Rosie sort of made a list of things she was trying to get strong enough to do. You know – the one with the pub lunch on it. Instead of getting sad about the things she didn’t manage to do, we are working our way through the list and doing them for her. It was Sylvie’s turn to choose, so on Sunday a big group of her Southampton family (well, it is our family too) went to Rosie’s favourite Chinese restaurant in Southampton, Kachina. We had a lovely time. But why did we all eat so much ????
And . . . do you remember the posh hotel she treated us to, that we only spent two hours at because Rosie’s stupid stupid cancer couldn’t even let her have one night off, and decided to give her a massive internal bleed? Well, they happily transferred her payment and she was still planning on going back there. So we are off there, with Cousin Alex, at the beginning of November. And we’ve found out there’s fireworks at Longleat, so we can even fulfil that part of her plan and not miss any bonfires.
Toby came over and saw us, which was very nice. He is settling into uni, and he helped us eat some cake we’d been sent. We are teaching Calum to email people, so he has decided he will tell Toby what he has eaten every day. Food is Cal’s favourite subject, you see.
I don’t know why almost every bit of this post is about food. But it is.
