There's no fun in funeral

Sadly, my Nanan died last Tuesday we had her funeral on Friday.

She lived all the way up in North Wales, Anglesey to be precise. In order to get there on time I had to leave at about 7 in the morning. It's roughly 330 miles, mostly motorway and it rained heavily most of the way. It took me around 5/6 hours. Pretty good time in the wet.

There really are some idiots on the road,they were driving far too fast considering the conditions. I really don't care if they end up killing themselves, but it's other road users and passengers don't have a say. Idiots!

The funeral went well, although it rained throughout. It was good to see the rest of the family as we tend not to meet up that often. Weddings and funerals mostly. My Nan was 94 when she died, I think that's pretty good. I'm glad I went up to see her in April, i'll miss her.

I'll also miss the house. It looks as though the family is going to sell up so there will be no more trips up to Rhosneighr (Anglesey). Steve worked out a few years back that we've both spent more than a year of our lives there. 2 weeks over the summer holidays, another week in the spring / autumn and a few days either side of Christmas each year really adds up.

I think I will go back at some point as it really is a nice place. I'd like to show April the old crabbing rock and the beautiful beaches.
