A lot of my time in January was taken up by supporting my mother-in-law Lois, Tim’s mum. It became very clear that she could not continue living independently in sheltered housing. So plans very made, quite quickly, to move into a scheme called housing-with-care where she would be fully supported and have care available around the clock – should she need it. And at 92 years-of-age, she has settled in very well and is enjoying her new flat!
Tim, the boys and I flew to Sweden for a quick visit to celebrate my father’s 75th Birthday. It was a lovely family occasion with lots of delicious food, catching up on news and wintery walks. The picture above is the local lake in my village, all frozen over, but where our children have grown up – swimming in the summer and here Eddie is using it as inspiration for a photography project.
