No blog this weekend
Just a brief note this week to say that I won’t be able to post as per normal this weekend. I am currently in Brisbane to say goodbye to my uncle, who recently took a turn for the worse. Things were up and down for the past few weeks, but this week rapidly progressed from “maybe you can come over in a few weeks to see him while he’s still okay” to “come over now or you may be too late”.
This is my mum’s only brother, and our last real tie to her family, since she, Uncle Joe and their parents came here as refugees after World War II. This is obviously a tough time for all of us – especially mum and Uncle Joe’s wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren.
I am staying strong for the moment, and will be spending as much time with my family as possible this weekend, since I won’t be able to stay any longer.
Love to you all, and thank you for reading,
