The Down Sides of Living so far Apart from Family

Had a message on the answer phone last night when I got in to say that my Nana, who is nearly 94, is ill. She’d apparently been out on Wednesday and yesterday was very tired and listless. I haven’t had much news this morning, my Dad is visiting her at lunchtime.

All my instincts told me to jump on a train this morning and go down there, but there is work to think of. If she’s no better this afternoon, I expect I’ll go down after work. I just wish they were nearer in situations like this.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.

  1. i can sympathise
    i can sympathise with you completely on that score. my nan’s been ill too recently and my instincts have been the same but she pulled through. i honestly hope your nan will be okay.

      Thanks Kay, she’s a lot better today, so it looks like she’s pulling through this time. She’s 94 in December so I guess these things will happen.
