There was a noise overhead and both Alec and Sam turned sharply to try and identify it’s source; necks craning upwards they searched the sky but there was nothing other than a dense cloud bank.
“Are you sure that you want to go ahead with this John?” He was not normally one to shy away from difficult cases but he had deep reservations about this one.
“We’ve already discussed this ad nauseam Peter, I’ve made my position very clear and I have no intention of deviating from it” He didn’t even look up from his paperwork, his very body language left Peter in no doubt that he was being dismissed.
“Can she hear us do you think?” The voice was strained and anxious
‘Yes, I can hear you but I can’t see you; where are you? Where am I?’
“Doctor, it’s been 3 months, do you think that there’s any chance at all now that she’ll recover? Please be honest” The plea was desperate, there was naked longing in the voice which cried out for an answer, any answer.

No, sorry, not you. I’m referring to those inconsiderate, mindless, pathetic morons whose idea of fun is to ‘spam’ people. I have just spent the last 15 minutes deleting 463 spam messages from either bots or brainless bastards who want to sell me funeral flowers, payday loans or aquaponics (whatever the hell they are) and I am annoyed!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! All you lovely, possibly deranged, people out there who have followed my blog! I am sincerely very, very grateful to each and every one of you for the support that you’ve given me over the last year and for your warmth and kindness. The blogging community is something very special and I am honoured to be part of it
HAPPY NEW YEAR! How have you all been? I hope that Christmas was all that you hoped it would be and that you’ve had a great start to 2019! As for me, I arrived back home last night after an 8 hour drive and, what turned out to be, a very enjoyable break in Rome. There was the odd emotional moment but I let them come and they did…and then they went but there were also some very happy moments, some of which I thought I’d share with you…
After much soul searching, worrying and general stress (all self-inflicted) I have decided to go to Rome for Christmas. I have decided to give myself permission to feel sad if the need comes upon me, to politely duck out of something if I need to be alone and to enjoy what I can without feeling guilty about doing so.
