Contrary to popular belief, I am still alive and mobile however, for me to write a post has become a privilege of sorts; meaning to have respite from what is expected of me in terms of dealing with the the available time allotted to me beyond the compulsory chores of the day has become minimal unless something expected of me is sacrificed for a personal few moments of personal pleasure.
My wife Rosemary the mother of our five sons, three of whom we rarely see due to distance, is suffering from dementia. and incapable of satisfactorily completing most tasks given to her. Rosemary's has a limited memory time frame of approx ten seconds and twice in the past six months I have lost her in the huge shopping centre after having told her to wait outside of the toilets for me and I believe it is on four occasions that she has gone walkabout from the house without me knowing, which involved the the local wooden tops and kindly neighbours on a search and recovery performance..
On Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am to 3pm , Rosemary goes out for the day and is cared for by a local org who are paid a reasonable stipend to care for her. this in turn allows me to do important chores around the house plus read the newspaper and get my head back to normal, other than the afore mentioned saga's my daily chores include getting breakfast, showering Rosemary doing lunch and dinner and other in between meals also bed making cleaning, gardening and the shopping. Our son and sole heir to our vast fortunes Christopher, deals with the Internet mail and household bills plus Rosemary's medication and the family laundry also the welfare of our pets.
The other thing which could prove a worry for Chris is the payment for a cleaner to do a F/Ntly clean of the whole house, this in turn would ease my back pain plus give me a slight increase in longevity but reduce his legacy long term .
Oh just in case our extended family are unaware, Chris Rosemary are a involved in a family trust, and if you have not been informed of any benefit in the future to date you can be assured you will not be.
Overseas relatives... The offer made for a trip to Australia with one leg of air fare free expired three weeks ago, and any plaintive cries of despair having missed this fiscal opportunity may possibly be given further advantage providing they meet the finely worded criteria or in plain language those who did not fully afford us comfort on our last escapade to the mother country, mainly due to the escapades of prodigal son upsetting more than one applecart, he in question asked me to send you a particular message which I refused to send due to possible international repercussions and my pommy passport being revoked. However, I shall not let a wet fart situation stuff up my former or present good relations whether acceptable or not. that is all for now .Love you all.
