flowers and help with Mum and Hubby.... 2017-7-21

..  Hi ...  

 Mum is getting stronger which is wonderful ....she can walk with a walker inside the house and doesn't go back to bed now, she sleeps in her armchair on and off through the day . I don't need to do any 'hands on' nursing for her.. just be there and help in the bathroom ..
If Mum is having a 'funny head ' day (as she calls it).. her confusion and irritability kicks in and that is stressful for me ..
I have a lot of help and support from an aged care organisation and my daughter Mary which is great...

Mary is moving in to stay for a while next week while Hubby has a heart operation ....
 Lots of coming and goings happening.....

Thank you all for your concern for Mum .. I appreciate it very much  ... xxxxxxx

I was very happy with this photo I took earlier this week ....  it's Oxalis..  my favourite weed  ...

I  was excited to see on of my Dutch Hyacinths is starting to bloom  yesterday .....  

..The Choko Vine is off and climbing again....'s one I played around with ......

....  and a lovely little fluffy weed .....

... have a great day ...
 Love ... Barb  xxxxx
