1 family 2 funerals

1 family 2 funerals

This is the reason I have been so quiet lately. It also accounts for my Britmums Live post being so late!

For some reason everything seemed to happen all at once.

So either side of the week of Britmums Live was a bit mad. Mr B’s Nan had taken ill a week or so before so we had several trips up to the hospital to see her and helping out my MIL with dinners and washing etc as she had spent most of her time at the hospital. Then I get the news that my Nan had been taken to hospital!

But it wasn’t that simple just to pop to see her. She lives in Belfast and I’m in London so it’s not exactly round the corner. At that point they had only given her 24hrs to live. However, it was the same for Mr B’s Nan and she lasted a full 2 weeks.So with that in mind¬†and knowing how quick the funerals take place over there I opted to wait and go to say my goodbyes at the funeral.

However, as it worked out Mr B’s Nan had already passed away and her funeral was arranged for the 25th of June. I spent the few days on the run up to and the time during Britmums Live waiting for the call to say my Nan had passed away. My week after the Britmums weekend consisted of:

Popping my Britmums Live cherry- 2014

First of all this post is really, really late but I will explain that in another post!

Anyway, on to me popping my Britmums Live cherry.

After listening to all the talk on Twitter last year, looking at all the fab pictures and generally feeling like I had missed out. I decided that 2014 was definitely the year I was going to go to the Britmums Live event in London.

This post should have been done well before now and for that I apologise!

Britmums Live

Anyway, last year I was at home too scared to get a Britmums Live ticket and kept up with all the goings on via Twitter and really felt like I had missed out. I was determined to go this year. Although as the day approaches I am getting very nervous and hoping I wont be the ‘Billy No Mates’ there.

However, I was lucky enough to be offered a Britmums Live Sponsor from a really lovely guy and his company who I had the pleasure of reviewing the products.

Ade is a great fella to deal with. He’s very chatty and down to earth, and lets face it when you are talking about the things that are concerned in a Will then you don’t want to be dealing with some stuffy suit in an office. I was lucky enough to be close enough for him to come an visit personally while sorting my will however, even over the phone he is very friendly and comfortable to talk to.

Those of you that subscribe to my blog will have received an email before Christmas about his company’s Will service with a special offer thrown in for good measure. Those of you who haven’t sorted a will can easily get in contact with him by visiting his website Maximum Inheritance Specialists.

So thanks to Ade I will definitely be attending Britmums Live this year. In less than a week (nerves are kicking in) and I am really looking forward to actually meeting those of you I chat with online with.
