HEY ..... I'M BACK ..........

Hi, I've been very absent haven't I ? My life has taken a bit of a turn as, after my husbands chest infection, he has deteriorated. I have to look after him and am a full time carer. I haven't been out since February so I'm having a bit of a time of it to put it mildly. I like to think that I am a very capable person and can cope with most things but, living with someone with dementia is very difficult. I am not going to go on about it and, we all have things to cope with but I just thought I would tell you what has been going on. I've been dealing with this for ten years now so it did start to take its toll a bit. I have been waiting for Social Services to sort out a Day Centre so that I can get out but I've been waiting six months for that and they are now telling me there are staff shortages ! They keep promising it will be soon but nothing comes of it. I wish they would just say there's a long waiting list so that I know where I stand. 
Anyway, enough of the doom and gloom, have you listened to the latest and last ever Beatles offering ? It has taken me back to my teenage years when my friends and I would record any new Beatles song on a reel to reel tape recorder and just keep rewinding it to learn all the lyrics !!! I think I know pretty much every lyric that they wrote ! 
I have listened to so much music and watched so many films and series over the last few months as I am stuck indoors. At least I am lucky that, in these days of modern technology, there is so much to entertain me but, as human beings, we are social animals and need our contact with our friends so I am hoping that Social Services will get their finger out and give me some help soon !!!!!
Here's hoping you all haven't deserted me and will leave me a comment for my mental health đŸ€ŁđŸ€ŁđŸ€Ł
I am still reading your blogs and will get back to commenting on a more regular basis soon.

Lots of love,
