Lessons I’ve learnt…

It has been such a sad week with the loss of one of our much adored kittens who was very much a part of the family. I’ve been trying to help the children to understand the loss of their pet and how we can remember Luke in a happy way. I’ve learnt quite a lot since Friday….

  1. Shopping in Guildford with no make and puffy eyes increases the probability of bumping into people you know. Leaving the hairdressers lowers the probability.
  2. After extensive driving, WHSmith has the best range of beanie boo cats in Surrey.
  3. Having new beanie boo cats does help to aid a child’s grief, however the peak seems to be about 6 beanie boos, after which the effect plateaus.
  4. A new ninja costume is a good distraction.
  5. Even though a cat is not a human it still causes so much grief, although thankfully more in adults than a child.
  6. A glass or 2 of wine helps, a whole bottle definitely does not.
  7. Naming your sibling pets something cute like Luke and Leia, makes the passing of one, more poignant as it’s more obvious one is missing.
  8. My children are very brave. My braveface needs to become more convincing.
  9. There is no limit to how many chocolate pancakes a 6 year old can eat.
  10. You can never have too many cuddles with those that you love.

Smiles are slowly returning but it’ll take a bit of time.
