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!'
