Simon arrived this morning and we persuaded Ma to come out for a drive to Blackpool.
She was very tired after her trip to Devon midweek so was a bit iffy about going anywhere but seemed to emjoy herself even if she couldn't remember Simon's name and referred to him as 'this young man' or 'sir'!
Insisting on going in her purple slippers was a blessing in disguise and gave me the opportunity to talk her into getting replacement white shoes in M&S, indentical to her old ones but they look so much better.
She's going to try a chicken korma for the first time from the take-away tonight. Could be interesting...
