What I need to watch out for is that I don't bring too much home with me 'just in case'. I have the same inability to waste stuff that Mum had, so I'm definitely at risk!
The garden is still looking good - we've had a gardener popping in every fortnight - but it definitely looked at its best on the day of the funeral.
We had some of mum's soup from the deepfreeze yesterday for lunch. It felt a little odd, but as Mr D said, she would not want it wasted! She made loads of soup - courgette and cumin, tomato, carrot and coriander. I'm really pleased that we have managed to eat pretty much everything from her two deepfreezes rather than having to throw it away.
It's a shame the weather is a bit naff! Not such a stunning view from the sun porch this morning.
I think when we go back, we will leave with a good sense of 'mission accomplished' knowing that we are another step nearer getting the house cleared. Hopefully, come the Autumn time, interest in the house will pick up. Selling a house in the summer down here isn't easy, but I'm going to pop in to the agents before we head back to reiterate that it needs to be sold BEFORE the winter!
The sun is really trying, so I'd better get myself going for another day of sorting ........
