Talk about playing to the audience.

The Judge droned on and on even rabbiting on about another case - which was totally irrelevant as they were not the same at all.

Not a place I would wish to visit on my jaunts TBH.

What do relatives do with their deceased member of family then?
Looks looks DCC/ NEDDC had better give us all a different colour bin to go with the other 3 we have!!

Seriously though the person 'has' be be buried/cremated. Could the people concerned not just pat the responsibilty back to the state?

This is something I have actually been thinking about, more in relation to my daughter who has very little money and will be penalised for her inheritance from me.

The death of my brother this year has brought thoughts of this to the front of my mind.

I have already contacted the Church and the Funeral Directors asking if we could buy plots in the Crem. side of the Church.
The answer to that is no!

The next intention is to pre-pay for the funerals, having discussed with hubby and daughter what they wanted after death.
This should take some of the stress out of the situation when that time comes.

I think that maybe the cost should be capped ironsky but the F/D have to make a living.
I will check out the F/D and hopefully should get a  breakdown of costs.
It will be interesting to see if they can be done 'on a shoe string' or not.

I really shouldn't have to be thinking the way I am but feel I need to protect my daughter.
My intentions are to 'drip feed' some of her inheritance before I die.
The last thing I did was to pay for her garden to be finished off.

She could also do with a 'profile bed' ( hospital bed ) as she struggles getting in/out even with the bar she has.

It's a sad old country getting.!!

After following this long winded court case I sat this morning waiting for the verdict of sentencing.

Zeees, the judge went on and on I was I admit getting bored.

After all this huffing and puffing over the months OP got 5 years in prison - expected to be reduced to about 10 months!

I'm sure the original 3 weeks set for this trial could have been adhered to.
What a waste of time and money!

What did, soft toilet roll. Or the cheaper price  ::)

The Dragon stood working it all out in the middle of Lidl with shoppers walking round me  ;)

I always buy extra of items when they are on offer.
The other week in Lidl, I worked out the although Andrex toliet rolls were more expensive than Cushelle sheet for sheet,
 I could get more for my money if I bought the Andrex - which I did  ;)

Made hubby chuckle  ;)

Often people can get hot headed with a situation and although I'm not minimizing assault I do think people in this category should be allowed to move forward with their lives.

A Love Story

I will seek and find you.

I shall take you to bed and have my way with you.

I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.

I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.

I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you.

And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.

All my love,

The Flu

Now get your mind out of the gutter and go get your flu shot!
