Set scene - 8.00pm settled down to watch some TV Lionel not very settled and quite talkative, so I went to make a drink. Came back with tea and chocolate biscuits. (Lionel diabetic, so this was a special treat). I drank my tea, he was still drooling over the biscuits......Set the ironing board up next to him. so he was not alone. Conversation then goes............. "Con, where is my drink" It is there on the coffee table. Where is your drink.? My cup is the empty one. Are you sure? Yes. Which one is mine? Yours is the full cup in front of you. I am trying still to do the ironing. 9.30. We start getting ready for bed Come and do a wee for me in the bottle? Have I done a wee? No, not yet. Do I want to go? I think you should. Have I been yet. When I was young my mother used to say when I had been naughty "Lord give me strength" Nowdays I truly pray for someone to give me the strength to carry this situation with dignity for Lionel, and humour for me.
