………. A clean duvet!

day 1 of my mum not being here

As you know I have had an operation and have put my care in the hands of the gods! Or in this case my husband Fred.

It is 2 weeks and 1 day since my operation and my mum left yesterday. With the parting words of ‘I will be back if you can’t manage’. Words that sent a chill through the heart of Fred! He has just about survived extended time with his mother in law! And I mean just!

I have run this operation and recuperation time like a military operation. There have been colour coded schedules and lists on the fridge for weeks. Everyone who is involved is helping (they did volunteer bless them) has been a located a colour. With the warning don’t mess with the schedule under threat of a court marshall! My mum was a located red obviously and was the only one who can fiddle with it. Mainly as even though I am 46 I am scared by her!
