This week has been…well, different, to say the least.
I’ve been grateful to have family and friends around, as my Dziadek (that’s ‘grandad’ in polish) passed away last week. Friday was his funeral, and it was a really moving day. It’s been great being with family for a few days, and it really does bring you back down to earth…
So this week i’m dedicating my Sunday blog post to him. Not that he would even know what a blog is, but that doesn’t matter. I have to say that the service was made so much better by the priest at the funeral home, who was….well, a bit ‘eccentric’! He forgot the Holy Water to start with, and that, topped with the fact that it didn’t look like he knew where he was, managed to turn quite a sad occasion in to a fairly hysterically funny one. I’m sure Dziadek was laughing at the entire spectacle!
