MasterM has not been at all well
and so I dropped everything
to go and spend time with him.
It is hard enough starting at university
- new people, new places, new ideas -
without catching swine flu.
When I finally arrived
I was shocked to see
how much weight he had lost.
We went out and bought a belt
and now at least his trousers will stay up.
Sometimes you really need your Mum...
and there is no shame in that.
