Blimey, it dont half bring it home, just how dependent I am on others!
Daughter texted her dad this morning and asked if he could go baby and dog sit, later this month, so she and fella can go away for 3 nights. They live around 80 miles from us.
Now as you know, I am taken on short hols with my carers and OH stays at home with our pooch.
So we set about working out a timetable…thinking it may not be possible to get me 24 hr care cover.
It wasnt looking like it, as carers have other lives when they`re not with me…of course!
But with a jiggle here and a poke there (nowt rude ta!) I think we`ve cracked it.
Aside from putting me and dog into a wife and dog short break hotel…we`d have had to say, sorry, no can do.
And there was me and OH, feeling all redundant as far as our kids and grandkids are concerned.
I can be left alone for an hour or so…but with zilch mobility, temperamental bowels and a pesky spc at times…it makes you realise, eh?
ps some may ask why cant they come to us? That
s cos it is during school term time.
