  2. paying for care

    We've suddenly found ourselves in the position of needing to find a care home for mum; I thought this wouldn't happen for a while but after she and dad moved house 3 weeks ago, she's become a different person - I'd say she's gone through 2 years of decline in 3 weeks. She can't eat properly, is...

PJ disappeared upstairs about 9pm and when I went to investigate he had rolled himself, fully clothed, shoes and all, under the duvet in the spare room and was sound asleep.

  20. Odd, very odd.

    Wm was very peculiar today. He looked as if he was "somewhere else" mentally. Actually, it was more a "where am I, what am I doing here, who am I?" kind of look - vague, bewildered - but not really alarmed. But, oh boy, was he difficult!! He started by getting up at the crack of sparrowfart. ...
