  1. A step back in time :)

    Today has been an exhausting but lovely day.

  4. Settling down again

    I am glad to say that my husband is showing signs of being able to settle back down at the Age UK day centre.

    I had been getting worried that I would need to find something else as he lost so much confidence when he was kept in a mental health secure unit for two months recently.
