This was a conversation i had with my mum last year, found it while going through "My Documents" so i thought i would share it with you.

Hiya, just got to tell you all about this. When i last saw mum last September I was asking her where my wonderful gramâ€™s ashes had been spread as i was mortified that i couldnâ€™t remember. This was the fantastic lady who had brought me up as i had lived with her for years. Why ? to long a story but Elaine still says to this day "Your Grans got a lot to answer for
Anyway, when i asked her last year she said she couldnâ€™t remember so no more was said. While my mum was in hospital last week Elaine decided to completely "Bottom" mums flat and while doing so came out of the kitchen with a very serious look on her face.
There, at the back of mums bottom pan cupboard was a casket!! All screwed down, airtight and still looking as new as the day it was made!!
This is how the conversation went
Elaine: Err, Norrms, any idea what this is?:eek:
Me: i know what it looks like, but it cant be ??
Elaine: Do you remember the conversation with mum about your grandma?:eek::eek:
Me: Complete silence and open mouthed !!
Me: It cant be? can it ??
Me: Grandma, is that you in there ???
Elaine: i have found many things in my time of nursing and clearing up but never ever somebody`s ashes !!:D
Me; Eventually: Will have to ask mum????
So, the same night i gingerly sat in front of my mum and asked if she knew anything about a casket in the bottom of her kitchen cupboards and was it my dear grandma??
Is It Bl***y H*LL she laughed out loud, Do you think i have completely lost all my marbles??Loll
After a very funny and lengthy conversation about the item found it turns out that my dad worked for a time at our local crematorium and as a joke leaving present they gave him a very nice wooden casket for future use !!LOL My mum had forgot it was there and had intended using it as a money box after cutting a hole in the top but never got round to it !!LOL
My dear Grandma?? Her ashes were interred in the family plot in Astley Bridge cemetery i later found out that night.
Goodnight God bless Gran, still love you loads xxxxxxxxxxxxx
