There are five weeks of traffic signals works beginning today in Deddington, en route to Adderbury – how long does it take to replace a few traffic lights? Oh, five weeks then. So we drove in via Clifton and Aynho, which was different but not very practical.
J was fast asleep when the girls & I visited this morning. We gradually woke her up by repeatedly calling her name and squeezing her finger. Eventually we got a lopsided smile and she opened her eyes a few times. We gave her a few sips of water & from a carton of 29p apple juice, which probably tasted good despite the budget appearance. Eventually we got her awake enough to feed her a little breakfast cereal & blueberries. I did my “neeeyooow”aeroplane action while feeding her the last few spoonfuls (like we used to do with the girls) and received a withering look. That was quite funny and shows that her understanding is still there. But she doesn’t say anything now.
The nurses then came to give her a wash and so we left. Her mum will visit this afternoon.
Today’s photo is J reading to Lucy in the nursery at Southborough, 24th April 1994, so Lucy was one and a half.
