Well my love, I am still watching "Pointless" on the TV - old habits die hard!
I leave work late afternoon to come home and knock around the house so that I can irritate Sophie. I flick the telly on and there are Alexander and Richard still chuntering on trying to get us all to give pointless answers. It makes me think of all the days in and out of hospital where we would rely on the these two boys to get us through the 5.15 to 6pm slot.
Even on your very last day with us - 20 November, I made everyone who was in the house come and sit in your room and watch Pointless. You were totally out of it - due to all the medication and as we now know slowly preparing for your final departure. At some level I really hope you knew we were all there and could hear Alexander and Richard bantering away.
Anyway, in my bleaker moments, I sometimes think that ironically "Pointless" is how life feels without you - but then I give myself a good talking to and try to think of "Pointless" as simply a game show that we enjoyed watching together.
On the subject of TV - The final episodes of Homeland were fantastic, but missed having you next to me to ooh and ah. Also big, big confession - tonight StarGazing, series 3 with - Brain Cox and Dara O'Brian has been usurped for BBC4 and a chemistry program on the elements - blame Sophie the Chemist!
Lots of love
|Brian and Dara|
|Alexander and Richard!|
