Heading for here.

Getting closer

Top of the world Ma!

if you are looking at these on a larger  screen, lap top or PC, you may just see a tiny church on a very pointed hill, in the above, we live near there.

Ice  cream first

Thank you everyone, what lovely people you all are.
After clearing up and seeing to everything, we decided to go for a walk on the Moors, there's an ice cream van we can see glinting from our window, so drove up there, had an ice cream with a flake, then walked up to the top of one of the small tors. Came back through Tavistock and bought fish and chips, the house seems very quite now.
Will be extremely quiet when OH goes to work on Monday. Completely isolated here, no neighbours for miles. I have lots of gardening to catch up on so will keep busy. Thank you all.
Will put a couple of pictures on later.

You are all correct in what you say, but Devon and Cornwall are a different breed I think.
The carers are just not available, when I was disparate with mum, I offered to pay any amount of money and was told if I offered 100.00 per hours, I wouldn't get anyone, they just are not here.
Macmillan only deal with cancer patients, but they never came near with mum.
All the care was temporary, never got a Care Package put in place.

This is the best of the two, the Marie Curie nurses will be regular. I don't think I will get a night sit though, but now he's stable and relaxed, I can get some sleep, I can probably handle him better if he's floppy.
We did get the bed two weeks ago and a commode.
I can handle it all just as long as he isn't stressed like he has been this past two days and nights, he's lovely now though, so I am going to try and get some sleep.
I really do appreciate all of you comments and good wishes.

Fishy wrote me the most beautiful poem, just perfect for the situation, I will ask him if I can put it on the forum.

My step son worked for Tesco for one year to earn extra money for his university degree, he liked it, they liked him and when he left they told him he'd be welcome back at any time, mind you, that is Cornwall, so probably nice staff there.

Edited to add... What's this with people having a pop at everything and everyone, I think I'll give this site a rest before I say something I'll really regret.
People getting ridiculed for their photos upside down, I don't know....

I cancelled the paid care because someone then decided he was ill enough to qualify for free care.
They are going to put him on stronger meds, putting a line in? Don't know what that is as mum didn't have it, just had call from the surgery....what chemist would you like to pick it up from.
You can guess what I told them!!!
The reason for the meds is because he's thrashing about, no, I can't get a baby sitter, and no, the Marie Curie nurse can't sit and wait while I go. She has other patients to see to.
If we deliver it could be a couple of days. ..I will tell him to hang on then shall I.. Don't think she likes me anymore

To weed or not to weed? That is the question

The site isn't iPad friendly, I find the only way to get the photo the right way up is to use the Photo Stream.

plant in photo number 2 is Sea Holly.

Terrible night, he was really ill, I had to call sos nurses at 3am, poor girls, only them alone on all the night, they couldn't get here till 6.30. Not their fault they were so upset. Now...that leads me on to the next bit.

I watched Ross Kemp on binge drinking, I know I shouldn't have, but I did, some poor boy, paraletic on his third bottle of white cider, abusive, so along comes the police car, better call an ambulance in case he's hurt, need back up police car, better call some support worker, there must have been 12 people called to that all because the poor darling needs to drink, he can now go into a centre where he can have constant care, all I want is one bloody nurse to give me a hand in the night.
This country needs a good shake up, I am writing to prime minister.

Rant over, apologies to anyone I may have offended.
