Today feels like a fail. I did some things but I don't feel I did as much as I could. I cleared up after what looked like eleventy ten cats but I suspect is actually only three but marking disputed territory. That was fun. The smart meter should be fitted on 2 February. I've done a little washing a few bits of cleaning, a little sorting here, a little decluttering there but nothing I can really point at and say - I did that!
I also managed to help out a friend. Someone elderly and vulnerable should only be discharged from hospital with a care plan in place. I don't know exactly what is needed in England and Wales and what the criteria are, but if someone is vulnerable then there should be a care plan sorted before discharge. I don't want to give details about today, but years ago uncle was sent home to a house where he didn't have anyone living with him and he was very unwell and confused (and we only found out when he got home). There was no instant hot water except a kettle and no heating except a coal fire. He was back in hospital shortly afterwards. Someone who is vulnerable should have a meeting with a social worker to make sure that they can look after themselves and if they need help. Once you're discharged from hospital then you miss your chance. If you don't ask then you don't get assessed. I'm putting this in for anyone who may find themselves with an elderly relative being discharged at daft o'clock to an empty home. I suspect it happens more than it should.
On the bright side, I've found an awesome set of videos on YouTube (where I was hiding from the writing course) including this, the theme from Skyrim. The performer, Peter Hollens, is an amazing performer and I feel that discovering him means the day wasn't wasted.
