This is just a bit of admin to let a blog search engine find this blog. Seems a shame to have to write it as a post, but there we are. So I’ll include a photo of J. The only one I have on my laptop which I haven’t already used is this one, taken in Marlow, Bucks.
We had a lovely weekend there in May 2009, shortly after her initial emergency surgery. She looks a bit tired and drawn (I don’t think she would have appreciated “haggard”!). We stayed in a famous, posh and expensive hotel called The Compleat Angler. I knew it was posh when I asked for a dry martini and they asked me what kind of olive I would like in it.
And a photo of us together, 23rd May 2009. Almost three years ago. There was much worse to come, but after the initial shock of J’s diagnosis and her hospital stay, this weekend was and is a lovely memory.
