I didn't visit father today because I was waiting in for a call from the council. They didn't call. The phone extension of the lady I need to speak to will not accept calls, just messages. I feel a little stressed.
Jackie - I'm happy to pay if we have to pay, but it's all odd. We were told that father should be having all his care paid for as a medical necessity. I am not sure of the right words, but I understood that if father has ongoing medical issues severe enough, his pension is not used as it is covered by the NHS. Father is genuinely that ill. However we are suddenly looking at 45 weeks at over £200 per week to pay, without any warning. It's hard for me to know the right questions to ask, or the right words to use. Bear breaks up for the holidays on Tuesday. I am looking at the third summer in a row where bear is sat listening to me make difficult phone calls.
However when I saw the picture in your link I just laughed and laughed. The handkerchiefs that are currently stacked on the table were extremely inexpensive to start with, have been well used and well washed, they are not really... Actually, as I typed, I could do dye experiments to see if they would looked pretty or I could, well, I am sure I could think of something. Thank you.
Today has been a bit limp. There are three more bin bags to go to the tip, and I've generated more ironing by catching up with some washing, so it could be worse. Next week I'll be able to cut the lavender to dry because after poor DH has done the multiple tip runs I'll have the room to hang it.
