Missed two fasts last week due to camping in sub-zero temperatures and attending exhausting classes all day, which was enough! But eating only what one can be bothered to cook in a small tent keeps intake pretty minimal!

Back on track this week with two fasting days. It's weird how much the hunger feelings have diminished to almost nothing during the day.

On the 4th I was told to go to over. We dropped everything in the lap of a good friend and caught the 1.25am train from Calais. By 2am we were in England but the hospital said to leave visiting until later as dad was sleeping comfortably. We arrived at the hospital on Friday 5th and one look told me it was the end. I stayed with him most of that day. I met the consultant and agreed no heroics. We had to return home on the night ferry as we had people arriving in our Gite on Saturday. We had just arrived home when the call came tomsay he died on the Saturday. So ends 30 years of looking after him and fighting his battles. It took three weeks to sort out the funeral. It was very quiet,...
