    Good morning all, mild but cloudy here.

    Yet another day of cabling here. We always become hideously busy this time of year, which means I rarely have time to do what I need to do for Christmas

    Hornet girl glad to hear mil is on the road to recovery. Could she go into respite for a few weeks? I think the quicker you can get her out of the hospital the better.
    With regards to her home I'm trying to remember what my dad had. He had a frame around the toilet, a comode for downstairs. Grab rails at the back door and in the bathroom and a Zimmer frame which he hated and would be off without it at any given oppurtunity
    I think the main thing for you to decide is whether you think she will be capable of living on her own, I don't envy you its a horrible decision to make especially with her just becoming a widow too.
    If there's anything you want to know pm me and I'll ask my mum.
    're the respite I'm sure you get something like 6 weeks paid for but if they own their own home you would have to pay the top up. I think there's also a difference as to whether she needs residential care or nursing care.
    And it doesn't come cheap either I'm sure my mum was paying 750 a week

Its more the short term while she recovers fully that were initially concerned about, plus what she will get up to during the day when there is nobody else there. Her view will be that she is home from hospital, therefore she must be ok

    Good morning.

    A deal noticed on HUKD - 50

    A free Google Home device (allegedly worth 129) with a year!!!8217;s subscription to Telegraph Premium online for 50.
    https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/telegraph-premium-50-per-year-plus-free-google-home-worth-129-2847914

    So obviously it is not free, but it seems a reasonable deal?

    I haven!!!8217;t looked at the details and am not sure what Google Home usefully does or if I need one .

    Morning all. I have a day off today and was planning on maxing my android entries but can you tell me if you do a few in succession at the self scan tills is it best to open the envelopes in between each or leave them all until afterwards ? I know it isn't keen if there is less than a minute between each (which seems like a long time to kill if there is a queue!)

I remember the crossroads lady going to sit with him one day so my mum could go out for a couple of hours, she went to get my mum's washing in and whilst she was in the garden my dad got up, he could hardly walk because of the Parkinson's, went across two rooms to the drinks cabinet and poured himself a large glayva

    Couldn't find the xmas yogurt at all, then DS said to me this morning that he saw them last week, so will look again.

    How long are you giving yourself to get to target? I have adjusted mine to take into account the weight of the implants.

    Id appreciate it if anyone can offer any advice on MILs situation please. The hospital are suggesting she will be ready to go home in a couple of days time. She is 82 years old, has just had major surgery and was widowed less than a month ago. Should anything be happening before she is released - should her home be assessed or anything like that first?
    Sorry if this is a daft or nave question but we have no experience of anything like this and have no clue what to expect.

    When I was in this situation a couple of years ago, I was given a pamphlet of items (chairs, bed wc etc) to put measurements into and answer questions, bath or wet room, microwave etc. Who can help at home, distance that you live from the person etc. (Sounds tough but if you put yourself down, don't expect any further help). I stood my ground as was working/looking after DGC at the time and could only spend a couple of hours a day with Dad, which wouldn't have been enough for his safety. He was then sent to a local home for 6 weeks rehabilitation/ease back into living alone. Good luck.

    Pippo, here is my list:

    https://www.nectar.com/santas-secret-competition -- it is only a competition to win points.

    http://www.nightgardenlive.com/advent-calendar/ -- it has mostly been something to colour in, but yesterday I got free magnets. They send you a code so P&P is not charged either.

    Does anyone know if the Baxters soup will still glitch with the lentil and bacon trigger please? Having managed to print 3 x 50p coupons, I'd quite like to get some more!

    Apologies to ask, but as I don't quite understand what this is doing, I'm unable to work it out for myself.

    Sometimes there are re-ablement support packages after hospital stays, where carers go in up to 4 times daily for up to 6 weeks to ensure people are able to cope at home.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.
