June Joys

June has been a bit of a weird one for me and I don’t know if I should call this ‘June Joys’. I’m grieving at the loss of my nan, but have had little time to process it.

Her funeral was a lovely but a sad occasion, I did a reading which I hope I made her proud even though I was shaking with nerves. Her wake was lovely, lots of memorable songs were played and the cakes were delicious. However, I’m still allowing myself to continue with life as she would have wanted me to. Work has been super busy, which is a bit of a distraction away from everything that’s going on.

There were many events and things that were joyful through-out June.

  • Tori’s hen do in Oxford (at the end of May)
  • Work’s Summer Social – We went axe throwing and had burgers at Honest Burgers
  • Emily & Adam’s engagement party
  • Seeing grandad often
  • Jubilee local celebrations
  • Chilling in the hot tub
  • A lot of beauty splurging (reviews coming soon)
  • The warmer days
  • Getting the good news that I won’t need another operation (as it’s too risky)
  • Pizza’s and cocktails with Beth & Alex
  • Ciara & Chris’ son being born

How’s June been for you?

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your Nan. Grief is so hard. I lost my Gran 13 years ago, my Mum 6 years ago and my husband 3 years ago, life can seem so unfair at times. I find so much comfort in memories, although that did take me some time to achieve, but it did come and I am so grateful for those memories now. Just be kind to yourself and allow yourself to grieve, there will be lots of lows, but I tell myself my family are worth my tears. Be kind to yourself and do what is right for you. Time is a great healer but grief will always be with you, we learn to live with it while celebrating and cherishing their life. Take care of yourself xx

      Aw Janet, I’m so sorry to hear this. What a lovely comment. Grief is a hard one, I tend to busy myself but then sometimes it hit’s you all at once. Time is a healer as you say. xx
