Oh what a day

After a bad nights sleep it turns out that I have paseed my cough/cold onto Brian so he is very unsteady on his feet. It also puts me in a quandary do I just give him paracetamol or start the antibiotics. The 94 year old lady that I look after sounds like a steam train with a chesty cough/cold. So I can see this going back and forth like a tennis ball.

And to top the lot the 2 carer's that came in tonight were as much use as a chocolate teapot. One girl just stood there holding the handle of the rotastand I had to explain again that it is better for him if you support him hands on rather then the self supporting stand. So I showed her how (again). They faffed about so much that even Brian swore at them not surprised by that because I was getting wound up by what they was doing. Now for my glass of wine and bed.

  • Or three! I'm going to bed now with a decafe coffee with rather a lot of Bailey's in it.

    I hope the cold doesn't go to Brian's chest and hope yours soon clears as well.

  • Hi Jane, I'm sat here, totally exhausted! Just spent an hour and half getting S up, breakfasted, showered and out of the house. He has gone off to the local hospice for the day. Now I am wondering "What do I do?" This is the third time he has gone, the last two just before Christmas, were fine, had busy days, but now I just feel like going to sleep! Up changing sheets in the night, as well!!! I feel I should be going out to see what the real world is up to, but I never could understand the "sales"!!!! Why would you want to buy something, hundreds of people have pulled around, to save a couple of quid!

    I am, for once, going to take my own advice and go back to bed. Who cares about the house, the shops, I can always go shopping later!

    Happy New Year!

    Lots of love

  • Brian starts at the hospice on the 27th of January for one day a week. Have been trying to think about what I'm going to do on my day off but I think I like the idea of haveing a day in bed Janexx

  • Hi Jane, hope you make it! I didn't!!! After been on this site, wrote a long reply to someone and lost it! Then S's son came around to look at our bathroom(needs doing very urgently!). By that time, I had time for a quick shower, down to the supermarket, then rush to get S. So much for MY break! Still S is enjoying it, that's the main thing and I had a couple of hours of not worrying about him. I will have to plan next week more carefully. Least it will be a full day. Fed up with all this part time stuff and everywhere being shut, be glad to get back to "normal!" Can't believe I just said that and meant it!!!

    Lots of love
