Its a cruel cruel world

I have had a bit of a shocker today.

It has been insanely busy, with around 700k's being driven by yours truly, between home, cardiff, thornton, wallsend and home again.

in the meantime i found out that the grown son of a woman i work with has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. her husband dropped dead suddenly of the same thing only two years ago. three weeks between husband with no symptoms to burying husband. what a shock. now her eldest son has been diagnosed. hopefully it will be a less agressive kind. i am reeling. this is one of the most incredibly kind and lovley women i have ever had the honour of knowing. Certainly makes me think... and wonder.

husband chooses this evening to challenge me. i answer his questions honestly and forthrightly. now he is shattered. he didnt realise that while he had his head in the sand, i was slowly getting over the whole head in sand thing.

i dont know where we are going withthis

but it will be one way or the other, and soon


going to bed now

Very sad news Jen.

On both counts, I really hope things are o.k. / going to be o.k. for you.

Love to you,

All I can say Jen, is shit, shit, shit, shit & shit. Very eloquent, I know.

Hopefully, there is an upside in this. Your friend's son can get the treatment he needs before it gets too bad, & you & Hubby can sort things out in a way that works for you all.

Awful about your friends son.

Good about you and hub though, really! Any movement is positive, nothing changes till something changes...
