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

You couldn't make it up

Me: Right Ma ready? Let's go and get in the car.

Ma: Oh I don't think I want to go out there.

Me: Come on... it's day centre today, you love it there.

[reluctantly steps out onto the path]

[dog runs past me into the front garden]

Me: Oh flipping heck Lily, hurry up.

Ma:  Yes ok [starts walking faster]

Me: No! Not you Ma, the dog! Be careful, you'll fall.

Ma; Oh ok.

Me: [to dog] Come on inside!

Ma: [turns round] Yes ok.

Me: No Ma, the dog needs to come inside. Come on Lily, hurry up...

Ma: Yes ok. [starts walking quickly towards the house]

Repeat and fade.
