… I seriously began to doubt that I’d get home tonight. (Or why snow turns me into Mrs Scroogey MacGrinch).
This was taken at 4:30pm this afternoon. I guess I shouldn’t complain, I got home at 6pm. It usually takes me 15 minutes to walk from the train station but I was slipping and sliding all over the place and it took me 30 minutes! All told, from the time I left work to the time I got home, it took two hours!
I spent most of last week sick in bed and was actually happy to be back at work today. I’d even like to go in tomorrow so I hope the weather obliges! Thank goodness it is Winter Solstice tonight and the days will be getting that much longer from tomorrow.
My brother is out of hospital and safe and sound back at home. (He was hospitalised for ketoacidosis, a complication of diabetes, last Tuesday). He is very weak though and can’t eat properly yet. We came very, very close to losing him and it was the most frightening experience of my life. I felt all the more powerless because I wasn’t allowed in the hospital because of my cold!!
Anyway, I do hope hope to get back into some schedule of blogging as I am leave next week. I have a couple more New York posts which I hope to get done by Christmas and then I have quite a few London posts lined up which should take us right into the new year. Of course, there is the small matter of our central heating still being broken which is what caused my cold in the first place so we’ll see how much I get done aside from snuggling up in bed with a good book! We live in hope that the central heating will be fixed by Christmas.
