I saw this on Lovely Grey's Blog, it's from HERE. ( Apologies for pinching the idea for a post!)
I've copied it to print out.
I don't know anything about the organisation, but this seemed like a good plan whatever the month.
Contrary to what it might seem like by my blog posts, I've not been gliding through the first 2 months of bereavement without some hitches.
Someone commented that they knew people who had had car accidents after losing a loved one - lack of concentration being the problem and although I haven't crashed the car yet - Touch Wood - some other things have happened that have made me realise how not with-it I've been sometimes. Yesterday I put the water on to fill 2 water butts and meant to come in and set the cooker timer, yep, you guessed ..................didn't put timer on and only remembered the water about an hour later. Expensive.
A few times I've decided what to have for dinner and got something out of the freezer only to forget before evening and have an omelette instead and I have to write even more lists than before just to remember where and what I'm doing every day!
But the worst one was a few weeks ago when I found the gas to the oven was out in the middle of baking and after trying to re-light it with no success I went out to the cylinders and found them both empty. Somehow I had left something turned on low for a couple of days without noticing, no idea how that was possible and had lost 1½ cylinders of gas. Dangerous as well as expensive. I had to fetch the new spare cylinder from the workshop and fix it up to finish cooking and then over the next few days had to buy 2 new full ones.
Hopefully my memory will improve as the months pass.
On a different topic, I saw an interesting report on local BBC TV Look East. Ipswich hospital has just merged with Colchester Hospital and they were there talking to Chief Executive and nurses (also part of a feature on 70 years of the NHS) The Chief Executive started in hospital as a Porter......I reckon all top staff should have worked their way up like that. They also said Ipswich Hospital is one of the safest in the country. Then they were in the children's ward exactly where Youngest Daughter was with Florence last week. Weird coincidence.
And another different thing..........there is a big Fly Past over Buck Palace for HRH next week, celebrating 100 Years of the RAF and after their practice the other day the fighters all flew over here in 3 formations on their way back to their bases in Lincolnshire and Norfolk, it was very exciting, I thought we were at war and no one had told me! Luckily Pat at Weaver of Grass stopped me worrying!
