Not to mention expensive! Who knew it could be so damned expensive to die? It's making me start planning for my own demise. Long story short, we lost my mother in law on Boxing Day, so we didn't really have a Christmas to speak of (she went in Christmas Eve). My wife is struggling with the whole lot (as I'd expect, it's her mum at the end of the day, and she was a diamond), and I'm helping where I can. Some days it gets to me, some days it doesn't, and by get to me I mean the loss. I've been back to work this week, but have been 'functioning' rather than working to my full capacity. Blargh.
