Just to let you know...

Hello lovely readers, I just wanted you to know that there is a chance I'll be a bit MIA from blogging for the next week as I'm going to stay with my granny to be her carer (she has Alzheimer's - which I'd be happy to write a post about from personal experiences if you'd be interested?).  While I intend to take my laptop I can't be sure of good internet connections, nor blogging opportunities as I'll be providing 24hour care so I'll be pretty busy and tired!!  

I'm looking forward to spending time with my beautiful Granny, but I'm also nervous - it's so hard not to let all the sadness I feel on her behalf really get me down.  Imagine not knowing who your own family are, and then just accepting that this person you don't recognise is staying in your house just because they told you they are.  Anyway, she's hilarious and I'm sure we'll have a laugh, and I'm looking forward to reading to her (we read The Woodlanders by Thomas Hardy when I cared for her in January - I wonder what it'll be this time?!) and I really hope she'll want to watch a bit of the Olympics (which I am very excited about!).

Sorry if this is a bit of a strange and personal post, I just wanted to keep you all in the loop! 

Hopefully I'll get a chance to blog, if not, I'll be back in a week! I hope you are all well, and thank you again for reading the random collection of words that flow from my brain to my fingers and on to your screen!
