‘It is good to hear your voice,’ Ma says when I call. She's been in the nursing home a month now. It’s been one week and a day since I last saw her. It feels much longer. She is fast disappearing down the rabbit holes of her mind and sometimes it is difficult to find her.
Only an hour ago Beloved and I decided to drive to Edinburgh to pick up Owl and all his belongings. We need to get him home now, before travel becomes restricted. We will do the same for Sunny on Monday. My heart is already beating fast with the anticipation of the 18 hour round trip tomorrow. We will take it in turns driving.
