    Thank you to everyone for your support. Keeping busy has helped over the last couple of days. So much to do! Dad's funeral is arranged and we are taking him home to Edinburgh for it. He lived here with me for the last few years but always wanted to go home so that's what is happening. So much kindness from everyone when making arrangements and contacting official bodies. All except HMRC who of course reminded me that tax will be due on income between April and May - thank you for this reminder!!!

    On my own today so can cry when I like. Going to care home to begin to sort out dad's belongings. They're not pushing me to do it but I need to do it and no point putting it off.

    To everyone out there battling through dementia good luck. It's the worst disease there ever could be and a cure is such a long way off.

    Hello, you are managing to find a balance here, I think, between grief and the practical.
    I think you are being so kind taking Dad home for his final rest. I hope you have people there to support you. Take care. Love Maureen.x.
