Monday 27th April
Robyn has the day off on a Monday so she takes me to Oxford shopping. She wants to look for a dress for a friends wedding reception. Surprisingly, after quite a few shops, and going back to the first one (as always), she finds one she likes. And some nice new shoes too! I look around for some presents for Leah’s birthday which is coming up soon. Reasonably successful. We have lunch out. It’s always a good day when I’m away from four walls for a while.
When we get home I decide it is time for me to stay there. I know my family have started to have enough of looking after me. Time to start looking after myself – and the house again. Although I know it’s going to be very tough and some things I’m just not going to be able to do yet. And lonely. Hard for the kids too as their both back to working full time. But I’m sure we’ll survive.
