I'm coming home for a funeral

I will be coming home on Monday for 1 week because my nana died this morning. I don't know if I mentioned this on the blog before, but my nana has been in hospital for 6 months (she went in after I was here in Japan for 1 month). She was in a coma type thing for a long time, and then got better and got to go home 2 weeks ago. She was sick because she was a smoker for 40 years. Her lungs weren't functioning and she had to have a "Tracky" (my mum calls it that, a hole in the neck for breathing tubes) and she had heart problems. I got to speak to her on Sunday, and then wham she was back in hospital on Monday, and then she died today, Thursday the 3rd of May.

My grandma loved fashion and was always very picky about what me and my sister wore. She never had alot of money but she loved pouring over catalogues on the weekend circling what she was going to buy on laybuy at Forrest Hill Chase. Sure it wasn't a Louis vuitton catalogue, it was a target or Kmart catalogue, but when she wore her new purchases she looked and felt like a million dollars.

And yes the wedding is still on, mainly because my nana was so happy about it (on the phone she called me Mrs Travers)
