Saying The Final Goodbye To My Lovely Dad

Death is like the rumble of a distant thunder at a picnic - W.H Auden
Today is for saying goodbye to my lovely dad.
 Rain wasn't forecasted today....
I enjoyed a much needed hug and cup of tea↓
 I gave everyone sloppy 💋💋💋
As I left house,
It started to rain :(
 
 Today's tree shot↓
 As it was World Book Day.
All the kids came to school dressed as book characters.
Harry Potters,Cats in the Hats, and 5 boys on scooters arrived wearing green tutus.
They said "They were the Boys In The Dresses!"
 Most of the cars were stopping....
I survived!
Filled up Sexy Beast.
Back home.
 
 Coffee and nibble.
My hubby arrived with his dad.
They were going to my dad's funeral.
I wasn't, due to a hot head Prodigal son who wouldn't hesitate to lamp me!
I was going to wave my dad goodbye as he left his house, followed by me delivering my flowers to his grave.
I kiss my hubby 💋
Off to say goodbye.
While I waited, the green bins were being emptied,as the same time as the hearse arrived at my dad's house.
 All ready to go↓
I wave goodbye to my dad.
The service lasts for an hour.
I have things to do...
Nips to the doctors↓

While everyone was at the Wake.
I went round to my dad's grave to deliver my flowers to him and have a chat!
 
Hubby meanwhile went to the Wake↓
 
 Food↓
 
 
 
 
 
 
My late dad's lady friend didn't want my dad's dressing gown and slippers in her house.
"What do I want a man's dressing gown and slippers in my house for????" she laughed.
She wanted one of my brothers to collect them from her house asap.
I talked to my dad for a good 20 minutes at his grave.
 Then the heavens opened!
So much for no rain today!
Off to do my 🍭 job.
I crossed over the boys in their green tutus.
I survives.
Back home to talk to hubby and father-in-law.
Get changed.
Off to Happy Place Of Work.
Nice music to work to↓
I gets back to sort out tea and chat with my father-in-law.
Pie and chips time!
I say goodbye to my father-in-law.
Off to final job of the day↓
