No More Cake

We took a cake round to K's. I'm not saying it was a bad idea- exactly- but John was the one who loved cake and the rest of us could happily do without- Ailz and K because they're supposed to be dieting and me because I'm really not that fond of the stuff. Next time we'll do something different.

Specifically we'll pick K up from home and take him into Manchester. He's restless. He doesn't like being in the house if he can be somewhere else

He gave us a couple of books that had been John's. As keepsakes, perhaps, but more, I think, because he wants rid of the reminders. If we hadn't taken them they'd have ended up on a charity book stall.  He was making a point of sitting in what had been John's chair. "I don't want to create a shrine," he said.
