In my last post I mentioned my mother-in-law had gone into hospital again. Sadly, this time, she didn’t come out, taking the same downward spiral as my dad. We returned home last Saturday after the funeral in the village of Bulkington in Warwickshire.
I thought I was in a position to start getting back into writing again without too many more distractions, but yesterday we went over to see my mum on Anglesey (about an hour to get there) to find she is suffering from a nasty gash in her leg, picked up from my sister’s car door. It’s not healing very well. On Sunday she was given antibiotics, and yesterday seemed to suffer an allergic reaction to them. My sister took her to the doctor this afternoon, but as she can’t make the follow-up appointments tomorrow and Friday, I’m going to take her.
On a happier note, we’re going over to my son’s place in Derbyshire on Saturday for a few days, which will hopefully involve a trip to watch some cricket on Monday (weather permitting).
So perhaps I’ll start writing again properly next week, and just try and fit as much in as I can around everything else that’s happening this week.
