Sorry about the dearth of posts; things have been complicated within the family.
My brother is deteriorating, slowly but steadily.
Mum is finding it increasingly harder to cope with this in specific and life in general. She is pretty poorly herself at the moment.
A member of the extended family is embarking on a course of action related to my brother which is morally questionable as well as legally dodgy, so I am having to get my brother urgent and appropriate legal protection. Obviously I cannot divulge more than this here........
I seem to be either spending half my life listening to Mum crying, or crying myself. Listening to Mum is definitely worse :-(
DH is well, the children are well, praise God, and I am physically okay apart from stress.
DD3 started Comprehensive school last Thursday and loves it. She is managing the solo bus trips to school just fine, and seems so very grown up now ! DD4 started back this morning and was raring to go at the crack of dawn :-)
I've spent the morning on the phone, washing, making beds, tidying up, filling in paperwork for Mum and I still have a book review to post which must be done today.
I had better get on with writing it fom my notes :-)
