Hello hello. Feels like ages since I’ve posted, but it’s only a couple of days. Thanks for all the ideas about rhinos. We are thinking them all through at the moment. And there’s some prototype development going on, which is exciting because that sounds as though we are developing a new jet engine or something.
Guess what we did on Saturday? Any ideas? No? We went to the posh hotel. You remember, the one that Rosie took us to and we only lasted two hours at. I think I’d mentioned that they had transferred her booking and payment to a weekend of our choice. Well, we decided to go on Bonfire Night. Toby didn’t want to come, so we took cousin Alex instead, who Rosie was very close to. And what a time we had – swimming in an outdoor heated pool; eating lovely things; going to Longleat which was down the road to see a really spectacular fireworks display; and me and Alex had a bit of pampering done. The only thing which was a bit/very disappointing depending who you were, was that Sylvie was considered too young to have any pampering. Still, we were all very relaxed by the end of it.
Now, I need to unleash a real Team Kilburn moment. The big Team Kilburn, not just the inner team kilburn. Last week, a really lovely person called Hannah contacted us via Rosie’s blog. She has just been diagnosed with the same liver cancer as Rosie and she is going into hospital tomorrow for a liver resection on Thursday (That’s when a chunk of liver is sliced out, and then miraculously your liver grows back). Rosie’s blog started after all that bit of unpleasantness had happened, but Hannah and I had a good long chat about things. I know this is a really nerve-wracking time for Hannah and her family and friends, so could we all just have a big joint sending Hannah all our positive thoughts and good wishes to help her through the next few weeks.
And now -what’s that? What’s the picture at the start of this post? Oh, that’s two young dudes relaxing at a posh hotel.
