Day of Two Halves

02:33 Edit This 4 Comments »

Weird day yesterday, had quite a difficult morning, me and my Mum went over to see my Nana, she wasn't well at all, she had an Op for Ovarian cancer about a week after my daughter was born and has been battling with the spreading cancer since, she is currently having her second course of chemo and it is really felling her, she moved house on Violet's birthday and she hasn't had a day where she has felt well since. Everyday she seems to have a struggle with some aspect of her health and it is awful that there isn't anything more I can do to help. On the surface she seems cheery and in control but I think deep down she is very scared and finding it really hard. I feel a bit useless because obviously I have the kids and I can't drive and my husband works 13 hour days it's hard for me to get to see her. It was nice to see her briefly yesterday without the children I felt I could be a bit more use.

When I got home we had lunch and pottered in the crazily beautiful sunshine and then we went to Cocklawburn Beach it's gorgeous there it's never busy it makes me proud to be Northumbrian, the kids had an amazing time. I drove there myself in our car Jonty (Peugeot 1007 in Custard Yellow) it was the first time I have driven an Automatic but it was good it was like lazy driving.

Today my son has a European themed Fun Run at school so we have dressed him up as a Roman Emperor he looks ace, we are just heading off right this second to cheer him on and probably take part, feel a bit sorry for the teachers needing to take a group of 3/4 year olds for laps of the school field.
