He made it .
At around 7.15am a lone cyclist appeared around the village green in Walberswick. He hadn’t lost the other 2,000 cyclists , just said good-bye to them at Dunwich and peddled another 9 km ( totalling 209) on for a full English at Shirley Ann’s .
It was good to have John home safe and sound …I always worry.
Changing the subject somewhat, as you probably know ,I have a dear friend, Hazel, who I met through The Compassionate Friends.
Hazel also became a friend to Grandmama , as she too ,had trained as a nurse at St.Mary’s and now runs the museum there .
Tragically, Hazel’s daughter ,Laura, was murdered in the July 7th London bombings, ten years ago . Through Hazel ,I have met Julie Nicholson whose daughter ,Jenny, also died that day .Laura and Jenny were travelling in the same carriage on the Edgeware Road train ,when that bomb went off. Since that dreadful day Hazel and Julie have become friends.
Julie has written a book ,’Song for Jenny’ , which tonight is being showed as a drama on BBC1.
I don’t know what to say except ,Julie is a remarkable ,honest,grieving,kind,woman..and I for one ,will be watching it and hoping it is televised in the way ,both she and Hazel think is OK
