Not really Gertie, more a case of there being a small number of computery things I can do well.

Hi Denno

Are you planning to put some chicken wire or something around the 'sculpture' to give a climber something to clamber up?

Verdun, we had a similar 'scare' with Ma a while back, when she first started wearing incontinence pads - as she was wearing 'pads' but 'saw nothing regular' if you get my meaning, then that could only mean one thing   Fortunately the staff are wonderful and were able to put her mind at ease and that phase passed.   I hope you don't think I'm being heartless when I say I envy you your dear mother's swift passing ... Ma is/was such a private and proud person

You could make a log pile over the area where the asbestos is, to make sure you don't forget and dig it up by mistake.

Clari - she's got a crush on one of the male carers - she goes all pink when he talks to her and she keeps trying to hold his hand and make him sit next to her and says 'he's my best friend' then giggles.  ................. she used to be so prim and proper   but at least she's happy.

Hello folks - back from visiting Ma - she's well and happy, chatting about all the friends she has (the staff) and her relatives who live next door who want another baby

The autumn colours seem particularly vivid this year, the field maples in the hedgerows in particular - absolutely wonderful
