Its a very wet Sunday in January. The rain is battering against the window of our cottage as I rattle my fingers on the keyboard. Nothing is going to dampen my mood today. My devoted Labrador has his paw gently resting on my foot. His gentle snore is almost in time with my feed pump whirring away as it installs nourishment into my belly.
In a couple of hours I’m going to leave the cosy sitting room and brave the weather. Why? To meet up with fellow patients and their friends and family. This time one of the patient’s are kindly giving up their ‘front room’ for us all to have a blether and a cuppa. What’s this known as – Net Natter. We get together through the Scottish Charity The Ann Edgar Charitable Trust.
