With Son Number One well and truly launched on his way to his wedding at the weekend, today just got better still.
Today, Son Number Two (the Marathon des Sables man) started a new job in a very large business down in London after a longish period of uncertainty. It has certainly put a spring in his step and he can start to plan his life once again. He planned Oli's stag weekend with great success and so we all wish him all the best in the new job. He certainly deserves it.
Over the years I have lost a few people who were dear to me to cancer. Phil & Tini are a wonderful couple, whose lives must have been 'on hold' for the last year with Phil's cancer - but to see them together you would never have noticed it. Well, this evening I had an unexpected call. Phil (aka Lord Elpus) rang to let me know that the results are back from hospital and he is 'all clear'. This is amazingly great news which has lifted a colossal weight from His & Miss Whiplash's shoulders. All quite emotional stuff!
A bloody good day.
