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

Dazed and confused

It's been a day of confusion today with a lot of repeated questions and a fascinating take on world politics.

She's going out for a meal tomorrow night so most of this afternoon was taken up with looking for something to wear.  Three bulging double wardrobes later and still we couldn't settle on anything. Nevermind, we've got all day tomorrow to resolve this. I do hope the neighbours weren't looking when she whipped all her clothes off in front of the patio windows in order to try on a dress. I couldn't swear to it but I think I may have let a very tiny scream escape when I turned around and saw her in the buff.

Lamb shanks for tea tonight. 6 hours in the bottom oven with red wine, garlic, onion, tomatoes etc. Absolutely ruddy delicious. Obviously Ma didn't eat very much of it *sigh* but the leftovers will make something splendid tomorrow for a one-person supper.
