R.I.P Nan

My Nan died yesterday after being admitted to hospital on Tuesday,my Dad called me on Wednesday to say she was dying but not to go up as she wouldn't even know I was there and today I found a feather outside my front door which I have always been told is a sign from someone who's died.I like to believe it anyway.
I went out with my friend yesterday as planned and had a few drinks (1 for Nan,even though she didn't drink) and lots of food which I think was the best way to handle it cos otherwise I get too upset and wallow in it,this way I could handle it,and P is like a sister to me so she knows how to be with me when I'm upset.


I am adding some Nan-type things she used to say to us,that won't mean anything to anyone else but made us laugh

'yam saft'-she was from the Black Country and it took me and my brothers years to work out what she meant!

'have some cake,go on,have some cake'
-we'd reluctantly eat it then she'd say 'Don't eat it all save some for everyone else!'

I am so sorry to hear about your nan. It's heartbreaking isn't it?
You suddenly remember things that happened years ago and it makes you smile.
I have heard before about feathers when someone dies, it's meant to be their way of telling you they are safe on the other side.
All the best.
