Recent Abscence

I have not been putting anything up here lately. This is because my elderly mother had a nasty fall some weeks ago and I've been shuttling back and forth between Ipswich and Boston (some 200 mile round trip) to visit in hospital. All seemed to be going well and we were looking forward to having her home, when she contracted shingles, which suddenly developed into some long named meningitis. A massive stroke followed, and the doctors put her on very strong medication, but after a week of unconsciousness and a hard fight (she was a stubborn old lady, in her way) she passed away.
It is the end of an era for me, the last member of her generation of the family. It was very strange entering her house without her there. I shall miss her.
Now it only remains to get her affairs sorted and eventually get back to normal. Reports will resume soon.
