Well, for the past three weeks dad hasn’t cried on the phone or when we get together. He seems to have turned a corner. Every Wednesday we do the shopping on line at Tesco and Wiltshire Farm Foods. Indeed the latter has proved really useful as dad enjoys the variety of meals and they are all easily cooked in the microwave.
We seem to be getting into a little routine now: I arrive at 10.30 and we chat and have a cuppa. Then we order the shopping online. Then chat a little more and have our lunch (I bring rolls around). Then we review what is happening next week and book the care needed and then play one game of chess.
These last few weeks my visits have been getting back to being a pleasure rather than a chore. Well done dad for working through the grief.
