We're just back from an afternoon chilling out with mates. Pretty much a standard outing....apart from the location being a hospital ward at the RCH. Abi is fighting off a bug and because of her CF needs a few days in the hospital to help her get on top of things. So the boys and I went to hang out and take supplies (read as donuts and twisties....life's essentials, lol). While Mick and I were sitting and yipping, Abi, Kit and Sebi spent the afternoon alternately piled on Abi's hospital bed or squished into an armchair, laughing, playing DS, teasing each other and basically doing all the stuff they do when Abi's not in hospital. I couldn't help but wonder about kids and their ability to cut through the unimportant stuff (IV tubes, hovering nurses, beeping machines) and get to the heart of the matter.
Mates are mates. Places, times and situations will change.
But mates are always mates.
