Things are looking up. My mother was allowed to go home from hospital today. She sounds very tired and exhausted, but at least she's on the mend and by all accounts received really good care. Whether she will remain healthy long term remains to be seen; it sounds like things are a bit unpredictable. However, she follows the doctors' instructions very closely, so hopefully she can avoid further issues.

My Grandpa's funeral was today. I really wish I could have been there. Strangely, nobody has contacted me at all. I sent my father a text message and I haven't heard back. I'm a bit worried how everybody is taking this, especially my grandmother. They were married nearly 53 years.

I don't really have much else to say today. Sri Lanka were absolutely embarrassing in the cricket. Their bowlers were competent, but almost the whole team totally and utterly failed with the bat. The high point was Muttiah Muralitharan of all people smashing Nathan Bracken for six straight down the park. Shame the game was over a ball later. Also, I am convinced that with every passing game, Bracken looks more and more like a girl I went to school with.

Have a good one, folks.
