The funeral went well today, and my eulogy seemed to do what I hoped it would. I even had real laughter which is far more than I could have hoped for. My mum kept my script, saying it was "super".
So before I down the rest of this bottle of wine and help Mrs RC celebrate what is left of her birthday (oh yes!) I would like to thank you all for your votes of confidence in my ability to make a suitable speech. It really meant a lot.
More soon. My phone is not great for long posts, especially after a few drinks...
PS we will be extending Mrs RC's birthday into tomorrow. For more on this subject, check her blog (White Elephant, in the list to the right) as she is currently working on another post of her own.
