Since post, Happy to sad and back again, it’s been confirmed by those assessing her, that the only safest option for my mum, is a nursing home.
Mum will stay at nursing home where she currently is. It was explained that in the future, another assessment would be made to see if there were any changes, so I would be informed of that.
I have an appointment set for seeing the solicitor later, who will help me with the Court of Protection.
So onto this, ‘It’s a weekend’ post.
This ‘It’s the weekend’ post is a late one, given the circumstances of the post.
Yesterday, I went back to my mum’s bungalow. I set out very early in a morning from my flat and walked it there. 3.8 miles googling it, for those that are interested in my walking. A long walk yes, but not as long as the one I mentioned I did last year. That was 4.5 miles, if you remember.
While sorting what I was bringing back to bring back, I ran the water taps and shower, with it being some months not being used.
Mum has quite a few things packed, so not much packing to do, than final items she’d been using until finally packing one day.
A friend was coming to pick me up, so I could put them in his car, to take them back to mine. We did two trips, which were mainly a few boxes and bags, plus small dining table and two chairs.
I still have a bit more to bring, but thats after giving it a quick clean. So I left items to do that. I just need to arrange a removal for a few items I plan to bring to mine, fridge freezer and ottoman. Then hopefully, I can get a charity to collect other furniture.
Also, as you know, my mum hasn’t been at her bungalow for months. Someone had the cheek to use her bins. But they used a couple of bins inappropriately and mum received a letter saying this was second complaint in 6 months it happened with recyle bin. As you can imagine, I was pissed off. I immediately emailed regarding it, but since that email I sent on 3rd July, I decided to do my own investigating. I sorted the recyle bin and put what shouldn’t be in there in general waste bin. Then I checked the garden waste bin. It was full with everything but garden waste. Mum doesn’t use this bin. So I looked through it. I didn’t need to go far to find proof of old mail in there. Addressed to next door! I brought that bin inside the bungalow and I sent an email to mum’s Social Worker, asking if by chance she was able to contact a particular chap directly I emailed, to get things moving, with not hearing. I explained the problem to her and that if she could get him directly, to tell him since last email I sent, I have sorted bin concerned, but garden waste bin has been filled, not related to the garden and that there is evidence in there who done it and so I have brought the bin inside mum’s bungalow. Explaining how mum’s other neighbour came round to tell me about that and what happened and that apparently he died and so someone else clearing up property, was enquiring about my mum’s bins. I expect him to take a look at the evidence himself and I hope he is going to to take action. Because after all, the letter explained you could be fined, if it continues. So he better do them, that came onto my mum’s property, to use her bins! So Social Worker will come across this email when she is back on Tuesday.
In the afternoon I watched a dvd, after getting changed in fresh clothes.
I then had an early night. But to say I was very tired, after two hours being in bed, but not falling asleep, I got up for a bit. Had a bowl of cornflakes and watched Daz. (Hamster.)
Today, I got up, when I woke up. After a shower and breakfast, I plan to bake something sweet. These are what I plan to bake: https://lucysfriendlyfoods.com/2020/07/06/chocolate-cornflake-cookies-aka-afghan-cookies/
For the rest of my day, it won’t be much than do the washing (mine and mum’s) and sew a button on my work trousers, to make sure it’s secure. I am feeling slightly tired today.
