Nine hours I spent at work that day. Another two in the pub with colleagues after. It took me twenty minutes to walk home, and a further thirty seconds to find my key and unlock the front door.
But it took just ten seconds for my entire life to change. That’s how long I spent standing in the living room doorway.
As I stood there, frozen, staring down at the floor, I knew the life I had known was over. In those ten seconds, my whole life changed forever.
The doctors tell me my wife’s changed in even less than that.
