Dear Toony Oony,
I'm sorry to hear about your mum and like you I am glad that my parents never saw the lockdown and that I don't have to worry about visiting dad in the care home. When dad passed away I had lots of dreams of him, mum and nana and then I dreamt that mum and I were caring for him...
A few weeks seems a long time but hopefully you'll a little better tomorrow. If it seems worse it might be an idea to phone the physio again. On the bright side at least
your husband was entertained.
Dear @ Duggies-girl,
When I first started mowing the lawn in spring I noticed that the birds were waiting for me to finish before swooping done and gathering nesting material and insects. I am now fully satisfied having done gardening and hoovering. Sometimes it is good to have a break from...

brothers about dad although I hope to resolv the issues with them but I can talk to other relatives in Malaysia on messenger and I have a lot of friends. Like you say it's the small things...
Thankyou, you two and @Grahamstown I know exactly what you mean. You both have have a treasure trove of stuff and @Duggies-girl I can imagine your dad's adventures. What a life! We did the best for our loved ones and the memories are a comfort. I have a lot of hoovering to do after the...
I'm sorry to hear about your dad. Take things slowly and don't rush. If anything brings back certain memories keep it. I am also having to think about what I need to keep for probate. Like @Susan11 you are wonderful and my thoughts also go out to your mums.
I'll be thinking of you this week. My parents met in the ballroom as well and their relationship progressed from their. You may have some of my other threads and know that I may have to move at some point so that's why I will be putting some things aside for me to keep.
Not sure whether anyone's read this update but it is good type on here when the grief comes back like it did when I went through these documents today. It's difficult dealing with this when you live on
