I must quote my late mother Dot today.  Dot was always coming out with wise little ditties and sayings, but one always stuck in my mind.

Today is Dot’s funeral.  I will have 25 people for lunch following the service at the crematorium, and then afterwards will have to go to Addenbrooke’s for another radiotherapy treatment.  As you can imagine, today is not a good day.

However, my mother’s words ring in my head at this time.  If she were still alive she would be ringing my phone and telling me:

‘Sometimes in life you have to do things that you don’t want to do.’

Profound words, eh?

That’s all for today. See you tomorrow. x
