I went to see my Mum today - 12.45 lunch time -all the curtains were closed, the door locked. You can imagine what I was thinking. Anyway she was in bed - from what I could see -clothed. When I asked if she was ok she said she was bored. There was no one out and about and she thought she would be better off in bed! I suggested she look at the newspaper, watch tv or sit in the garden but he did not want to do that. She kept on about a long since gone very close relative who was supposed to be coming round (he died in 1965) and that she had spoken to him on the phone. She would not get up and wanted all the curtains left shut along with the doors. Is this normal? I left but needless to say she has been on my mind since.
