and one of those things is that you are going to die. Now don't panic this isn't a doom and gloom post, but it is one of those things that I am sure passes through all our minds at one time or another?
Anyhow, now that I am heading towards to the big four five, thoughts of not that I am going to die, but when I do die where am I going to be buried have been passing through my mind.
You see the problem is we're not affiliated to any church in our area. All the older churches, their church yards are all full up, so that leaves the cemeteries. Now there is a cemetery just down the road from where we live, but honestly its a glorified field, with a few sticks that are supposed to resemble trees (they are just baby trees), so that's no good, as you all know I don't like being in the sun. I need to be buried in a shady area so I won't get sun burnt.
Then there are those plastic Noma /Garden lights everywhere??? Who in their right mind wants to be buried near plastic Noma Lights.......do I look like a plastic Noma Light person....well heck no.
Then this cemetery is next to a busy road. Why on earth would I want to be buried next to a busy road, I am never going to get any rest with all that traffic.
So all this is posing a problem as to where I want to be buried. One thing I know for sure I don't want to be shipped back to England, as then no one will come to visit me. My dad reckons he wants his ashes shipped back to Britain and scattered in a river. I have made it perfectly clear I will not be carting his ashes over on a plane, so he has to persuade one of my brothers to do the honours.
Anyhow back to what the issue is, where am I going to be buried. So today (Sunday) we go for a drive out in the country and we stumble upon this church yard, and its lovely.
There is even a river opposite it, can it get any more perfect? I think not!!!
The only problem with all this.........we don't live in the area where this cemetery is..........maybe a move is in order!!! Imagine what the real estate agent would say if I said we wanted this sort of house, and that sort of house, oh and also it must be located near an attractive cemetery!!!
Seriously though figuring out where your final resting place will be is important.
