House names that suit the garden (or don't)

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 09:50

I used to live near a house called llamedos. I asked the owners if there was a Welsh connection as we were in the Midlands in England. No,  but then he told me this . His wife was the person who everyone turned to when they needed help,  parcels being delivered,  children looking after, taxiing to and fro, she never said no. 

When she had to go in hospital for a serious operation,  no one would lift a finger to help him .

Now read it backwards.  That is my motto now,  he said.

Hugs to Lyn who lost her beloved dad.  He is at peace now. You looked after your mum, then your dad,  now is the time to step back,  remember the good times, and most importantly, look after yourself. Hugs. Pauline x

Just looked through the survey, but didn't fill it in.  It seems more like an advert than a survey to me.  And I would definitely NOT put my email address in.

Many years ago,  my son,  getting ready for a school disco  said " I've put some gel on my hair mum "

" but we haven't got any hair gel"

"Yes we have. In the red jar. In the bathroom cabinet "

Anyone tried to get swarfiga out of a13 year old's hair? It's not easy.

I don't post often on this thread,  (too much of a reminder of losing my mum. ....on my birthday ) but I always read it and think of you all.  Hugs to all who need them. 

I know how hard it is looking after poorly parents and how much of a battle it is to get help.  My partner and I looked after my mum,  who had vascular dementia,  my brother and both sisters never came near until she was in her last hours.  And I have not heard from any of them since she passed away.
