Hectic day today, doing a course in central London, so getting up early and getting home late. Luckily the City isn’t affected at the moment, but Ealing isn’t too far away , so very conscious of sirens etc. Definitely much higher police presence on the the streets. we live in a quiet area but our local high street has police positioned on most of the major crossroads.
Streets themselves had far fewer people, must admit glad to be home, strange atmosphere.
On a more positive note, he has managed to get out sailing again today , two days in a row – definitely getting stronger!! Family party on Sunday for his dad’s birthday, not only meeting up with his brothers, but also his fifteen year old son, none of whom know about his diagnosis. Think he is feeling apprehensive in case lots of questions about less hair, what he has been up to , why lack of contact etc, he doesn’t want to mislead anyone, but equally feels very strongly that as there is nothing anyone can do , he doesn’t want to cause any extra heartache.
The good news is his son is bringing along a ” girlfriend”, first one introduced to the family , so there will hopefully be no room for any extra news.
