He was a big kid, a big larrikin and a much loved man. Having well over 300 people at his funeral is a testament to the man he was. RIP Craig we will always be there for Kathryn, Jackson & Bailey.
It is now school holidays here and my son, Clay is trialling a new medication so it has been a big adjustment. My daughter has been quite stressed also. Having an autistic brother can be like living in a war zone for her. I of course deal with most things by shutting down. Have been feeling very withdrawn lately and everyday I get out of bed is a bonus. But, I am rallying and realising that hey really you have a husband and your kids have a Dad so suck it up.
Til next time, Laura
