Out Little Diamond always plays it cool when she arrives for her carer sit. She is not of the ‘wham bam thank you mam school’: telling Maureen what she is going to do to her as soon as she walks in the door.
I watched her again yesterday as she eased Maureen off the sofa to join her in household duties. If I’d been able to video her in action it would have had an excellent training video for her colleagues to watch.
Yesterday Maureen was eased into:
- A short car journey into Grimsby.
- Changing unsuitable clothing in Tesco.
- Drying up the pots and pans.
- Changing our bedding.
- Preparing vegetables for lunch.
- Volunteering for dusting duties.
On my return from some time out, OLD and Maureen were singing along to YouTube. She’s back again today and I know Maureen is in for another busy few hours.
I’m hoping she can help resolve an early morning underwear crisis: once again nothing fits. As OLD is here for four hours today we might even be able to fit in a trip to Marks and Sparks so Maureen can choose some new undies. Her current method of getting the necessary support up top; with a belt, or trousers almost pulled up to her neck, must be so uncomfortable. This is a no-go area for me when Maureen doesn’t know who I am – particularly if she thinks I’m the guy who troubled her so much in her past!
