I haven’t been around for a while as my life has taken several twists and turns, nothing bad, but time consuming and I have missed my friends. I will try and keep up, thank you for being patient. Thanks to Rochelle for never missing a beat and to Stephen Baum for the photo this week.

Throwing the Switch
Martha looked pale and small in the hospital bed. Was she breathing? Harold held her hand; the realisation of his need for her overwhelmed him. It seemed she had always been with him, even before they met. Before the dream became a reality.
As the nursing team carried out their checks, he paced the room, willing her to stay, to come back to him.
‘She’s resting, Mr Jackson, do you want anything?’
I want to stay with her forever
‘No, thank you.’
Martha slowly opened her eyes.
Her voice threw the switch and Harold’s smile lit up the room.
