Home So Very Sweet Home

I have had a wonderful peaceful day doing very little while slowly reacquainting myself with my life.

The past ten days have been rough, very rough and I am sorry for not writing the blog but at the end of the day I was just too exhausted to do anything but eat supper, shower and go to bed.  My life was very basic and there was no joy.  I decided silence was the better option than endlessly whining on about the mammoth task we had.

Anywho, here I am back and almost ready for action.  I had a rest this afternoon.

This morning I went to see the Minions, and also to feed the old ladies. It was therapy for me and I left with a smile on my face, giggling about just how silly they all are. I also hugged everyone whether they wanted to be hugged or not.

Once home, I gathered in all the haynets ready to be filled later. Haakon and his friends were pleased to see me.

But, best of all, Lambie let me hug him….. twice. A miracle. Earlier Maggie had come racing up to me to say hello, which was sweet.

Dear ‘Ster was around too.

Home sweet home.

    Having cleaned out several family members homes, I know all too well the sheer exhaustion at the end of the day. But you and your sister did the hard work, so now you can sit down and hug whom ever you need to. It is good to see all the various Shetland faces.

    The process of going through another person’s possessions is incredibly hard, and unless you’ve done it yourself then you cannot understand.

    I remember the first time I had to go through someone’s things after they had died; items they had cared for and collected, stuff they valued. It is incredibly hard, wearing, draining, and stays with you.

    Rest up, take care, and let the animals heal you.

    I concur with the other comments but I did wonder, Francis, if you might have ended up hiring a big van to bring home with you the treasures you couldn’t bear to leave behind!

    I’m sure all the family, animals and human, were delighted to have you home.

    I’m glad you are home and it’s done.
    I think it isn’t so much the object sorting it’s the memories and emotions they raise that exhausts.
