Which has peeved me a bit. Id just like to know what others here think of this. I paid £100 into mums personal account. This was out of her finances, and should have covered at least a months worth of hairdressing and chiropody..(the charges for these extras are very steep on top of the £800 weekly fee but tyhats not my complaint here) Ive now discovered all this money has gone because the activities co ordinator decided to take mum shopping. Now, Im sure mum asked to go shopping but had she asked to go to the zoo they wouldnt have taken her so why agree to this request? The problem is the clothes which have been bought are absolutly useless! they range in size from a 12 thru to an 18 and I recognise the labels as being from a shop aimed more at teenagers...and I dont know how anyone could have been so stupid! Mum isnt happy with her purchases and tried to give them to me. I spoke briefly to the manager but her response was that the AC was "trying to promote independence" My partner just thinks it s funny and says im over reacting but £100 is a lot of money to just waste, and I still have to sort out some new clothes for mum !
