    I thought maybe he had slept heavily and was just taking a bit longer to wake up than usual.

    He got washed, dressed, cleaned his teeth etc, so in that respect, everything was fine - but it just seemed at a much
  2. How do I Appeal a driving licence being revoked?

    Not sure how to start, its my first time on any kind of blog.

    My dad is 76yrs old, and a widower for nearly 5 years living on his own. I live a ten minute walk away. We had noticed changes in personality and memory before my mom passed, but had no idea it could be dementia - always put it down to retiring and medication.

    Hamster cage/dome (upstairs part) was wide open - sawdust everywhere.... ...

    For the last few weeks, almost on a daily basis, he has been asking how the 'extra bedroom tax' is going to affect us.
