Thanks @Sarasa, mum has always had a thing for the Pellegrino lemonade and it seems she still does. Ice lollies are sometimes a good idea when someone isn't eating anymore -freshens the mouth and gives some taste sensation as well, I quite fancied the lemonade ones myself.Sensible to come home when you knew you needed to. I'm also glad that you managed to talk to a real life person about your mum's situation.
Thinking of you over the next days and weeks.
I'm quite keen on San Peligrino Lemonata too. Quite fancy one now.
Its important to leave if unable to concentrate as mistakes in my line of work can be very costly so thanks for your support. On the work train today so will see if I can go the duration...
