Difficult day got better
A very difficult morning of juggling work, personal stuff and tiredness (from a lovely social excursion last night) topped off by my mum exceeding herself in the awkwardness stakes. Not quite sure how I managed to stay sane through it all but every obstacle has a silver lining and Ash completely rose to the occasion. I've noticed this before actually. When I really need him he's still there for me and that makes all the difference. So not all bad and then lunch with one of my oldest friends (from primary school - 52 years and counting) who listened and listened and listened while it all came pouring out. Felt much better afterwards and once again I realised the value of friends.
