Birthday News for today, 30 May: Stephen Bowden and David the Omrud.
Thanks for the greetings! I'm afraid I am so unbelievably busy at the
moment that I don't get much time for UMRAtting.
We each have a very elderly parent with dementia. My mother is in a
care home 100 miles away (but only a mile from my sister's house);
she’s no longer aware of where she is, and only recognises me and my
sister. We’re getting her house ready to be sold. Meanwhile Wife’s
dad is living alone, 80 miles away in a different direction. He
clearly has dementia and probably can’t stay in his home for much
longer. Together they take up a lot of our time.
But just to make life properly difficult, we are in the throes of
moving house. We're just waiting for the paperwork to go through -
we're moving from South Warrington to a flat in Altrincham.
Unfortunately, because of differing requirements of our buyers and the
seller of the flat, we will have five or six weeks of homelessness.
Under normal circumstances we'd just have gone to our home in France
for the summer, but we can't leave my FiL for long.
It’s just as well that we are retired.
[(-: to last lime] Sorry to hear your troubles. Best wishes.
