Short and Sweet

Hello Blighty. I could wax lyrical about what it's like to be home after so long, what it's like to feel like a foreigner in your own country, but I'll save all that.

We arrived Friday morning and on Saturday my Mum was admitted to hospital. She'd had a 'gyppy tummy' and we knew things were serious when she wasn't well enough to pick us up at the airport. Turns out she'd been trying to treat an 'upset stomach' with bio-yogurts, an approach that apparently does little for you if you have acute appendicitis.

I'll keep you posted.

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry! I hope she is doing better, do keep us posted. I checked in to see if you were able to blog, I'm still hoping to hear back from Paris Hilton in case you still need it (her?). I'll put any updates here.

Hope you mum is OK! We miss you guys but are so happy for you to be back home. I was hoping you would blog from the other side of the pond....

Thanks you two for your kind thoughts. Mum is still draining the National Health Service of all all it's excess cash and tea, but might be released by the weekend. Shitty timing, but I'd rather be here than worrying over in the States.

She is providing some truly blogworthy quotes though, my favourite of which is 'this morphine stuff is lovely'.

See you soon!

I just heard about your Mom. I'm so glad you are there. You would be worried sick if you were here.
P.S. book club went to the movies without you tonight : )
