Five people you meet in heaven

It's been a wearing week. A frantic call to emergency services in the small hours, ambulance on it's way, ambulance not on it's way, mad dash to hospital with my baby -who thankfully now appears well to all except myself. Mamas see deeper than others when it comes to their babies.

I fear my fight to save a beautiful tree in our village could be all but over. It's not over yet. The decision hasn't been announced but I can feel the vibe. I feel I've failed - the tree, myself, my children and all who benefit from both green spaces and an open and ethical system of decision making within local government.

Our beloved Polly, the quirkiest hen that we have known slipped away in her sleep this week. Merlin is flat. We don't know if she is ill or mourning.

I've been reading some of Mitch Albom's work. It's probably not what I would have chosen in a book store but my sister bought them for nana and I felt intrigued. I've read Tuesdays with Morrie and am now onto Five People You Meet In Heaven. Thought provoking.

On a brighter note Miles has been helping to plant bulbs at his Steiner group and Hermione is having guests for a 'Come Dine With Me' evening later. We are making a main course and friends are bringing the other courses. I only hope they don't expect a large cash prize!

Oh my goodness! Hope this week is calmer xx

We're going to the Baltic on Thursday if you fancy it?

Awww, I'd have loved to Sarah but I've promised myself that we will get some 'work' done this week because I know H won't do any next week, what with all the half term activities and stuff. Was great to see you today - even if I am in a bit of a spaced out stressy world of my own right now :-)
