Ah, you gorgeous Planetarians with your big hearts! I really appreciate all your kindness and messages of support about my Dad and his health battles. We are learning to take each day at a time much more and not planning too far ahead. We hope he will be home for Easter and that he can go to church with our family at his beloved St David’s Cathedral on Easter Day. The dynamics in our wider family are shifting as we all adjust to Dad’s new circumstances. We’re not sure of his prognosis but realise each day with him is to be cherished more than ever. As scary and as horrible as all this process is, it’s also positive in that Dad can be involved in making decisions while he still can.
My brain is awhirl with thoughts about moving to our new house, selling our Sydney apartment and the logistics of changing the pixies’ schooling and daycare arrangements whilst all the while, Dad is never far from my thoughts.
We have always been very close. I was his firstborn and we share many personality traits and interests so there’s always been a beautiful and precious connection between us. Today I just want to share this gorgeous photo of the two of us when I must have been about India’s age.
Oh, now I’m crying. I think it captures the essence of our relationship so perfectly.
Given my current distraction and worry, I’m just not in the headspace to blog as I had planned today. I hope you understand.
However, Mr PB is taking a week or so off starting tonight so I will have more time to blog soon. I want to show you the divine café in our new neighbourhood I mentioned here, take you on another wander around Salamanca Market and announce my giveaway. I’ve had such fun choosing the goodies! So stay tuned – same bat time, same bat channel…
