Probate at last!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The process of sorting out my mother’s will is finally drawing to an end.

She died in early June at the age of 103 (a month short of 104) and my sister and I have had the job of acting as the executors of her will. This has been a long-winded process, with much of the time taken up waiting for various organisations to respond to our enquiries about the various accounts that Mother held, some of which had not been touched in decades!

I was eventually able to make the formal application for Probate last week and fully expected to have to wait another couple of months for it to be granted. However, I heard this morning that everything is fine and that the official document will be in our hands by the end the week.

At last we will be able to start paying out the legacies to Mother’s various grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and selling her flat, which has been empty ever since Mother had to go into hospital back in the Spring.

I do so like it when things work out!
