thank you

to everyone who commented on my previous post and sent good wishes for my mum :) 

it seems to have done the trick as mum is now out of hospital after a really nasty bout of pneumonia. 

we're hoping mum will be able to travel back to london in the next couple of days so i'll be heading down on the sleeper armed with lots of recipes for warming, healing soups and yummy baking.

thanks also to all of the lovely nursing staff and doctors who took really good care of mum while she was in hospital in stockholm, mum can't speak highly enough of the good care that she received, and i don't just mean the medical attention, the nurses all took time to pop in to spend a little time with mum (she was in isolation and feeling quite scared and lonely) and all patiently spoke in english to my mum and around my mum.  it really helped to make a difference and is much appreciated.
