It has been a week of friends visiting us at Gay Capri. As time moves on, and it gets closer to our departure date, it will be nice to see people that we have not seen in a while, as well as keep in contact with those who are close and those who have become closer at this time.
Imogen Rose Hooper
Of course, Imogen is a regular visitor to Capri now, along with her Mother Kirsty. Never thought I would fall in love with a baby, but she is adorable. Everyone who lives here looks forward to seeing her and I want to see her as often as I can myself, before we go. This old Queen has gone gaga over a baby!
Natalee Michelle got to hold Baby Imogen for the first time this week. Despite the scared look in her face, she took to it like a duck to water. How could anyone not fall for the charms of a baby. I know I can't.
Natalee has had a busy week. She said when she came over last night that she was tired and had a 3.30am start in the morning.
Caring is a hard job, I have discovered that from Natalee, during her time caring for the citizens of Southampton. She is well able to do it. She proved that after looking after me, when I relapsed in April. She was a godsend at that time and remains so now!
I think Jay has fallen for Imogen, but unlike the rest of us, he is well able to look after her. I get scared when I see something so small and dependent. I love giving her a cuddle, but do find the fragility of new life so challenging.
I admire any Mother who has to bring up a baby alone, but at least Kirsty is secure in the knowledge that she has a large network of friends. Jay is especially good with her and loves spending time looking after Imogen. It does come natural for Jay and he is fantastic with her!
Jason and I have had such a rough time of it recently, that it is nice to have people coming in and out, providing some happy memories and cheering me up at least. That is what life should have always been about!
SJ in a dress, now there is a memory I wont forget and she looked great too. To be honest, I think she may have liked it a little too much!
In many ways, I am now creating perfect memories to take with me to Spain. This is far more important to me than others, but then I am a very different person to most.
When you have had such a bad time, so many low points and had to deal with some of the worst life can throw at you, you have to change every aspect of it, including your memories.
My medication is working fine now. I am much happier and enjoying life for a change. In fact I am determined to celebrate every last day here at Gay Capri.
Christopher Bunday, who is still living with us, is creating some experiments in anti gravity. Chris seems to know what he wants to achieve, I still can't make head nor tail out of it!
On Sunday, Our Jamie and Kirsty popped around again. Jamie looked a little worse of wear. We spent god knows how long looking for them.
I did think Kirsty was going to kill him at one stage. Jamie being Jamie, just continued laughing!
That was the week that was!
