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.

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…”

A new era for me and my parents

Hi everyone. I really don’t know where to start. My life has been turned upside down since the events of Tuesday onwards with my parents. My Dad is in hospital at St George’s again. A routine check up on Tuesday led to admission the next day for urgent vascular surgery… and then when that didn’tContinue reading “A new era for me and my parents”
