Music Dinner

I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands. You know that music dinner I mentioned? The one that I bought that super awesome dress for – which I went and collected from the tailor today and fuck it looks good – and that I’ve been looking forward to for a good month now? Well, I’ve just discovered that something else is on the same day, and suffice to say it’s not something I’m looking forward to in the slightest.

It’s my nan’s funeral next Monday.

I don’t really know what to do. I’d like to go to the dinner, and I think it might be nice to do something cheerful to perk myself up a bit. But on the other hand, I don’t want to go and spend the whole evening being sad because having to socialise with people isn’t really necessarily what’ll be good for me. So I’m torn.

The thing is, I almost never go to these things. I ducked out of the dinner and the boat party last year, and I didn’t go to the end of year thing, so I kind of want to go just to make up for that. I’m umming and ahing and I don’t really think I’m likely to come up with an answer any time soon. That’s ok though. It’s not the end of the world if I don’t go, I guess.

Maybe I’ll just have to see how I feel next week or something.

  1. Here’s my two cents:
    There will be other music dinners, but there will never be another funeral for your nan. I guess it also depends on how close she was to you, or how much your family would mind if you didn’t go. And you could even wear the dress.

    • As always, you are extremely sensible and wise. Oh no, I’m definitely going to the funeral – the dinner is in the evening and I’m just not sure if I’ll really be in the mood for something like that after the funeral (which is in the day). I wasn’t exactly clear though. I could do, actually. I’ll see what my mum thinks, probably.
