Can I just have a moment? I feel like a dozen things have landed on my head. I still haven't heard from the Council, so I will be chasing again tomorrow. The food bank was busy and there seemed to be a lot going on. I got the presents for the teachers in on time and took bear to his maths tutor.
Bear was awesome at the maths tutor, who I think is having a ball. We all agree that bear shouldn't get ahead of his year so he does all sorts of maths problems and number games that involve things like cards and stuff. He had a brief attempt at calligraphy today.
We are also getting a piano. This was unexpected. We have to pay for a man with a van and someone to tune it, otherwise it is ours. The piano teacher suggested that as someone was getting rid of a piano, we would be good recipients. I am grateful, but slightly stunned.
I had a call from the care home. Father has had Do Not Resuscitate put on his notes. He is refusing medicine and not eating enough and his weight is falling. I have seen the attempts the staff have made to coax him. Father is being charming, cheerful, alert and utterly non-co-operative.
While bear will be doing nothing tomorrow I can do some chasing and fingers crossed work out what is happening with the piano.
