A little overwhelmed

Hi. Today I’ve felt a little overwhelmed with all the stuff to do for my parents. After a day with my Dad yesterday and bringing home several bags of my Mum’s clothes to sort through I woke up early thinking of the piles and piles of accumulated stuff in my parents’ house and I hadContinue reading “A little overwhelmed”

Trees of Crowthorne

Hello. Feeling a bit exhausted. As usual recently… with all that is happening with my parents. The good news is that my Mum is now out of her Covid isolation and she never had any Covid symptoms. She is able to socialise again with her new care home friends so she is much happier. IContinue reading “Trees of Crowthorne”

Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵

Hi. Sometimes hot and sunny weather is very pleasant, but sometimes like today for me, it just gets a bit too much. The grass is parched and yellow everywhere you look. We really need rain. We can’t remember when it last rained. David can’t remember when he last wore trousers instead of shorts. I can’tContinue reading “Very hot in Windsor today 🥵🥵🥵”

Tuesday’s Waffle

Hi. I nearly called this “Wednesday’s Waffle” but it appears to be only Tuesday.. so there we go, silly me! I was sitting in my Mum’s care home lounge the other day where the main topic of conversation amongst the residents was what day of the week it was. Someone asked “What day is itContinue reading “Tuesday’s Waffle”

Happy Sunday

Hello. Hope you’re all well. It’s not been a bad day for us today. This morning we collected my Dad from the care home and took him back home after his 2 weeks’ respite care. Not sure how he is going to get on home alone but time will tell. This was my Friday nightContinue reading “Happy Sunday”

The colour of hydrangeas

So the crisis must have passed a little with my family situation, as I’m now noticing the colour of hydrangeas. This is one of our blue hydrangeas 🤔?!? David says it will turn blue after it is pink. We shall see… apparently it depends on the alkalinity of the soil. I never knew that before.Continue reading “The colour of hydrangeas”

More drama

Just bought more of these tinned sweets for my Dad amongst other things. This week has been so hard. I cannot really describe it. My Dad arrived in the care home for 2 weeks’ respite on Monday. My Mum slipped in the care home and fractured her hip (neck of femur) on Wednesday. She isContinue reading “More drama”

And then there were two…

Both my parents are now in the same care home, temporarily at least. My Dad just couldn’t manage at home on his own and has gone for 2 weeks’ respite care. Before you say “oh how nice for them to be together again”, I’ll step in and say you probably don’t know my parents. TheContinue reading “And then there were two…”

Ongoing challenges

Hi. Nice bee isn’t it? I snapped this in Windsor Great Park last weekend. Life continues to be challenging for me. My Mum is relatively happy in her new care home residence. She’s very busy participating in lots of different activities. She even went on a trip to Brighton last week. One of her mainContinue reading “Ongoing challenges”

Parents, parents, parents…

The picture above is of some fake flowers I saw in Windsor (or maybe it was Eton??) earlier this week. Quite pretty I thought. My life is all about my parents now. Today I visited my Mum in the care home this morning and my Dad in his own home this afternoon. I took myContinue reading “Parents, parents, parents…”
