I have walked sideways up to telling Audrey.
All day I have had a thumping head, my BP is high and felt today especially as I had the distinct impression the not telling her was the reason I was suffering so.
After a bracing late afternoon stride along the prom, I came in full of resolve to begin to break our plans to her.
All good so far!
On FaceTime my opening gambit was as usual
‘How are you today?’
‘Miserable and sleeping a lot!’
She then proceeded to tell me a catalogue of woes.
How could I begin to tell her today?
As it happened she asked about my blood pressure which gave me a very subtle in.
‘I have a stonking headache which I am pretty sure is because of my not enjoying living here!’
She knew and said that she wasn’t
at all surprised! That’s what she had been afraid of!
I said we want to come over for chat sometime and left it at that.
We talked on over many and various subjects. After the call ended I felt quietly pleased that I had broached the subject in a careful
way. Allowing her time to mull
over the implications.
A start has been made...
