    Death In The Family

    My mother in law has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer ( she’s 80 and has had a 20 a day habit for 65 years so she’s done OK) and has secondary brain cancer. She had a dose of radiotherapy on Friday as part of her palliative care plan. The medics aren’t being very forthcoming about the prognosis and I feel a bit awkward about asking. The situation is weird as nobody seems to know whether we are talking about weeks, months or even a couple of years. She is on a decent dose of steroids and her speech is very slurred. She is heavily fixating on trivia, especially her forthcoming birthday bash next weekend, and is bollocking all and sundry for basic day to day errors such as buying the wrong flavour jam. I don’t whether this is as a result of fear, a need to cling onto some semblance of normality or whether she is losing her marbles. The whole situation is stressful for everyone due to uncertainty, a lack of information and her general behaviour. This seems bad to say, but I hope this doesn’t go on for too long as it is driving everybody nuts.

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Went to see The Breeders on Wednesday at the Institute inBirmngham. Excellent night and a rare opportunity to see them in this country. Well supported by a young Dutch quartet - their name escapes me at present.

    Luther Vandross

    I will be eternally grateful to Luther. I was dating a young lady in my youth at the start of the 90s and after two minutes of listening to him in our parked car she used to 'lose her inhibitions' . RIP Luther!
