Closed Ears


It’s been 5 weeks since Mum moved in and apart from being in work We have not spent a night apart. Tomorrow I am going on a camping trip with family and my Grandkids, we do this trip every year about 20 of us, kids and adults all having fun at the side of a river just making Funtime memories.
This year though I have Mum to think of and she will be with my Brother my Husband and my Sons who adore her but I know they will be plagued with ‘where is a Bev’ all weekend.
I will miss her so much but will be nice to go to sleep with both ears closed!

A new journey


Stocked up on biscuits!
So after a 9 week stay in a Rehab care home after a fall Mum came home Thursday to live with myself and David. My Brother went to collect Mum at tea time from the care home (I shopped and stocked up on biscuits)
Mum was very confused to say the least when she got to our house she at first refused to get out of the car however promises of tea and biscuits helped!

We have spent the last 4 days settling Mum in and trying to establish a routine, this has so far gone very well I am aware it’s early days though and I keep waiting for a set back which has not happened, mum seems to understand I will be leaving her 3 nights a week to go to work and she will stay with David.

She has restarted the day centre, again this caused her to be agitated as it’s been so long since she went, she was ok Though once there and came back full of what she had been doing. The family are just relieved that Grandma is home and even if it’s only for a short while at least she gets a little more time living with her family.
She seems to have forgotten her own house she lived in with my Brother, while this is sad it does make it easier as she has not asked to go home.
And so here is the start of a new journey it will be hard and there will be challenging times and as I say it may not be for long but while we can it is worth trying.

She’s coming home!


After much deliberation and many family meetings and chats as a family we have come to the decision that Mum is coming home to live with Myself and David. This hasn’t been taken lightly it’s been a hard few weeks but we all agree the time is not right just yet for Mum to stay in a care setting!

It will be hard, I need to keep working as David does not work due to redundancy, but I am optimistic and just want to try….. It may not work we all know that but if I try at least I’ve tried eh!

And so after my holiday this week with my Daughter and Son in law and the granddaughters Mum will be moving in with us, it may work it may not I pray it does😀

Fortunately we have a big close family and a brilliant friend base, let’s all muck in and get her back where she belongs for now!

Mum was always a flirt! She loved to chat and as she says it got mistaken😀

Mum and Dad split when we were very young as time went on we learnt of this mysterious man she had a ‘bit of a do with’

now as kids we were told this man was ‘married’,,,,,,,,!!!!!!! We have no way now of knowing if this is true as we got told to mind our own business.

she always told us as kids he looked like Matt Monroe, oh how she loved Matt Monroe he was her love, she always told us the man she had a ‘do with’ was the spitting image of him.

Now she thinks she did have a fling with THE Matt Monroe and no one can tell her otherwise!

And so now is well know in her Nursing home as Matt Monroes Ex!
