BYE TO NAN

BYE TO NAN

Nan has left us this summer. She was becoming very frail, it was hard for her to tickle my ears but she still loved to see me as much as possible, she always smiled when I came in the room.  We are all going to miss her very much, but she was 93 and not enjoying her life anymore. I suppose there comes a time when we are all just ready to move on.

Bye Nan we will all miss you very much xxx






SUMMER 2013

SUMMER OF 2013
Its been a long and lovely summer. The UK has had lots of sunshine, and plenty of dry days. This is lovely apart from when you have a long black fur coat which you can't hang up in the cupboard.




I get a good brushing every day to get rid of all the lose hair, and a dip in the sea as often as possible, this was a lovely day with Connor while Mum was visiting Nan in the home.  Nan has become too poorly for Connor to visit so we went down on the beach which is only a couple of minutes walk from the care home.




Connor loves the beach and the sea and is nearly as good a swimmer as I am. It was lovely and cool in there.

A chat with the donkeys behind our house on one of our walks, they are very friendly and love their ears tickled.




We have had lots of visitors this year, many of the family have been and stayed a while then gone again, its nice having them around.

2013 Easter Weekend March







Once again its been a long time since anything has been written here.


We have had a really busy few months, Dad has been poorly with a hacking cough. Probably all this cold wet weather.  And Nan has been poorly as well.

She had a fall on the night of Halloween, and the paramedics came out to her.
She was fine but very shaken, and since then she has lost her confidence and doesn't want to be alone especially at night.

We tried to help her get back to normal and the local council tried to help, they put all sorts of equipment into her house to make her safe.

Anyway none of it helped, and in November she had a fall and a stroke and despite being 93, and having a really bad stroke she is doing pretty much ok.

On Christmas Eve she moved into Coble House Care Home in Cullercoats.
She has a lovely room with her own bathroom, and a view down the road to the sea.

She shares a lovely lounge with other residents and has made some good friends.

She is still confused, and has many health problems but she loves to see me.





Me and Nan at the home 




Connor came with us last time, Nan is so pleased to see him


This is her room, its very nice.

Well we go there as often as possible, and at lease once a week. She loves to see me and I get lots of tickles, but I also get fusses of most of the other residents as well, they are getting to know me now and I get biscuits of the staff.  Its a lovely home, just like visiting her in her own house, but with more people about.



She had her 93rd birthday there last week, mind she isn't the oldest resident one lady is 102.



Nan seems happy to have lots of company, she is warm, well fed and well cared for.

We are going there this afternoon.
