I cannot say I am sad to wave goodbye to May,
It has been a historic and monumental month for us, and many more families, and one that, frankly, I cant wait to see the back of.
We said goodbye to May with a Bank holiday weekend barbecue, after one of the crappiest weekends for a while, it would have been a nice way to end an awful month, if everyone had behaved themselves.
The weather was typical of that of a bank holiday, it was deceivingly sunny in the morning, but as soon as every house within a mile's radius had got the barbie's out the sun was nowhere to be seen, we were barbecuing in hoodie's, and if your Alex, dressing gowns.
My sweet Oli spent last night staying with Jack's family, she wasn't feeling good when we picked her up this afternoon, and so has slept all day; she is improving daily, and the improvement in her mobility in the short time she has been home is amazing, she can get around so much better.
The operation on his leg lasted 9 hours, and went well, it looks like he is keeping it, of course he is very uncomfortable, as Oli was, but in a few weeks he will be firmly on the mend, the latest in a trail of improvements, I know there are so many kind souls praying for them all, You know what?
I think they're working just beautifully.
Not much to say; Just amazed at how well and badly things can go at the same time; and so glad to welcome June; I have such hopes for this month; Olivia's continued improvements and life returning as near as it can ever now be to normal, The round up of my exams and some carefree fun;
we shall see,
Until next time my sweethearts,
