I'm going to stay with my sister today - and I am so excited. It will be so lovely to spend some time with her. Since our mother died, my sisters and brothers have become even more precious than they were before.

I've got past the awful unhinged grief I was feeling in the spring, and now the sadness pays just an occasional visit. Sometimes it comes for several days, sometimes it swoops in for the morning and then swoops out again. Yesterday I was baking a coffee cake for the village fete, and listening to some music and a song came on with the lines "You're a long way from somewhere you call home...." and I started to cry. I cried for the whole track, then I rang my friend for a chat and then I felt better. Good. On with the cake.
