Saturday 17th July

A sunny and rainy friend and fun filled week on the Isle of Wight - fabulous and awful all at the same time like every moment with her now. But we were all together in her little island house where we have so many wonderful memories of both our amazing children. In a last-minute panic that this simply cannot be her last week here we've moved all our tenants for the summer into other helpful houses so that Rose can come and go from the beach for as long as she can or wants to. Corfu might be off but with a bit of hospital support and lots of painkillers there's nothing stopping her from a few more weeks of seaside life. Links are set up with St Mary's in Newport and the local GP, prescriptions faxed about from the mainland and we are coming back in a few days for as long as we can.
