Too busy to blog it - but it's great (mostly)

I try to write a blog entry every day - indeed, I feel an irrational guilt if I don't put something up by midnight and it takes an exceptional day for me to miss out completely - but that happened yesterday. So perhaps this is goin to turn into another of those "geeze look at my busy day posts".

Started - 05:30 preparing breakfast for 06:00. Ended - 00:45 when we got back from the RUH (Royal United Hospital) in Bath. In between ... a day of training a full class of eight. The usual "stuff" of running a business. Telephone calls to return to the press concerning the train petition that I started late last week and has now got over 600 signatures, including 5 MPs and 3 MEPs. A meeting of Melksham First to push forward on their plans for town rejuevanisation.

May I quote from a letter received on the train 'side' of things? " Just a letter of thanks to say there are a lot of us that have not been involved that appreciate your efforts. Unfortunately, those who commute usually have a job to do ....".

Funnily enough, I have a job to do - several of them. But time can be and is made. Yesterday was the exception in terms of length and I may suffer tiredness today, by that's how it goes. I have to say I enjoy the "zing". I really appreciate notes such as the one I've quoted above. And I really, really appreciate the help and support of all of those around - work colleagues and especially family and double plus especially Lisa. Couldn't do half of it without her.

You notice a "mostly" in my title. The trip to the RUH was because my son had just been in a road traffic accident and - well - I just WANT to be there and offer family support and I felt that we were useful last night as the events unfolded. Although it was a fraught evening (with a touch of black comedy when they reported that they had lost the patient); although Chris remained in hospital overnight, in the huge scheme of things it could have been so much worse and it brought familiy together.
