New friends .. amazing how quickly one can connect with people around the world with similar interests who are already supporting me - I just love this internet & the ability to share my experiences with people who care, but also who've been through similar challenges & can understand. I'm looking forward to hearing positive stories from everyone .. & sharing ideas -
My uncle, 87, was out when I visited - but I let myself in & sorted out his fridge & stores - so that it was 'fresh' & left the shopping I'd bought. He's always so appreciative and he gets 'interesting' foods .. that he probably wouldn't buy himself, as he's pretty slow at getting around & has macular degeneration .. so it's good to visit as I can keep an eye on the house, and him!
They returned just in time for coffee & so the five of us had coffee & a chat - he loves company, but more importantly I'm back & his security blanket is there in case of need. I dropped in to see my Ma on my way home & she was cheerful and pleased I'd seen Derek.
