annus horribilis

I shall be taking a short break from blogging to recover from the latest instalment of the horrible year.

Yesterday Mack died! It was unexpected and has totally knocked the stuffing out of me. This follows on from the dreadful news that my Mother in law is gravelly ill and the hospital is about to withdraw life support.

Julia is still in Indianapolis and will need to stay a while to support her dad, I am alone with Indy but thankfully have had some visits from a friend to help me. Thank God for real friends.

About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 36 years and have 2 grown up children. I did the usual thing and replaced children with dogs when the nest became empty, best thing I ever did (apart from getting married of course). Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot! I love lots of things but in the past have never really stuck with them long enough to be good at them, I am trying harder to be better at a few things rather than okay at loads of things. There is still plenty of time. :-D
