I’ve just arranged my funeral cover. Weird. I also feel really relieved too, like a weight has been lifted. Good.
It’s something I wish I’d done sooner but I didn’t really know where to start. A few of the YBCN ladies have also signed up to the same company – no questions asked, pre-existing conditions included. All I have to do is stay alive for the next 12 months!!
Haha that does make me chuckle – only someone in the same boat as me, with the same warped sense of humour regarding death, will understand that. Let the countdown begin!!
Funerals are apparently expensive shindigs, one that I’m pretty gutted to be missing if I’m honest – well I suppose I will be there……kind of………!!
Anyway, it’s something that has been playing on my mind for a while now. Not just the cost but also how I want it to go. I’ve got a page of ‘notes’ on my iPhone (just in case) and I’m very specific with the smaller details.
It’s not an easy conversation to have, especially when those around you struggle at the slight mention of the ‘C’ word! But it’s something that I need to plan, to arrange and to sort while I can. It’s something else I can tick off in my brain knowing that’s it’ll be exactly how I want it. Not how someone who doesn’t really know me, thinks I want it.
I want it to be as easy as possible for those I’ll leave behind. It’s going to be hard enough as it is without the added worry. I can rest easy knowing that they aren’t faced with the stress of arranging it all.
My funeral. That’s some weird shit!
