    In the early days my mum would often wake in the middle of the night fretting about one thing or another, mostly it was if the bacon had been cooked, if the dog and cats had been fed and if I was warm enough and then the same things night after night. As time has past she still gets up through the early part of the night, but not worrying about things anymore. She can get unreasonably jealous about one or two of my friends, they visit have coffee with us and mum is polite and chatty with them, but as soon as they leave, Her comments are quite cutting, strangely to me these comments are the only things where her speech pattern makes sense!
