you may recall in the past few months that I have anticipated a time when the girls would not be here and it would just be me and Herb. We rub along just fine after 25 years and enjoy our days out and days in but I knew it would be much quieter and as I did a fair bit with youngest, I would occasionally find myself at a loss.
well ha ha ha ha ha(slightly hysterical laughing) because we are not alone!!
As youngest went on her travels and eldest prepared to go back to uni...... elderly parent became ill and can no longer live independently....so this is my new role, well it has been for the past 3 weeks and let me tell you I was not born for it!
Luckily I had a fortnight off work so that has not been an issue especially as I am up a lot during the night.
We have not ever had a good relationship but what can I do.....carers starting tomorrow, herb is being the absolutely best, over and above the call etc and so we soldier on.
I think I am mainly Nurse Jackie but alcohol is my prop not drugs.....which would you be?
