He complains to me about this and says "I said to her, mother WHY do you keep using
Ive been talking about my dad in, Daily doings thoughts etc, ive decided I should have a separate topic for Dad and here it is, MY DAD

I did tv's in our bedrooms when I got up,

Well any help appreciated - Mum has been assessed by salts team - swallowing poor and often failing everything thickened to Blancmange consistency.
Is this the start of the end - how do I cope with this?????
Thank you xx
A short while ago I ordered and old pair of binoculars from a well known auction site I got them for about £4, they were so I could watch the birdies and their antics in the garden
They didnt arrive , am getting that sorted
what I have received recently and didnt order was a digital camera At first I thought it was sent by mistake instead of the binoculars but no, their was no receipt just a name on the packing paper that I did not recognise
Ive trawled through
