My mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2010. This is a blog about coming to terms with her absent mind.

Living with Wincey

I've mentioned Ma's weather obsession before. I think that part of this is because it is something safe to talk about, but there's a definite theme which is sun = good and everything else = bad.

Today we have had frequent and heavy showers - roughly three an hour, each lasting for about 10 minutes. The conversation goes something like this:

'It's looking  very nasty over there'
'Terrible rain'
'Oh good, it's brightening up now'
'Lovely sunshine'

'It's looking very nasty over there...'


Tomorrow she goes to spend a week with Peter while I go and look after a post-operative Cornishman. Plus ca change...
