Our chauffeur will be here in an hour but I’m not sure we will make it to see my mum on her 96th birthday. Maureen is very upset and keeps asking me why her family never come to see her? She has been saying that ‘no one cares about me and no one believes me’. My words of comfort are falling on deaf ears and she is suggesting that I should go to see my mum by myself.
Maureen understands that my mum and brother are no longer well enough to visit us. If we make it to Coventry this morning I think it is likely that she will be reluctant to visit others as she says ‘why should I go to see them when they don’t come to see me!’ However, as I know she will enjoy the company of her family I will do my best to persuade her that as we are down that way we may as well call in and see some of those who are finding it difficult to get to Cleethorpes at the moment.
