You just know that the person that buys this will end up in A&E having those pulled out of their arsehole.

Was my man's funeral this morning.

I'm absolutely knackered. Didn't get much sleep last night but that was mainly due to the shite pillows my older brother and his wife provided! Well they weren't actually shite, just not ones I like/use.

Was worried how the funeral was but was over really quickly. Did a wee reading of something I wrote and was glad I was able to do it. When we were walking behind her coffin going in to the crematorium I had the thought that I was looking at a stark dose of reality. Was all a bit surreal this morning getting in the fancy big car to ride behind the hearse and walking past everyone to the front row when we got to the crematorium. Thought the old curtain close was going to be rough but I was ok. The photo montage to music got a few folk but mostly there were chuckles, as we'd picked some amusing ones to go with the nice ones. Having a wee laugh at some of the silly ones helped.

Thankfully the funeral went well (you know what I mean) and was really nice to see loads of family. Insert the usual cliche about funerals and weddings.

Glad I decided not to drink today. Plenty of beers and other stuff was had after. No judging those who did, but I can get emotional when drinking if I'm not careful/have heightened emotions.

Pleased that it's all done with now (the funeral I mean; we're getting a headstone and burying her ashes in the cemetery in the village she lived in/my dad lives in, but that won't be for a bit yet).

A little worried that things might suddenly 'catch up with me' at some point over the next few days/week, but I think I'm going to be ok.

Condolences. Folk leave a wee piece of themselves behind in your mind, if you're lucky. Keep that with you.

And aye, everything about funerals is surreal.

From (bitter) experience, the funeral is the turning point. Condolences and best wishes.

I can assure you, from experience, that it will be little things for a while that remind, bemuse, confuse and cause emotion. There’s really no telling, and it’s much better to be ready to just roll with it than worried about it. Condolences on your loss.

Been invited to speak at a conference in November in Amsterdam.

Just need to figure out how to convince the wife that this is indeed work and not some degraded drink/drugs/red light binge.

Given her propensity to f**k off for days away she's in no position to question your motives.
