I arrived back here in Turkey on the 5th of March. After a good nights sleep I headed down to see how nan was doing.
I walked into her flat and she was lying in a hospital bed that they'd brought in for her. She looked so helpless and old.
"Look who's come back" said Suzanna, the Turkmenistan carer. "Who's this?"
There was silence as nan clearly had no idea who I was. My heart sank.
"Nan, it's me Billy." She kissed me. "Swear nan, can you swear?"
"Fuck your mouth" she muttered. I was overjoyed.
She's still with us.
