So, here we sit 9 days down the line and not much further on with anything.
Tom eventually reached the top of the list and the coroner has been notified but we are still waiting to hear whether he will just issue the death certificate or whether further investigation or a post mortem is needed.
When we eventually have the certificate we then need to book an appointment with the registrar to register the death, then we need to book an appointment with the Vicar, then we need to book the crematorium.
We are in no rush by any means but I do keep thinking at the back of my mind that this funeral seems to be taking a long time to happen. Realistically it probably won't take place until the end of next week.
It's odd really because due to the length of time that's passed with nothing much happening, life seems to have slowly returned back to normal and in the midst of it all I'll suddenly think "oh, we've still got to do the funeral".
One of the last things Tom said to us was to treat ourselves to a little holiday, so we've been having a look for somewhere to go before Amy and Thomas go back to school. We can't seem to find anything, I don't think we're really in the mood, and time is marching on so maybe we will go away for a weekend in September instead.
