We've booked a last minute holiday to Oman leaving tomorrow.
Minor disaster in that I forgot to get Cam a new passport and it's run out, so a meeting in tears at The Passport office in Victoria was the result.. and I'm so grateful to the teller there.
When I showed her the evidence of our story, she was wonderful. What a kind and lovely lady. She helped us out and after a meeting on Wed, we got the passport on Monday. Amazing.
RBS have recinded Paul's existing travel insurance - in fact they were really quite mean on the phone, making it VERY clear that they were no longer insuring Paul.. I think their staff need some training on how to deal with terminal illness sufferers. Considering I've banked with them all my life, i felt horribly disappointed..
To make matters worse, they even kept saying they'd be writing to me just so make absolutely clear that we're not covered by them any longer (Thanks a lot. Not) They really weren't very nice at all..
But lovely Sharn from Allclear insurance got us a deal, and it wasn't as much as I thought.
Plus Paul's school has given us compassionate leave.
The headteacher couldn't have been kinder.
Hurrah for small victories!
We can be a normal family going on a normal vacation and not think about the surgery in 10 days time.
Poor P.. as much as he laughs about it, the flipping steroids are puffing him up a bit - even though he's doing so much cycling and is probably the fittest he's been.
