Now I know everything we say here is confidential (at least to the point of not telling other family members what we've said) but I really do need to just say, that now my Aunt is on my Facebook I can't be as open there with certain things so just be aware of that


The funeral is on Friday (February 11th).  My mum is the Executor of the will and she has done a beautiful job.  The funeral is being paid for out of their (mums and her sisters) inheritance and she's spent about ?2,500-?3,000 so far.  We're giving her the best send off you can imagine.  She's going to be taken from her house (where she's lived for roughly 46 years) through the town to the Church is a horse drawn carriage with my mum and aunt walking directly behind, then myself and my cousin, and then my dad and aunt's husband.  My mums giving a speech, and nan's being buried with my grandfather.  And my nan has a cat called Toffee who is really sick and could never be rehomed, so we're having her put to sleep (we can't take her and the animals homes won't take her because of her health) and we'll put her ashes next to my nan in the coffin.  It's just going to be beautiful.  My nan was terrified of death so mum said she's gonna give her the best send off she can and show her that it's nothing to fear.

I'll tell you something slightly odd, now we found out nan actually had a heart attack and had desease which she was unaware of so she wouldn't have known her time was coming.  So, we were at nans house last night and mum was just looking at the magazines nan had (which nan usually brought to me after a while) and she found this envelope with "ALL IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS P A BURRY" written in big marker pen.  And it had almost everything mum needed for the solictor and it was left in an easy to find place.  And what is even odder about that envelope was that there was a sticker written on it with a name and address on it, the name was "Mr E R Burry".  That's my Grandad, Edward Roderick Burry, he died over twenty years ago.  Oh and also, my nan had a heart attack and was found at the bottom of the stairs, my Grandfather died of a heart attack and was found at the bottom of the stairs in the same place.

And now, after the funeral there's gonna be one all mighty fight going on between the two "tribes" in our family.




How is everyone doing?

What's going to happen to her house? Are you selling it?

Sounds really great to have her taken in a horse drawn carriage! And it's so good that you could bury her with your grandfather and her cat, I am sure that means a lot to her!

My grandmother spoke about making a similar envelope, just in case. I think it is a very smart thing to do! I wonder what the thing about the sticker was, though! Hm. She probably had a thought about that too.

Awww! Maybe he missed her?

My grandmother died six years and one week after my grandfather, the year she turned 80. I think some things just are meant to be like that.

Ooh, you got a "two-tribe" family? I feel your pain. I hope she wrote a good will, or else will there surely be some huge fights. I hate that >_<
My aunt ran around my grandmother's house with post-it-notes and put them on all the things she wanted. I took the liberty to move a few of those

I'm good. Going to Oslo/Drammen next week from Monday evening (night train down) to Friday. Job training!

And I've finally made myself a new set!

How are you?

Mum looked at the sticker and said "That's my dad" and I said "Didn't he die, like, 25 or so years ago?" Without missing a beat she said "Mum didn't like to throw anything away".  Now I know where I get it from!

Well, my nan last re-wrote her will in 2001 and left everything to her partner (who marched her up there and made her leave everything to him) but he died in 2002, I think.  So now everything goes to mum and my aunt.  BUT, mum is the Executor of the will which means my aunt is only a beneficiary.  Nothing can happen without mums say so.  My tribe (the "emotional" tribe) really wants the house, so we're gonna try our hardest to get the money together to buy my aunts half of the house (roughly ?50-60,000).  Nan and Grandad are the only people who have ever lived in that house, they bought it new.  Nan wanted to leave the house to mum but mum said no because then my aunt would be able to take mum to court (so that the house gets sold).  So we're asking, nan, Grandpa Tommy and Grandpa Ted (both my mums dads) to help us over it all.

That is exactly what the other tribe did!  My aunt, her partner, and my cousin are part of the "Financial" tribe.  The day, the exact same day my nan died my cousin and aunts partner went through my nans house and were looking for any hidden money, saying they were taking the fridge and such!  My cousin even cleared out the food in the fridge!  I mean, I know that nan isn't gonna be eating the food now but seriously!  It's gotten to the point where mum is having to bring nans jewelry home so that Jen and Terry (cousin and aunts partner) can't take it and sell it.  It's disgusting.

Oh yes!  I forgot to congratulate you on your job!!

I'm good thanks, just not looking forward to the funeral but I've been watching Rent, House, and [i]Dead Poet's Society[//i] a lot lately.

I wish people just would be nice to eachother!

Hope you get to keep the house!

Thank you

I like and dislike funerals at the same time. I always go like "Well, why didn't you tell him/her when he/she was alive, then?!" 

Well, I've seen worse movie/series choices

We're totally hooked on Bones. Got four seasons, soon done with the fourth. We watched eight episodes last night

I'm kinda the same, but I'm also kinda guilty of it too.  Like, I loved my nan but you know, I could've been more patient.  But at the same time, she came into my life rather late so.  This is what I think about every family, we all could have been nicer to each other but at the same time the other person was at fault too.  It's not fair to say it's all one persons fault.  We all have a part in these things.  I also get annoyed when people start lying with things like "Oh she was such an Angel, couldn't think of a bad thing to say about her".  As if.  I'm not saying speak ill of the dead but don't lie either, that's just as disrespectful.  Be honest.  My nan and I didn't have a great relationship.  But she is my nan, she is part of me, I carry her genetics, I am part of her legacy.  Does any of the make sense?

You know what is bad, if you look at all my DVDs there is a guy I fancy (or did fancy) in every frickin' one

I've never actually seen Bones, I want to thoufh, it looks like my sort of show.

True, true!

Haha, that's pretty impressive! You're a good collector

Oh my. I think I'm making the worlds largest cinnamon buns. They're enormous!

I think you would like it! It's more about the characters and stories between them than just solving murders in fancy ways

When I was about six one of my schoolmates was murdered and everyone at the school went on TV and said "He was never any trouble.  You never knew he was there."  If that's true then they knew another Rikki to me!  He was a troublemaker.  A sweet boy knowing what I know now but he was trouble.

Ah you know me, I've got my priorities right

I'll have to find a free online site to check it out (we don't have the channel it airs on )

I think people's minds go into a "Now I'll just remember the good parts and only those" about a person.


Indeed you do!

Oooh, you really, really should! I LOVE it

So, what are you up to?

When I go I want people to say nice things as well as "But my God she could be a bitch!"

I'll have a look around for it now.

I am just watching British comedy sketch shows and talking to you and Mary   And about to block my cousin on Facebook.

Of course! I have to take pictures of them and post, because, I mean, seriously! They're so big!

I know what we'll have for dinner, to put it that way

And I know most of the lyrics now
