Spent the day with my aging father-in-law. We visited his wife in the care home (she has Alzheimers) and two different old ladies asked me if I was a nurse. One was insistent that I call the police and, after my husband had guided her to a chair in the lounge, she wouldn’t let go of my hand. She told me “I have 3 children you know and they’ve been very good to me but I suddenly got a lot worse…” before trailing off into confusion and more requests for the police. So sad and a poignant reminder that I shouldn’t spend so much time dwelling on the negative.
Tonight it is rainy and chilly. The heating has gone back on and I’m painting a cow.
This is the cow
This is me 🙂
