Well, life is what happens when you’re making other plans, right? After only one week of participating in the NaNoWriMo writing challenge, my mother was carted – unexpectedly – off to hospital. After a five and a half hour drive to be with her, I found out the news was anything but good.

Fast forward to today, and we see my lovely mum ensconced in a nursing home; a very sad day for the whole family, especially my mother. Naturally, I’ve had little else on my mind and have been lurching from day to day, just surviving the demands and the worry of the past few weeks, while saddled with chronic and disabling health issues.

Nano – I bid you adieu until next year.
