On Saturday an old friend from university came to visit us, brining his wife and their 10 week old girl. They run their own business (that is my friend and his wife not my friend and his new daughter) and had believed that they could not have kids so the arrival of the little one was a bit of a shock and an upheaval. They are going through the sleepless nights and the crying at the same time as trying to split the workload of their consultancy business, I do not envy them.
Visited Mum and Dad this morning with Freddy and Susie. Mum is into hospital this evening to have her breast cancer operated on. I still feel a bit numb about the whole situation, almost as if it is happening in a book or a film rather than to Mum. The medical people seem confident so there is no reason why we shouldn’t be.
