And another whole month...
Has nearly ended.

My head has just about recovered from the joys of a lot of work in a short space of time, and can I have a "Hell Yeah!" for this sacred thing that is "time off" ? I think I can!
The taxes have duly been done and filed, the illustration competition entered unto, and the Grandfather has finally decided to stop driving.
The latter is somewhat sad, but the wandering mind was beginning to cause a bit of concern - certainly if he was knocking on the door near 11 at night, as he did on a couple of occasions - fortunatly Mum was staying at the time, so she could see first hand.
It's heartbreaking to watch someone that one has known all one's life, start to decline. His scans revealed that there was some slow dysfunction happening in the brain, and it is suspected that he has had a couple of tiny strokes that exacerbated this.

Gods know I'm looking forward to visiting my other grandparent - Grandma - though.
She's the oldest of all, and still (fingers crossed) as on to it as ever she was. Will be staying with her for a few weeks very soon, I love her with all my heart.

And the prospect of a month of nothing to do but scribble, drink tea, and do cryptic crosswords with the G'ma - truly does make me a happy chicken.
