As days go, this is not one of the best.
My mum was taken into hospital on the weekend, has had a very serious operation, and is now in intensive care where things are, quite literally, touch-and-go.
It's hard to write stuff for the blog when things in life happen like this. I don't want to somehow lessen the seriousness of what's been going on or how I feel by feeling obliged to type my usual rubbish.
She is very, very ill and I must be with my dad in Southport.
I probably won't be writing my blog for a while. ' Happy Star Wars Day' for tomorrow...
