A Serious Moment

Okay, I may have been a little side-tracked these past few days. I very nearly blogged on Thursday, I really did. But what I wanted to say came out wrong, too heavy and too deep. That's not the purpose of this blog, so I left it.

However, I feel I have to mention it briefly (I know, I am so contradictory!). On Wednesday 9pm I watched a BBC drama-documentary about Beverly Allit, a nurse who murdered babies she was caring for in the children's ward she worked on. This notorious case happened in the '90s and although I had known about it, what I hadn't realised was: 1. Allit was born down the road from where I am currently living. 2. The hospital in question is also local and is where my own two children have received treatment. It put a whole new perspective on the case.

It was all very disturbing, superbly acted and directed, and then I discovered another interesting fact: The drama script was written by none other than Kate Harrison!

Whoooah! Scary stuff!

Makes you wonder what on earth is going on in the minds of people like that, doesn't it?
