I had the most wonderful dream that I was walking in bluebell woods, just as I had really done a few weeks before with Joe, when I took this picture. In my dream it was the warmest and most pleasant of days, and I was indignant when I was woken from this dream, not once but repeatedly.

Woken by my kind jolly anaesthetist to say that all was well, the operation was over, and the clock hands had mysteriously turned through two hours.

Five more days until my operation – I feel a strange mixture of hope and fear. Hope that this will finally “fix” me.

Meanwhile Julie has been keeping me distracted: another crisis, written about in more detail on my JuliesMum blog (for those that like to read these details). But so far this week, I’m glad to say, she has managed a wobbly calm.
