He also brought home a letter saying he's one of six children from his class who have been invited to the end of year awards ceremony next Tuesday. Every teacher has to choose 6 children and the ceremony is held in the evening and is by invitation only. It's a big event for the pupils and we're really looking forward to it. Might have to do a few smiling lessons before we go.
Amy has finished her work experience week at the cats home. She's really enjoyed it and thankfully seems able to separate business from pleasure; I'm pleased to report there are no new additions to Number 38's household.
I've managed to make some jigsaw people over the past couple of days. I'm going to have to get a bigger board as I'm finding it hard to work in different pieces. I spent ages looking for a piece only to realise I'd already used it in a part I've already done.
And I know I've already done a strawberry shot this week but just look how these have come on in the past couple of days. I'm going to get Thomas to pick them for me tomorrow.
We went to see Tom this morning. He's not been too good over the past couple of days. He was awake all Tuesday night coughing up blood and told me he thought he was on his way out. It's really hard knowing what to say to that. Trying to balance understanding of how frightened he must feel with a 'there's plenty of life left in you yet' positiveness can be tough. Anyway, the blood thing seems to have stopped but he's struggling with his breathing. He usually comes out with us in the week but apart from going to the dining room hasn't moved from his room since his party last Saturday.
I will say this, the care he's getting is absolutely brilliant. He really couldn't be in a better place. I'm just praying that over the coming months any side effects of the cancer don't become too traumatic for him.
