Ups and Downs

Where do I start? What an odd week!! Late last Saturday night we were told that Grandad had grown increasingly weak and that his meds were no longer any benefit to him. We were told that he only had a few days to live. Nan was rushed over from one hospital to the other, Hubby dashed back to Somerset, but he his a determind old man and has decided he is not finished yet! All this week he has improved and strengthened. But of course there are no guarantees but he may just prove them wrong. Grandad turns 92 on Saturday.

Nan has now been discharged. An infection broke out on her ward and they decided she would be safer out of it. She is staying with one of the aunts until alternative arrangements can be made. I am really glad she is out, she will be much happier and she will be able to spend more time with Grandad.

I have started my new job, and am loving it. My colleagues seem like a good bunch, and the work is challenging and variable. It is nice to be in the company of adults again too.

I have had a broody hen for a while, and as she was the only hen laying I have had no eggs! I really hate buying eggs now but I guess I will have to give in, as Hubby was complaining about their abscence last weekend!

I think that's about it for now!!
