Today started off with Jasper determining what time I was to awaken. This of course is quite normal. The husband and I had to be at an appointment by 10, and seeing as it’s half term, this meant the girls going with us. I had sneakily said to be ready at 9am to [...]
My brother, Malcolm, wrote this in 2002, just before his 50th birthday on 17th February.
Today would have been his 61st birthday. I’d like to think his idea of Birthday Aid could continue, even after ten years and further still. [...]
