Well hello there deskers, hope you are all well. Thought I'd pop in and say hello and - if you've missed me, the weeks go by so fast!! - let you know I've had a bit of a time of it. When I was last here I was about to kick off my birthday celebrations with a pamper day. Unfortunately, my plans went a bit awry as having gone into Charing Cross as a day patient to attend a routine scan, mum took a sudden turn for the worse, was admitted that night and sadly slipped away a week later from heart failure and pneumonia.
Was a surprise/wasn't a surprise. She was 89, had been poorly, so we had been gently preparing ourselves but hoping, always hoping. Accelerating in a week from OK, could do better to really, really not OK? More of a surprise. I for one wasn't ready it turns out.

My desk is clear as I have tidied in anticipation of Christmas which will now be here at mine, not mum's as planned to spare her travelling. Instead of a picture of my desk I hope you will indulge me as I post a picture of my lovely mum just after her pacemaker op in July.
The funeral is tomorrow, Thursday, so not sure I will make it round many desks today, a tad distracted. Bear with. Virtual hugs and prayers always accepted however.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas.
Hold your loved ones close!!
Stay well, stay safe,
Love n hugs
