I am officially a grumpy old woman. Spending this morning cleaning,tidying and cooking for my in laws, who are lovely people in rude health, who holiday several times a year, have numerous friends and are busy with hobbies, coffee clubs and beach walks. My mum on the other hand is feeling abandoned and lonely after five weeks in a care home. I am sobbing into my vegetable peelings and not sure if I can put on the jolly act today. My husband has ensured that the Sunday lunch was planned for a weekend when both my sons are home. The last time my mum came to Sunday lunch everybody went out. Feeling totally glum. I hope nobody asks me how mum is getting on. The trouble is I'll be offended if they don't. Could have done without this today.
