Good news

Well after social services stopped the centre for George, we sent an email to the head of social care, and they have phoned up and apologised, and George is going back to the centre on the 4th January, feeling really bad for him, he missed all the Christmas celebrations, with his friends at the centre. Also Jan from the PSP society was very helpful, and I can't thank her enough, also my son in law for the email he wrote for us.

George has not been to good this week seems to be coughing a lot, and it feels like he has given up a bit, keeps saying he is going to die soon, feeling so helpless sometimes, it is like when your child goes to school, and you feel that a part of you is missing, it feels like having another child, and you are watching out for them all the time, just want things to be OK for them, and for no one, to do anything to hurt them, you feel so protective of them, I can shout and get upset, but I would not let anyone else get upset with them.

He keeps calling me and saying don't abandon me, and wants only me to do things for him, it is very hard, when you are tired.

Been baking for Christmas, and baking, everyone keeps eating the mince pies and cakes, so have to bake them again, oh well they enjoyed them.

Love to you all big hugs to everyone, near and far, I am wishing our partners have a wonderful day, and that you all get to sleep, and enjoy your day.

Merry Christmas oh oh oh xxxxx🎉🎉🎉🍾🍾🍾🍸🍸🍸🌲🌲🌲

  • I know what you mean about having another child. It's the feeling of responsibility isn't it.

    This year I'm making things as easy as possible by buying mince pies, sausage rolls etc. I decided I wasn't going to spend hours of interruptions whilst trying to cook something that will be gone in minutes. There will be 10 of us here Christmas day so I've cheated somewhere else as well. I've bought aluminium trays to cook all the roast veg and meat on and to use as serving dishes. The plates can all go in the dishwasher and the cooking and serving dishes in the bin. Ok, more expensive than normal but that's my Christmas present to myself...not silver jewellery, silver baking trays and dishes. I won't wrap them or put them under the tree though.

  • I'm glad it got sorted, Yvonne, and so sorry for what George missed. You are a real soldier, all that and baking, too! I will be making just one large mince pie, from green tomato "mincemeat" my mother canned . With a sharp cheddar, it's heaven!

  • NannaB well done, a very good ides, I don't usually make mince pies, my daughters idea, I hope you all have a good day, cheers🍾🍸

  • Well done for all the baking, it is nice to be able to do something `normal` isn`t it ? I am sorry that poor George has missed the Christmas celebrations at his day centre but he still has you to make his Christmas and with all that baking I`m sure you have made up for any loss !!

    xx

  • I'm so glad you got the centre visits back for George. It makes such a difference to be able to get out and meet other people and just be in a different environment. And its essential for you to have the time for a break.

    I've just finished the last of the wrapping and I'm just going in the kitchen to make some cheese straws to take with us tomorrow when we go for drinks with daughter-in-law's parents. Our main celebrations will not be until Monday when we have the family coming to us so I have a few more days to prepare for that.
