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

An update and a few photos

I phoned the home on Saturday morning and they told me Ma didn't go to bed until 9pm! This is unheard of but she was probebly too busy tooting at what everyone else was doing. She did get up four times in the night but slept well enough in between. Just spoken to them again and she is fine, eating ok etc. The only problem they seem to have is having to chase after her with her zimmer frame because she keeps forgetting to use it!

I have to be honest and say that I feel more able to relax knowing that she's ok. Honestly, it's worse than taking your child to nursery for their first day! I thought all that was behind me but it appears not.


Here's a few photos from the holiday so far:



TV dinner in front of Downton :)


  1. Enjoy every minute,you deserve it:-)xx

  2. Sounds like you're having a great time, make the most of it! I'm in Windermere on Sunday and looking forward to it x

  3. The scenery is fantastic and if that's your standard of TV dinner I'm coming to visit. ;)

  4. LOL @ Chris Ann! Sorry the pics aren't great, I've only got the camera on my phone. I made a steak and kidney pudding tonight, it was very yum (very naughty, but very yum!)
