Yes - it is fun Sue, - and I wish I could come here more often too, but they are cracking down on what they called "unauthorised use of the Internet" in my office at the moment, so I have to be a bit careful during working hours, and when I'm at home there is just so much to do.
And thanks for your concerns about David - it's appreciated. And you are right in what you say - while it was the tournament that upset him in this instance, it is true to say that his Dad's death hit him very hard, and he is still very emotional and less likely to deal with extraneous things that he would have ignored or laughed off last year. It is almost 9 years since my Mother died, but I still get "bad" days when I hear a song on the radio or see something on TV and it reminds me of her and makes me cry - so it must be so hard for him, especially when you consider David's age, the fact that his Father had not been ill so the family had no time to prepare, and also the fact that David was there when it happened - he just needs time and patience.
Anyway - thanks again - and while I think of it - I'm going to have lunch with some friends at Stoke Park (where the exhibition is) tomorrow, so I'll try and find out if Nico is gong to be there like he was last year or not.
