      Wish I'd seen this earlier...you are not bad nor selfish...I can remember when mum was old and frankly not really 'there' dreading sometimes going..my sisters made it horrible and I often knocked back 3 or 4 large drinks to get up courage....all that to visit a woman i loved dearly all my life....I have nothing but admiration for people who handle that sad part of life so well....

      Evening everyone. Great conversations here today. Have not heard about that show Bridget. Don’t mind the concerts Mary but I have always been the chauffeur so it’s not that different. Think the whole reveal, baby shower business is madness. BF sounds lovely JC, how are the newly weds? Don’t feel guilty Satz, you need to indulge in self care too. Glad to have the working week over. Joined Pilates a few weeks ago so I have that on tonight.

      I used to carry a bottle of 'lemonade'............heavily spiked with vodka when I used to visit my mother. We never got on even (that's putting it mildly) when she had dementia.

      Ahh the newlyweds, no idea apart from busy .........Think the saying 'a daughter's a daughter all her life a son's a son 'til he takes a wife'.........comes to mind. The S&H will be here for his Christmas dinner on his own. Mainly because we don't make mashed potatoes from a packet.........or in fact any food that doesn't come out of a packet over Christmas.

      I'm leaning towards one of these private cremations..........someone does the job for a quarter of the price, gives the bereaved the ashes and then those left behind can have the party/wake/piss up later.

      I still don't know the full story of why Jenny and the ex split up, prolly never will. But it got so ugly that she needed police escort her to the house they shared to get her stuff in case of violence to gather her stuff. Not just him, his mother as well.
      She's just happier, calmer and was always made for teaching. Its not all hunky dory. His ex is a nightmare about the kids and likes nothing better than changing arrangements at the last minute but as I say he's being very calm and pragmatic about it.

      Nipped up the high street and finally made appointments for the pair of us to see the dentist. What with dislocated hips, my kidney problems its been 18 months. There goes the downstairs toilet money for another few years.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Well I didn't go up today and guess what - she was fine.
      I had her out to dinner on Sunday & I swear she's going to live to 100. It's just the short term memory still but it really hasn't gotten any worse.
      So unless the lung issue does for her I can't see why she won't live for a good few years.
      This time last year we were told she wouldn't survive the winter

      One thing I've noticed as people get older and develop dementia how actually self-centered they become. i do not mean this in a bad way.
      I mean like a child - the world revolves around them and their needs - they live in the moment.
      - I think it's there in us all but we have to curb it and at least pretend to care about things.
      Once the 'marbles' are going we can demand attention and get away with it without being labelled selfish.

      Morning all
      Enjoy Molls - I will need to google that place.
      @JackieClaire sounds like Jenny is well shot of that fella if he's abusive.
      I always say there are two sides to every story but no matter what her part in it - his reaction says a lot about him. Steer clear I'd say.

      Evening All,
      Good for you Satzy not going to the nursing home after work. I couldn't stand it either. As you say, nothing happened! Jeez you've got to have a break...
      I like the sound of this Icelandic Thor type. Tall and sensible. Very good. I had an abusive one too. Had to get the coppers involved also. It was humiliating.
      You will love Ephesus Molly. Amazing place.

      About the most productive thing I did all day was to buy a new body pillow. Then couldn't throw old faithful out. SO tonight I shall sleep with them both. Is that what a three way is? I'll ask Mr G. He'll know.

      Watching Mindhunter S2 here on Netflix. The acting is sensational, especially the ones acting the serial killers. Cameron Britton as Edmund Kemper is astonishing.

      I'll be really interested to hear how that pilates goes Rustop, especially how your back goes in reponse to it.

      Last day of work tomorrow and then hols for a week and a half. I'm gagging for it.


      Off I go to fall asleep to Mindhunter. lol. So soothing.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?
