Hello folks, I'm home - Ma is fine, confused and talking absolute bunkum about new cats and babies, and seeing her mother the other day and all sorts of things, but she's happy and has totally forgotten about scalding herself. She has a red burn mark but the staff are keeping an eye on it. Pa is just sitting there and listening to it all - I was able to have a chat with him without Ma and reassured him that we know she's confused but that we'll look after them both and that he's got nothing to worry about.
I've heard from my son - he's done his business in Cornwall and is on his way back to Suffolk - he asked council workers where to park in Lostwithiel and they showed him a car park by the river and said that high tide had passed so he'd be ok parking there - when he returned to his car 3 hours later he had to take his shoes and socks off, roll his trouser legs up and paddle to his car - he said the water was just below the sills - another couple of inches and it would have flooded the car when he opened the door.
I'm completely cream crackered and am sitting on the sofa with a cuppa
