    Hi

    You may remember me from a while ago, at the end of my tether. Well things have changed, mum was put into temporary care. I think she got forgotten about for a while (which wasn't a problem as mum loved the place) as it was 5 months later she was moved into permanent care. She seems happy enough, when I visit, she is sometimes in the lounge, watching the biggest telly I have ever seen and socialising with other residents, stuffing her neck with tea and cake. It is good to see.

    Mum never complained or asked to come home, (she lived with me for a long time) which has been a blessing. I have to say that I have found her to be happy in her own skin and as far as I am concerned that is all that matters.

    Regards

    Bikingbint

    Hi

    The guilt monster has packed his bags and is living elsewhere, I did feel guilty for a while but the monster has left this building.

    Regards
