The nurses did all they could, crackers and all, to make Christmas a family affair and set a table up by Rob’s bed so that we could have Christmas lunch together. We did not trust that the pigs in blankets would be up to scratch so had some delivered from trusty Cam butchers which we cooked in the morning and took in. It was a good plan that Rob very much appreciated judging by the number he ate! Kirsty livened up the whole ward by taking in her dancing and singing Christmas tree which went down well but a pity we could not turn it off once it started!!
