I have decided to stay in Coventry a while longer. I want to see if I can bring about some changes in my mum’s Care Home and my brother’s Nursing Home.
I will pop in to see my mum again this morning. She was rather sleepy when I called in to see her yesterday. When she woke she asked me to give her a kiss and told me she loved me. She also asked me where Maureen was and then she amazed me by asking where Esme was – my youngest daughter.
When I call in this morning we are going dancing. I know if I call up Glen Miller, Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole on my Lap Top mum’s feet will be tapping. I hope she is able to close her eyes and remember dancing the slow foxtrot with dad: they would have got a Ten from Len!
After lunch, I’m taking the music theme to my brother. He gave me lots of beautiful smiles yesterday as he sat alone in the dining room. I didn’t have my dancing partner with me so we couldn’t show him our attempts to remind him he was one of the best jivers in Coventry. Once I get the right music on this morning I wouldn’t be at all surprised if one of the carers partners him: Len would hold up a Ten if my brother gets out of his chair.
The news from Konar this morning is exceptional. Maureen sang along last night when Alfie Boa was on the TV: they get a Ten from Me. I’ve told them they can’t keep her as I really miss her lovely singing in the morning.
