This blog was never meant to be a diary or chronicle of my life. But, life has got in the way and I'm afraid there will be little of thoughts from the Donut for the foreseeable future and, for today at least, a bit about what's happened to me and my kith.

A week ago my father suffered a very bad stroke. He was left for 20 hours before being found, as my disabled mother was in respite care. It's been a stressful week for the family. My dad's prognosis is not good, but he's made some progress. It's (cliche time) day-to-day. My sibs and I have had to make emergency provision for my mum as we're not able to care for her. At least she is safe for a month or so.

So, it's not clear what's going to happen.

Family comes first.
