I can't stop crying – this house is dead without hearing my mother's voice. Vivien and Ray made me go for a walk with them to the village hides this evening, which I found very difficult, but got there in the end. A Heron was in front of hide one, lots of hirundines skimming over the pool, a Kestrel, Marsh Harrier and Common Buzzard were seen.
Lucy seems a little better and seems to want to come over to join us either tomorrow or Sunday – I really hope she does as we need to support each other. Tried to sort a few errands today, like taking all mother's medication back to BOOTS, dropping things into the undertakers etc. Quite a bit of rain today and wonderfully cool!
