It's seems like a long time since we had the respite not just a few weeks. Our weekend was lovely but OH not happy, very depressed. Looking at the photos that I took he looks awfully sad.
The first week MiL was back she had a UTI and was peeing for England Wet clothes, wet bed you name it, it was wet Back to normal now though and she's doing fine.
OH not so good still in bed as I'm writing this. He suffers from Bipolar and has just had his tablets changed

Yesterday started out like any other and everything was fine. I was looking forward to going down to my youngest son's as it was there little boy's first birthday. My daughter went with me as oh had to stay here and look after his parents.
On the way I had to call in and see my Mam as she had a card and present for my grandson.
To cut a long story short I have a lot of horrible history with my Mam... I've suspected over the last year with odd things that have been said

MiL was collected at nine thirty this morning to go to the day centre three weeks after it was first arranged Thankfully all sorted and a lovely guy with a taxi that can take her in the wheelchair. Now just hoping after all this that she actually likes it
FiL sitting looking like a little lost soul without her being here - so sad
A lady from the day centre has just rang to ask us what level of assistance she needs they should have

The woman who had made all the arrangements for MiL to go to a day centre and made the stupid mistake of the wrong transport last week was supposed to get back in touch with me about the new arrangements but as usual she hasn't bothered. She must have so much to do ingnoring everyone it's a good job I'm in a good mood today. The sun is shining, my washing is drying outside and I'm now going to go and do some gardening and forget about her ingnoring me - again and again

At last they've got it sorted MiL can go to the day centre once a week and be collected and brought back by a taxi that can take her in the wheelchair. Now just waiting for confirmation from the person that set it all up in the first place so hopefully all will be sorted for next Wednesday. They have also confirmed that her personal budget will cover the cost and only a small payment of a few pounds needs to be paid every week by us. Now that it's all sorted I just hope she doesn't change
