SashaQ - happysad - happy towel day!

Yikes, what a couple of situations... smiley - hug

It is scary about people on the sides of the roads - I was once at lights when I saw a man running up to cars randomly, luckily not armed, just being silly, but it was very intimidating, and I was glad of central locking, so I just avoided looking at him and carefully went past as soon as the lights changed...

That is just terrible about what Liam went through - no words to say anything about how people could do that... Very glad he's mending...

Look after yourself, too smiley - hug

Thank you all. smiley - hugsmiley - kisssmiley - hug

Laura & Liam are both doing well I'm pleased to report. I don't know if Laura worries about her son as much as I do, she tends to bottle things up, and doesn't like to worry me.

Liam has broken multiple bones over the years, he seems to be plastered up every year for some mishap.smiley - injuredbut he always mends and I'm grateful he has a thick skull like his grandmasmiley - brave

TC, I put shopping lists in the kitchen for us to add to (me & the carers) as and when Mum runs out of stuff. It's there to be picked up, unless she just forgot or wanted me to text items required so she could just access it while she's in the supermarket.smiley - shrug

The blessed lunch carer gave me a lift home today as there was nothing for her to do and it was raining and I'd left this morning with no coat as the weather forecast said it was going to be fine all daysmiley - cross

I'm now going to put my feet up and enjoy smiley - borgAndy Murray's smiley - racket1matchsmiley - tennisball

Sorry that happened to Liam, I hope they checked him out for a possible concussion. I hope you enjoy your matches! Take care of yourself, sweetie. You are so good about caring for everyone else remember Benjamin's advise to carers to take care of themselves as well!

1- I hope he can give the smiley - bluelight a good description of all
2- sadly, it doesn't look like "anyone" will come forward as witnesses smiley - sadface
3- If they get who's done it - and I hate writing this - any punishment = slap on hand, that's naughty

Thanks very much smiley - hugsmiley - smoochsmiley - cuddlesmiley - kiss

Laura popped round last night with a huge punnet of freshly picked smiley - strawberry for me and we had a good long girlie chat. She's starting a new job this week and may be going on a training course next week - in which case she'll need me to mind her smiley - cat and lend me her car againsmiley - magic

I don't know when I'll next see Liam as he's at his Dad's home, and yes, he had a full smiley - doctormedical check-up in A&E smiley - ok

The tennis is very welcome indeed as a distraction from RL. Andy Murray continues to progress and last night Novak Djokovic (current Wimbledon champion) had a real scare going two sets down to Kevin Anderson. It was 2-2 when play was suspended due to bad light so they're going to have a one-set shoot-out today.

It's been a while... Mum continues to live on although I can tell by her eyes that she's had enough. On Saturday she failed to remember how old she was and couldn't recall her date of birth - having guessed it incorrectly she asked me for confirmation. When I left with my sister for a lift home, she asked me to give her love to my little doggy (I have a cat which she has met and even had as a house guest whom we discuss regularly) smiley - sadface

She will be 96 on 1st October. My sister wants us to have a fundraiser - asking people to drop in between 5-6pm for birthday cake and a cup of tea and leave a donation for the hospice rather than buy a birthday gift. I'm still wondering whether it's a good idea.

Sounds a good idea to me, something positive as she is unlikely to take much note of presents and that can upset some people. Unless you can join together and get something which she needs and would really help.

It is sad but 96 is an amazing age, I just wish everyone could stay as healthy and fit as the Queen and Duke. Don't let anyone say it is because they are rich and spoilt because that has no bearing whatever on the condition of the brain!

Take care,

We (my sister, her daughter and me) ended up taking Mum out for in her favourite fish & chips restaurant, she had baked salmon and banoffee cheesecake with smiley - tea but got a complementary brandy as it was her birthdaysmiley - bubbly

She got lots of cards and flowers smiley - smiley

Since then she hasn't been very well, I ended up calling out her GP last Friday who diagnosed a chest infection so she's back on antibiotics.

After her usual bath, when she hadn't joined in with the "Splish-splash" song we always sing, and instead of saying she felt like a new woman afterwards, she told me she didn't know what she'd do without me.

I feel like things are changing and my sister feels it too, she was sent home from work on Monday due to a problem with the building, and instead of going home, came to spend the day with me & Mum at Mum's house instead, and gave me a lift home.

smiley - islandMy younger brother is away on holiday but my older brother is visiting this Saturday and will take me & Mum out for lunch with him and his wife. It's only a month since their last visit, I shouldn't be surprised to hear from him (and it was a long phone call, for him) but I was. He also told me how much they appreciate all I am doing for Mum. smiley - brave
