Life, it would seem, goes on - but it is far from fair...

Playlist
Various - Last Nine Months on Shuffleplay

Up around 5:15, unable to sleep...

Once again surfing downstairs with Meg the Black Cat...

Anne up around 8:30...

Snow...





To the store for rolls and bacon re an uplifting and supportive breakfast visit from Count Brodski and Penny...







Good times as always with Alan and Penny - an underlying sadness though...

On this Sunday last year I flew to Hemel and taught Pam the mantra "I have a brain tumour.  I'm having an operation.  I'm going to be fine"...

It seems I was wrong...

A year ago today, I went for our family Xmas meal without having told anyone of what had happened to Pam...

Today the meal fell on the same date and Alan and Penny gave us a lift over to Leith, allowing them to extend their breakfast visit to Crispycat Towers, due to our no longer having to take an hour long bus journey...

A brave face was adopted...

A very tasty tapas extravaganza was enjoyed...



Then on to nearby Sofi's for more drinks...



Not content with my thoughts of Pam, my leg had decided not to be fixed any longer and was giving me gyp...

A bus home...





An evening of phone calls to Pam's closest friends in Hemel advising them of yesterday's news...

Much sadness and upset...

Not an enjoyable experience...

"Garrow's Law" distracted the mind before bed...

Highlight of the day : Uplifting visit, family meal...

Yes you're probably right...

So sorry to hear the news about Pam's condition. It's such a moving tale but awful that it has to reach this point, our thoughts are with you both, the family and of course Pam - whom we've come to know through your words and pictures. You have made a difference...

Thank John and Ali.

Pam was an avid reader of this blog, keeping up with what we were up to from her home in Hemel Hempstead...

In hindssight there's a certain inevitablity as to what's happened but we were right to fight as best we could and we've had some good times together over the last year that we wouldn't have had inother circumstances...

Of course I'd hand them back in a heartbeat to have her back...
