My last post was about Grandad and was on Father’s day – so it’s only fitting my next post starts with him as well! It’s funny how priorities and outcomes change as time goes on. Last year, when he went into hospital, our end goal was for him to go home. Gradually we’ve had to refocus our targets and have learned that sometimes the next best thing will have to be acceptable. The good news is that Grandad is coming ‘home’ in some respects, to a local nursing home. I hope that nobody has to go through seven months of hospitals because it has been gruelling.

The weather has been great. June into July was warm and we’ve just had the occasional (much needed) bouts of rain. I don’t recall when the last ‘proper’ Summer like this was, but it was way too long ago! Maisy has been once again enjoying a quick spell with the hose pipe…

I started the Christmas shopping in earnest today, which was a great diversion from uni book reading and essay writing (back to that tomorrow though!) I was amazed at how quickly the shops made a turn around from Halloween and Bonfire night and launched straight into Christmas. Baffling how they manage it overnight!
