Afternoon all Forkers. Jean, hope your daughter is soon on the mend.
I went to the GC with 2 of the boys, and ended up buying them lunch there - the cafe has a pizza oven and they make your pizza fresh there and then. So I've told them I'm not cooking later! The boys (and a couple of friends who've just called round) are now watching the rugby.
Had a long chat with my Mum this morning about the difficulties of looking after Grandad at home, as he's practically bedridden now, and also how my brother is doing. I haven't said before on the forum but he's in hospital having had most of his lung removed due to lung cancer. He's had a course of chemo before the operation and will have more chemo once he's recovered from the operation. I don't know what the long term prognosis is.
As Lizzie said, a moving undercurrent of human life, and as my Mum said earlier today, I wish the weather was better so I could go outside for some gardening therapy. Sometimes its hard to stay positive, but I'm giving it my best shot.
