So I was working in the London office yesterday and in the afternoon I received a text from my mum which said "call me asap" - never a good message to get. She was at the hospital where my stepdad had been taken because he was feeling very unwell. He was shaking and clearly not alright in the ambulance on the way there but he was talking and joking with people as was his way. When they got to the hospital he suffered a heart attack but they could not restart his heart.
He was only 60 although he had never lived the healthiest of lifestyles and had been ill for a while, but it was still a bit of a shock. They had been married for 10 years and I think they would both say it was happier than their previous marriages had ever been.
Also I started reading The Road yesterday on the train journey to London, great book but entirely too depressing for right now, yeesh.
