Thursday came and went. (27 November 2008)

Yesterday exhausted me. One day off and I get all rusty. I managed a 30 minute run this morning. Up to the Buddah and back. The trees shedding the last of their leaves. I nearly caught a big crispy sycamore...

Today we discussed how to look after elderly parents. It always makes me wonder what I did with any money I had if, at this stage of my life, I can't put my mother up in a 5 star hotel...
