    ~ Just ranting it out til the anniversary of my Nan's death because ... well, how else am I going to cope?

    I miss her :sad: I want a hug :sad: Want to hear her shout at me one more time :sad:

    I've no idea what to do on the anniversary .. How to acknowledge it .. I wont be at home so I can't visit the grave .. Balloon maybe? Write a letter? I dunno ..

    Hey there..

    I'm sorry for the loss of your Nan. :hug:

    I used to write letters to my mom a lot. I think that's a good idea.
    Sometimes I listen to some of her favourite tunes as well or make her favourite food.

    I am sorry about the loss of your Nan as well and hope you can remember her in happy ways now. She would want you happy not sad. A balloon sounds wonderful way to remember her. take care maybe go out with friends tonight and enjoy your evening your Nan would like that.

    Joe will look after you hun, and I think the letter writing and music and balloon are all good ideas, get a really pretty balloon and maybe tie the letter to it?

    You did the letter and balloon before, remember? We had a bit of trouble with it lol but it seemed to help you at the time, maybe you should try that again :smile:
