Let's start with the candy winner. While I'm back at home I thought I'd better take the opportunity to get the candy drawn.
Anne I will get your parcel popped in the mail to you xxx
The reason for my absence:
My mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer in July. Mum was a very private person and she didn't want anyone to know that she was poorly.
She didn't want to talk about it, didn't complain, just accepted it and got on with it.
She didn't want any treatment, just palliative care and her only wish was to remain at home for as long as possible.
My amazing dad cared for mum, with the District Nurses and Bolton Hospice at Home nurses providing invaluable support for the last couple of weeks, which enabled mum to remain at home for all but a couple of hours. I cannot praise enough the work these nurses do, they are truly angels.
Mum passed away peacefully in the early hours of last Saturday morning.
I will not be around much for at least the next couple of weeks.
