“Yes my beautiful wife we’re all going too. It’s all arranged I’ve got a locum in at the practice, Callie’s going to work full time while we’re away, and she’s arranged for Gladys to help out, I’ve arranged for Nate to have an extra week off school, and we are going to have the best time ever for three whole weeks. How does that sound?”

“But are you sure Callie is well enough to be working full time, I know she’s in remission, but she’s only been used to working part-time since she was ill?” Lucy asked, concerned for her friend.

Ed smiled and nodded. “I’ve checked and double-checked with her, and she insists that she’ll be fine. Dr Kindler is going to keep a close eye on her, as is everyone else. You know what she’s like, she’s been chomping at the bit to come back properly for ages, so she’s thrilled.”

“So, are we going with Granpy and Grandpops or not, Dad?” asked Nate jumping up and down.

“Yes, we are. We’re all going to see Auntie Sophie.”

“God did I ever tell you how much I love you?” Lucy asked, hugging Ed tightly.

“Often, but I tell you what let’s get these two to bed early tonight and you can show me how much.” Ed laughed as he kissed Lucy.

“Okay,” she giggled and looked down at her shoes.
