Doggy Reindeer

It's been a long day! I attended Fran's Mum's funeral today. They had a private burial before the memorial service at the Funeral Home Chapel. It was a lovely Christian service, Fran wrote the Eulogy, but didn't feel up to reading it so the Minister read it.  He had known her Mum personally so added a few little bits of his own as he read. That was nice.
They had a cup of tea/coffee and some sandwiches and cake there afterwards and then family and some close friends went back to there home and had more food and reminisced some more too.  It was great that the family had lots of support on the day.
I stayed till about 3.30 p.m. and then ducked out to try and buy some new shoes.  I didn't have any luck as I was trying to buy something similar to what I've worn for the last couple of years.  They had the shoes but only one pair and 1 size too small.
I came home and found that the kitchen light was on the blink.  I made tea using just the light over the stove!!! It was just barely enough but I didn't burn anything, LOL.
I had choir rehearsal tonight and the leader of the band that will be playing with us came along to see how we were progressing with the pieces we are learning and I suppose to get some idea of how our conductor was preparing them.
Our youngest son is still not home, he is helping someone get a car ready to drive in a rally - they have to have it all ready and then checked and put in lock-up?  Not quite sure what all that means, LOL.
Well I had better get on and share my card,
