Two weeks on....

Two weeks on from his brain tumour removal and Mike(son in law) is doing well.It is still early days but there is progress every day and no apparent brain damage.Our daughter has been amazing coping with everything but had a meltdown on Sunday as did I.We all felt relief it was over but it has been a very stressful few months which started with one of our grandsons being very poorly with appendicitis.Fingers crossed we are on the"up".
It is a busy week for us.I met a friend for coffee yesterday.Isn't it great to have a friend you can tell everything and they understand.This morning was U3A Art Appreciation.The talk from one of our members was on Banksy.Very interesting with lots of unanswered questions.Tomorrow is lunch club.14 of us go out for lunch taking it in turns to choose a venue.A very pleasant couple of hours.Thursday morning is my reading group.The book is Entry Isla d by Peter May.I still have 200 plus pages to read!!Thursday evening we are going to the theatre to see a live screening from the National Theatre of Cyrano de Bergerac.Friday I meet another friend for coffee and then we are off early afternoon to see Sarah,Mike and family.Saturday morning we meet a different set of friends for coffee and then in the afternoon we are going seeing Little Women at the film theatre.
Phew.I may need to sleep all day Sunday.

Last Saturday we saw the film 1917 and were underwhelmed by it.Has anyone seen it and what did you think?


  1. Glad to hear that your son in law is continuing to do well. I'm not surprised that you and your daughter had the meltdown - you've both had an incredibly stressful time and it probably did you good to release it all.

    You have a busy fun filled week ahead of you. I hope you enjoy everything you have planned.

  2. Such good news about your son in law. It's been a dreadfully stressful time for you all, hasn't it?

  3. Glad you got some news and hope things continue to swing upward. You're keeping very busy with your social engagements, you're a social butterfly, lol. Take care.

  4. Lots of lovely things to keep your mind occupied.
    So good to read the recovery is going well.
