Dear 2010

Dear 2010,

I feel it is only right to send you this letter, we’ve not met face to face, and this will be the last time I have any interaction with you.  I think you will understand that I am very comfortable with this fact, as – to say the least – we have not got along.

So Far, So Good

The Father has landed.

He got back about three yesterday and suddenly everything was bustling.  He got in with no help from the grumpiest ambulance driver of all time (I say ambulance, I mean tatty Ford Mondeo they had to use instead), then within a matter of minutes the OT nurse arrived to have a first brief about their care team, then five minutes after she left the District Nurse arrived to do her thing, and an hour later two care team nurses came to make him some tea.  In all it was a pretty tiring day for the old bugger, but one that reassured me.

24 Hours To D-Day

So that Hoedown was a lot of fun.  Absolutely what I needed.

I’ll blog about that at a later date, and maybe tease you on this blog with one of the pictures I took, because I was very lucky and took some lovely shots of Cornwall.

This blog, however, is back to the subject of my hospitalised father.  Not that he’s going to be hospitalised for much longer!
Yes, he’s coming home in pretty much 24 hours!

There’s No Charge In My Battery


So the LIVE BLOG FROM GLASTONBURY didn’t really work out, which is a shame, but I have a rubbish Blackberry battery to blame.  I took a spare, carefully charged, and put it in the lockups. When I swapped my first when the meter ran red … nothing.

Most frustrating.

However, it was – to put it mildly – one of the best four days of my life.  I’m going to do extensive blogging about each day, with gratuitous photos of varying poor quality, but I’ve been hampered by some bad times that have made my life decidedly emo, so first off I’ll talk about how the diabetes maintenance went.

It didn’t go well, hehe.
