20Something and Surviving

Life: Its a Celebration

The thing about funerals is that although they are sad, it can turn into quite a festive occasion. Well with my family at least.
We bid a fond farewell to my Gran with no real hiccups and I’m grateful for that. During the service the priest stated that she was no longer with us, she had gone on to a better place and that we should be happy that she is free of this earth. In fact, said he, we should be celebrating her life. And my family, never the type to disregard the words of a man of the cloth, took his words literally.

I hate funerals but it’s a chance to have a sort of reunion to catch up with what’s going on with whom. There is always the pulling out and comparing sizes but its nothing in the long term. The after party turned into quite an affair and I left before the trouble started. I like drama just not my own.

Managed to watch the Sharks game on Saturday. Grin. I just hope this here the Sharks aren’t cheated. Had to miss watching it live at the stadium but I know that I will get another chance at the final in two weeks. Does anyone know how I can secure tickets without having to join the hordes that are going to queue outside? Six feet boers in hiking boots and I are not really good friends. They get unnerved by the accent.

Its Monday; the start of the week and a chance to start everything anew. Try a change of perspective. Will report how that works out.
Have a great week.
