I went and collected Mum from the hospital this afternoon. She's not as steady on her feet as she could be but, after all, she's got Parkinson's disease and is 84 years old so, as I keep telling her, she's doing marvellously well for her age! And she won't be trying any Laurel and Hardy type dancing any time soon - hopefully!
Anyway, she's home and settled in front of the television with her slippers on and watching whatever takes her fancy. She has the phone right by her hand and she's promised to phone me if she needs anything. I'm only 3 minutes away in the car so it's not a problem for me to go and help her out if/when she needs me.
I'm so glad that she's home - and so is she! - and I've told her to stay out of the garage. She said she would but I know what she's like so we'll see how long that lasts!
Thank you all again for all your lovely comments. They've certainly kept me going this week. I hope to get back to reading blogs and commenting myself soon but there's a lot of houseworky things that haven't been done around here this week that I really get done. Soon. Maybe. ;o)
