Sister was going to see Nan today so arranged that I she would pick me up and take me as well. Nan looked a lot better than she did in the hospital which was good although she is so thin now and realises it as she kept saying look at my arms. She went from present day to flitting around to different times she has lived through. Kept us on our toes working out when abouts she was talking about.

After that we met my mum and dad at Nans house as they are clearing it out ready for housing association to have it back and had some glass ware and dishes that they or my unlcle didnt want , amazing what memories they bought back but sad to see the house looking so bare it doesnt look like the home I spent many summers in.

Then went round to uncles house to drop some paperwork off and stayed for a cuppa, nothing unusual about that except it is 12 years since I last saw him, have spoken to him in that time but not seen him, think we have both changed a bit but he was still the Uncle I remember from all those years ago.

Have now got the start of a trifle in the bowl Nan used to make trifle in when we went to tea and a jelly setting in the jelly dish she used when we were there which has bought nice memories back.

Afraid wasnt much company for sister as I fell asleep on the way to Nans and then on the way home as well, good job it wasnt me driving lol
