Wednesday 25th April 2012

Hi every one! I am completely knackered! Today was going to be a rest day, but exciting things happened! I had a call from a reporter from the Birmingham Mail. She interviewed me over the phone. She sent a photographer this after noon, and 'it' should be published in tomorrow's paper!
Woooohoooooo! I really hope that they think that it is worth it, and haven't got me muddled with some one else! Mum is fine after her fall yesterday. I took her to the Doctor's. I have to take her for more blood tests on Friday morning before I make the trip for my pottery week end away. (That is her regular 6 monthly one). She is always giving her blood away for something! Lol! I suspect that she may be supporting a secret charity..............
Tomorrow, I am at Compton Hospice. I am really glad, because I think that I may need further pain control...particularly during the night........... Roxanne will be coming tomorrow evening too, so will Claire. Keith will come on Friday morning....ready for our pottery week end away. Back on Monday, and drum lessons on Tuesday!
As I said, I am really, really tired, and I think that I should be resting. On the other hand, there is so much that I want to do with the time I have left........
I will be having all the rest in the world all too soon. And you're a long time dead.............................
