Shrinking clothes

For some time now, J has been complaining that the very efficient laundry service at the hospice has been causing her clothes to shrink.  Today she realized the real reason: good food, strong medication and no exercise. This made her unhappy, and she took it out on me somewhat. However she was pleased to see Lucy’s excellent skipping videos compilation that Lucy has set to music, and also Lucy’s leaving card from the skipping club tonight.

Speaking to nurse Steph tonight, the doctor has apparently recommended dropping one of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in a bid to reduce the overall swelling in her feet, and I think, to prevent the occasional sharp abdominal pains she’s been experiencing.

We also tentatively planned another trip home for J sometime next week, and a shopping trip, perhaps as soon as Friday. J can’t quite visualise when this will happen, but I think when she does, it will give her lots to look forward to. She was very grumpy on both my visits today.

Alice spent the day at home with one of her friends, then went to see the last Harry Potter film with several more friends. Lucy & I drove two of them home, into deepest Oxfordshire.

Juliet's Tree
Juliet’s Tree

Looking at Google Maps, and then Google Street View today, I found that our house is now shown on the latter, including Juliet’s tree – the flowering cherry that we planted in March 2010. The online view must have been taken around March of this year, just as the blossom was starting to develop. Here’s a photo of it in full splendour, taken at the
end of March this year.

About hodders

Husband and proud father of two daughters. Now a widower. Trying to balance between not dwelling on Juliet's death, but telling the world how much I loved her. Tricky.
