Tuesday

Hello my lovelies :)

Well it's been a long while since I posted hasn't it?

Things are just so hectic  trying to get in to a routine caring for Mum. We have had quite a lot of issues with her care and dealing with different department for basic stuff . Why is nothing to do with any sort of social services straight forward?  I cannot tell you the amount of time I have spent on the phone to different departments trying to get something sorted which to me seems perfectly straight forward. I won't go in to details and some of the things are not pleasant but by gawd I cannot imagine what some people have to go through if they don't have anyone fighting their corner like mum has with us. It' shocking and has REALLY opened my eyes !

Anyway what with that and still trying to fit in everything else that I was doing before into my life it has left me NO time for cardmaking :( The little time I have had I have sat here and shuffled bits of paper round and gotten nowhere fast!! :( A lot of the time after the basic care my mum just needs company/chat as she is sooo bored and with her not being able to see well she is VERY limited in what she can do. So I have started taking a bit of crochet with me whilst I sit with her and chat. Here is what I've made the last few days...some little hats for the kiddies for winter :)




I do hope you are all keeping well and thanks ever so much for all your continued messages about my mum . Take care all and keep safe and warm in this awful weather we are having at the mo :(

Oh Kerry I so agree with you. I have battled with SS for quite a while and like you, have spent hours on the phone and filling in forms. Finally they have listened and lo and behold have agreed with me that Mum is no longer safe at home. Mum had also been telling them this but in their wisdom, finances were what mattered. Thankfully, this week saw them agree to her permanent residency in a lovely care home and us being able to deal with her personal stuff. Difficult to do but in her best interests. Just wish I lived nearer to her than over 30 miles away. Keep on fighting for what your Mum needs.

Sorry to hear about all your trouble Kerry, I agree with you about social services although I haven't yet had to deal with them about an elderly person just a young adult. Love the hats especially the owl one my grandaughter would love it is it from a pattern please. Take lots of inspiration from your blog and am nearly finished a Terry Kimbrough afghan after seeing yours, take care Anne
