Good morning, everyone. I'm at Dad's, sitting up in bed with the curtains open, the sun shining in, coffee to hand and laptop open in front of me. It's lovely.
Yesterday turned out to be a good day, especially in the evening. I got the house tidied and ready for the cleaners, packed and then set out for Dad's. There was quite a bit of rain on the way and at times it was slow moving. I was glad to be in a line of vehicles so I didn't have to worry about not being able to see too far ahead.
I was also glad to see Dad looking so much better. He is looking much less strained and more relaxed and seems to be very much on top of things. For example, I said I'd change his sheets and use the new sheets I bought during the week but he did it himself, no problems. I'll wash the sheets for him and, as it seems to be a lovely morning, maybe will get them out on the line.
Dinner at the Millstream was great. Neighbours A and Z (honestly!) came too and we chatted endlessly. I did go OTT but enjoyed every mouthful and don't feel bad about it. Sometimes there are more important things than SW programmes, aren't there, and last night was one of those times.
Today should be a quiet and gentle day. I'd like to pop to Tesco or Sainsburys this morning for a few things I need for meals today and tomorrow and there's the washing and drying to do. I'll ask Dad if there's anything he'd like me to do but now he has so much more time and freedom, he is getting things done himself and I'm here for the company, not to provide respite. I can feel the worry lifting.
Well, I'd better stop rambling now. Have a great day and stay warm - it's expected to feel quite chilly today. xx
