Those of you who read my blog will have noticed I haven’t written anything for a week or so. At the end of today’s blog I will explain because we had some really sad news at the weekend but first I will update my Story Telling news .

We had a lovely afternoon Story Telling at Wick Court last Thursday with a school from Putney. Today I have been telling stories to young people from Vauxhall. My busy last week finished with a delightful day at Uley Primary on the Friday. It was a foul day and I got soaked cycling there and had a mechanical in the rain going home! I did a mixture of poems and stories.

Having mentioned children from Vauxhall we were close to there yesterday as we visited Tate Britain to see their Impressionists in London exhibition.

My sad news is we were devastated to hear my sister Liz was taken seriously ill on Friday night and put into Intensive Care. We rushed up to Altrincham but sadly she lost the fight on Sunday night. It was a complete shock to all of us. The one thing that stood out was the amazing job the NHS do, the staff at the hospital were brilliant. One nurse explained to me how the government’s proposed pay award is a joke. So I did leave making extremely rude comments about Mr Hunt our Health Secretary and the absolute mess he has made of our precious NHS-actually you could say the mess the government has made of all our public services.

My lovely little sister worked for the NHS for many years. She was a talented physiotherapist who did invaluable work with patients with MS.

RIP Liz you will be missed by all of us.
