Who's going to give me my lemon drink tomorrow? Busy brain ...

Yesterday when I was leaving .. my Ma wanted asked .. "who's going to be here to give me my drink! ?" Today she's 'doolally' .. with a difference, as perhaps by now you'd expect! Half with it & half not .. most half not .. but still we laugh.

She had (I hope it's gone! .. I left her to sleep it away) a bee in her bonnet ... & when she gets one of these it's very difficult to shake it off .. so this time she wanted to get out of bed, but mind the puddles, put my boot, one leg's strong! (I think the torrential rain we had last night must have gone into her subconscious), & mind the poor woman .. I'm lying on her - I laugh & Mum gets very cross with me & says you mustn't laugh - "it's serious" .. oh dear .. the more I laugh - Mum laughs too & then laughingly says I mustn't laugh - it's very difficult to keep a straight face .. well I don't. Then immediately I've made some comment - she says "don't be facetious" .. absolutely correctly in context: addicted to or marked by pleasantry or joking!

She's surrounded by people .. she was very cross my brothers hadn't been in to give her her lemon drink this morning!! .. & she's very concerned about 2 small children whose faces had been injured by 2 nasty animals .. and they needed to be caught ... Gosh it can get busy up there .. and she's not to be rationalised with .. .. I tried by saying the children were with God like her parents, or in a different time frame .. but she's having none of it ... so I came away somewhat exhausted by her brain going at a 100 miles an hour ... & hope some sleep (perhaps!) .. may bring her back to earth again by the time I get up this afternoon ...

Hilary, That can be difficult for you when her brain is not working as it should. As difficult as it, it can be a time to hold dear in the time ahead. Stay the good daughter that you are and love her dearly. Have a good day.

Hi Dan & Deanna .. many thanks - it doesn't worry me fortunately .. in some ways it's reassuring .. but it is exhausting! We will have a good day .. and to you too ..
Thank you Hilary
