The last couple of weeks have been crazy for me as you can probably imagine.
Had to see Registrar to register Mum's passing, funeral directors, planning the funeral service (25th Nov), writing my part of the Eulogy (sadly as some of you will know this is the second Eulogy I've been involved with this year), instructing Probate Solicitor - I'm Executor; sorting out utility companies; getting Mum's house valued (Probate Solicitor needed values); keeping family up-to-date (and pacified/re-assured at times!); raising queries on behalf of Probate solicitor with family members and getting answers; dealing with loads and loads of correspondence; checking Mum's house regularly; getting her bank accounts frozen; liaising with life insurance companies - the list is endless! On top of all that I had work as well. :roll:
The Probate solicitor said that due to the level of work I've already done, her bill will be at the lower end of the scale she quoted. Nice feedback at a sad time!
So, my apologies to my Forum Family for having been AWOL lately but to be honest, when I've sunk into a chair I've been too exhausted to do anything apart from stare at the TV. Hopefully now the Solicitor is instructed my workload will reduce.
Turn a negative into a positive!
