    Just have Jude. Will be waiting on postman now.
    Poor postman, I think he hates coming here. I always open the door in a manic panic with pieces of toast stuck to my hair shouting back to mum,
    "I'll be back in a minute, don't move!"
    It never varies. He thinks I'm mental. I feel like shouting,
    "I'm a carer!!" as explanation.
    But only another carer would understand that particular brand of waspish wit.

    Dear Magic,

    You have to yell 'I'M A CARER' in extremely loud block caps. Never ever, use the word 'just' either.....!

    Wait for the book.... No more Ms Nice Person after that!

    Dear Ted,

    After 10 months of Talking Point I have to agree. Perhaps TP also stands for Talking Pigs? Nothing wrong with pigs at all. I like them.

    Thanks guys, you cheered up my monday no end already
    have also put in an order for this book, not sure if Dad will see the funny side, but I'll give it a go.

    Hope no one gets offended by all the animals I bring to this forum, but they are the only other creatures who understand me and my warped sense of humour, wtihout them I would have cracked up long time ago

    cheers

    Going to the Tea Room to see if anyone seen Daisy, funny how no one offers to make tea in there.....

    Dear Sheila

    It's either a Pow or a Cig depending on which is the male and female.

    Dear Jude

    I've ordered a copy too, hope you are on commission.

    Cheers Barraf

    Have received Pig today. Chapter on burnout describles exactly what I'm feeling at present, no pleasure in anything, not sleeping and having huge wracking sobs. Think it's time I got some extra help. Have at least organised extra sitter session per week as mum is not fit for daycare etc. That's 3 days of 4 hour sits. It's something I suppose.

    Finding it rather embarrassing now when people keep asking me if my family couldn't help out, then give me chapter and verse about how supportive theirs would be if they were in my position. I used to think that too. Have to have a bit of a snigger as I watch their smug little faces. Let's hope they never find out for themselves just how supportive the old family network can be, eh folks?

    Hi Magic, so pleased to hear you' ve got some help laid on. Keep reading the book, it's not all doom and gloom, had me in fits of laughter at times too. What you said about people saying they know their situation would be different etc. They just don't know till you've walked the walk and talked the talk like us do they!! Love She. XX
