Chatting to our neighbour who works as a care assistant in dementia ward as she was asking after Pauline and she suggested I needed to get away and asked about plans so I explained that I would love to join two friends from my caravanning days at a meet in York to which she replied saying she would call in at least twice a day to see to meds and just check in. I didn’t want to impose as she has. Kiddies but she insists so I have booked the site and everything is crossed.

While I was out with my son yesterday morning Paulines frustration with the total lack of contact by her sons got the better of her and she phoned all three but only one, her eldest, picked up. She was telling me this within minutes of me coming though the door and said that he was due in 10 minutes and then phoned him again to make sure. Just to be on the safe side and to allow them private time I went out again before he arrived. I was away an hour and he was still sitting there so was well. After he left she wasnt sure what they talked about (or didn't want me to know) but she was happy even though he made no mention of when he might call in again. It is such a shame that they rarely phone and rarely still for them to call in as it raises her up no end.

As you said what a lovely neighbour you have. It is always good to have something to look forward to. I wish you an enjoyable break away.

All is still relatively calm now that’s he heating is on and turned UP! Better to pay the bill than suffer the consequences. Given the great improvement in her mobility arising from what I believe is have time with just the two of us to get her walking and using the stairs and building her all round confidence and self esteem, her bed will be moved back upstairs tomorrow morning. Not only that but the redundant commode will be going back to NHS as it hasn’t been usd in anger for a week now and being upstairs takes her nearer to bathroom during the night. All in all I am feeling nervously positive about the near future while waiting for the next inevitable downturn.
