    I have been told more in new home than old home and hospital put together and she only been in 9 days.

    Called in T today and was followed to my car by a homeless man, he startled me as he was directly behind and he asked me for money as I was loading my shopping! I apologized and offered him a twix instead, he took the chocolate and asked if I could spare a drink as well, eyeing up son's ciders, luckily I had a new bottle of water in my boot so gave him that.

    I've never been followed like that before and I'm sure some people would feel very uncomfortable........

    Our Mr T has a carpark under the store so its always gloomey even in daytime, not the sort of place you would go to at night.

    I was going to ask this, if the home encourages relatives to come in with their dogs?
    In the home where my Dad was they actively encouraged everyone to bring dogs in, all the faces lite up when dogs arrived ready to give everyone a love
    They also had a donkey visiting once, he did a walk around with his owner and got blank stares but on the 2nd walk around everyone was much jollier as they petted the donkey. I filmed it on my ipad, my Dad looking his old self

    Look who just been and spent 10 mins with her Nana after not seeing her for 3 months
