I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

That is a really lovely room. I'm so pleased you've been able to find a way for them to be together. You're a good daughter. :)

Apparently - Dad asked Irene what tools she thought he might need!

Viv says:

Shit!
They don't feel that they're safe upstairs - Dad has tried to get into bed with a 90+ woman - not his wife! and he's used someone else's en suite loo - so they have moved them downstairs - no view! Smaller room I think and not newly decorated so going tomorrow instead of Thurs to weigh it all up - is there an end to the tunnel? Here was me - new hirdo bought myself flowers .... phone call mid Tesco shop and feel as though I'm back at square one!

Viv, keep up the good work- and also keeping buying yourself flowers! It's very important to take care of yourself too. Beautiful photographs!

paintist says:

I hope when you get there ,that your mind is put at ease and that your parents are fine...good luck :-)

beth says:

yes she does need to keep looking after herself it's true.

we'll be over there soon to see what it's like downstairs but we're not too happy because the place was chosen because of the lovely big room and the view. poor g+g.

Viv says:

when I wrote 'shit' maybe it was with some strange forsight - it became the central factor in today's visit - poor dad!

We did however send a good hour or so at the pub - Dad watched Brazil and we played cards with Mum. This was the positive side of the day!

Also Mum is moving very well for a 93 year old who broke her hip 8 weeks ago!

Gael says:

I'm relieved you are still able to focus on the good bits, helping people to grow old with dignity is going to be a bigger and bigger challenge for all of us
