It’s been quite a week, no sooner do I shake off bronchitis and I get a dose of gastro, I shake that off and I have this damned annoying cough back. In a nutshell that is why I have not been on for a few days, I have had the wind knocked out of my sails and all I have done is work and sleep.
Thursday would have been the fourteenth birthday of my first-born grandson Jordan. For whatever reason the Universe had, Jordan did not make it into this world, a beautiful angel taken before he even had a chance at life. My head tells me there was a reason, but my heart goes out to my son and his then partner, it makes you appreciate what you now have even more.
Last night Brian and I had dinner with good friends at Zapata’s Cantina in Sempahore, and I was surprised with a couple of early birthday gifts. What wonderful people, after the last couple of weeks I needed that. I had my first chimichanga, and my first few Melon Loco cocktails, all went down a treat. Unfortunately we were minus one last night as Denis is in hospital, get well soon Mate.
Today we had lunch at the Oyster Bar on Holdfast Shores with another good friend Annie. We have not spent any real time with Annie for quite a while so it was great to catch up.
My son Blake is now doing very much better, thank you again to all those who were kind enough to write to me. He seems to be getting himself on track, new treatment and a much healthier outlook on life, only time will tell but I have faith.
In the meantime my stepmother is declining, Alzheimer’s seems to be taking her faster and faster, it will be a blessing to both her and Dad when it is over. I would like to say get well Joy but we know that will never happen. So very sad.
We are about to hop in the car again as tonight we are going to Wade and Gink’s for dinner. Gink is quite a dab cook so it should be a good night.
My thoughts are with the people of the Philippines, they need our support at this terrible time.
