Apart from the whole death of my car farrago in the past week, I've also been distracted by a couple of other things. The most important of these is that my step-grandad is dying. He's been in hospital for a good while now, with alll sorts of illnesses related to both his old age and his years of smoking, but he worsened in the past week. My gran was called in with the rest of the family late last week with a warning that he would probably go within a few hours, but he managed to fight back from the edge - something he's done 3 times in the last 2 years.
Tonight, though, may be his final night. My dad came to find us at the pub to tell us that he's fading fast. My gran, mum and most of the family are at the hospital, but my brother, sister and I have had a few drinks so we thought we'd better stay away.
Anyway, blogging will be scarce the next few days. I just don't feel like it right now.
