Dance the Ghost with Me

(no subject)

Wow, sorry for disappearing on you all. My Mam just showed up in London and asked me to go to Dublin with her for a few weeks. And I'm back as suddenly as I left.

Is everyone alright? I made sure Jamie and Renee were ok when I heard what happened in London, but I wanted to make sure everyone else made it through safely. Comments please?

I actually had a really good time with my mother, which is an amazing thing. Generally we get together for a lunch a few times a year and that's as much as we can take. Or at least as much as she can take. But I think she's stating to feel older and she needed me around for some reason. Either way, it was worth it to see her, even if I did have to deal with the terrors that inhabit the bodies of my step siblings.

I still can't call her "mam" to her face. She took me to her gallery and she took a few pictures of me and she showed me how to work her special camera. Even though I don't remember that now! And I spent a few days, walking around Dublin, just remembering things from my childhood, and of course, avoiding The Terrors. It was a really good trip.

But I am back in your midst now. Jamie and Renee, I am especially sorry to you, for taking off without much of a warning or explanation, leaving explaining to the phone, which is never as good as face to face. But I am safe, and I hope you are both well. We should get together soon, as I am dying to tell you both about everthing.

Oh, and Caitlin (Mam) is visiting again in August and would like to meet you. Eee.
