Now I did want to do the bike lock in the place that it is more commonly used, around the back tire. However, it seems that Matt has locked it to his handlebars and then hidden the keys away so it will just have to do like this.
Yesterday didn't quite go to plan. I gutted Matt's room which was as expected - DISGUSTING. I'm sure he is trying to cultivate new life forms in there.
Yesterday afternoon I completely ignored Eleanor's advice *sorry Eleanor I am going to listen to you today* and did some more work and then popped across the road to see a really good friends of ours. I knew her partner had been taken into hospital after having a fit on Saturday and I was going to see him as he was due home on Tuesday. My friend was distraught as not only is he still in hospital he is being transferred miles away to North Staffs for a brain biopsy as the MRI scans revealed a dark patch on his brain, his speech is starting to slur and he has had more episodes. This is from a 41 year old builder who on Friday was as fit as a fiddle, so much so that he was taking his 2 daughters (same ages as our sons) on a bike ride on Saturday morning when it first happened. I sat with my friend for about an hour yesterday just talking as she is going through the terrible stage where you just don't know what's happening or what's wrong.
I can completely understand the frustration of this from when Pete was diagnosed with Kidney failure 9 years ago - it took an amazing 3 months for Pete to get a biopsy and then another 5 months to get the results. During this time we were led to believe he would need a transplant before Christmas, we even went to North Staffs for the transplant assessment and now 9 years on he is still not on dialysis or the transplant list, thankfully. It took a long time but now my outlook on life is don't worry about it until it happens otherwise you could worry your life away for no reason.
Enjoy every day!
