Botham's father is deceased, he was speaking after a length of time and I thought it wrong to encourage people to not visit loved ones with dementia. I don't see it as not being able to cope, I think it's a case of not wanting to even try. Yes it can be very distressing but it doesn't kill you, and it's unfair to other family members that one opts out and leaves the responsibility to others. Never ceased to amaze me at the number of friends / family that would attend a funeral but the carer was lonely as people didn't visit when the person with dementia was living at home. Rant over    

Verdun I'm sure you'll make the right decision for your Mum, you know her best. If the sad times comes that she doesn't know who you actually are she will still feel that the person with her is someone who she feels safe and reassured by. Hugs.

Runny glad it just wasn't me. I thought after 10 yrs I'd moved on but I felt so angry. Was even worse because it followed the news about lack of care in NH /EMI units that had already got me going.  

p.s on a lighter note the refuse collectors have missed Mum's re-cycling bin again, so another phone call made, and one due tomoz' since the coporate complaint I put in that would be addressed in 20 days ( in writing)  has now got to 31 days  Not life threating but so blinking annoying.

DD not a huge cake fan but banana sounds

BM I missed the fact that you are moving would be great to see pics of your new garden

Thrown my clothes out and will wear my parka all winter  inside and out

Claire, not "met you " before so don't know what has happened in your family but send best wishes and I'm sure you'll find support on this thread.

Fishy glad to hear that MrsF is home, even if in discomfort, no place like home x

Lyn imagine you are still "shellshocked" about diagnosis love to you.

I watched a prog' last night where Ian Botham aired his views about his father and his last days in a home having dementia, an "empty shell" my ar*e !! I was so angry and upset about his cowards way out about not visiting I didn't sleep well and cried in the night.  Don't wish dementia on anyone but let's hope if he develops it his kids decide to visit him and make sure he is cared for and offer him some love and kind words even if he no longer recognises them.

Glad your OH is on his way home Lizzie

Archie, bit of tough luck they are having, hope your manflu is better

Hope all goes well Verdun.

Filthy day here so I'm going to get rid of clothes that I've been hoarding, feel like throwing the lot away.

Love lemion drizzle cake Dove .. Think the damp has go tot you

Soz bit slow on uptake about bikes

Old farts want lights that aren't millions of tidgy things on miles of white string and do alter functions but are big enough to see on an 8' tree...and do subtle not mind blowing twinkles and flashes & match a bronze themed tree with green wiring not white or black  ...not asking for much really

MrsGarden have you remembered to take a cutting from your Brugmansia ? I have mine in a jam jar on kitchen windowsill.
