Thank you Declan, Sally and Adam for your lovely words , and thank you to everyone who came yesterday, sent cards,flowers, donated to The Spinal Injuries Association ( Ma’s chosen charity ) , wrote,read,sang,spoke,laughed and cried .Ma would have loved it ! The sun shone and it was all lovely and sad and happy .She was 90 bless her ,but on days such as yesterday Rosie and Jane are right there with her ..and that gash of mine is very exposed .
I was absolutely exhausted last night ,but bing …woke up at 1am with pains in my chest .It was either a heart attack or indigestion from the fish and chips .So I covered all bases, came downstairs and had a Gaviscon and a 2 Parcetamol and contemplated self-diagnosis by watching ‘Embarrassing Bodies’. But I felt snoozy and so went back to bed .I think it was indigestion.
Sarah,kristian,Thor ,Frig ,Gro ,Flo and Andrey jetted off to Copenhagen,Glasgow and Krakow today ,but Nic and Vic are joining us for supper tonight ,so the party continues .
Don’t be too concerned ,but I’m going into hospital tomo for a small medical procedure .You’ll be impressed , my consultant specialises in Sports Injuries. I expect I’ll be in there with all those Olympic hopefuls …and I’ve been told to keep the end of July beginning of August free ? Plus I can’t drive for 6 weeks ,so if anyone fancies taking an old girl out for a spin/coffee/lunch/day at the races etc – I’m game on and have my own wheelchair/rotator/elbow crutches/ motorised scooter *
Adam ,there’s a prog on tonight you might be interested in …BBC 1 10.40 ‘Rita Simons- My Daughter ,Deafness and Me’.
It’s the 21st tomo , so poignantly we’ll say goodbye to Rosie and Grandma together
