The care home will allow just one visitor and only by appointment. So Clive went to see MiL.
She's on a moving mattress and being given morphine as required. Clive found it most distressing. When my parents were dying, he was my rock so I'm sad that I cannot be there with him.
I spent a couple of hours gardening at work. It needed a good soak and cut back. I emptied the bins and cleaned the toilets.
On my way home l met one of my members and his wife. By coincidence, I had called them in the morning so see how things were. She's not coping very well and is now on anti depressants. I asked if I would notice a difference in him. Now I've seen him and he has declined measurably.
Clive, Hetty and I had an early evening walk which ended at the Black Horse. A beautiful evening and plenty of social distancing space in the canal side garden.
Mark's 2 sons (previous marriage) arrived from Wales. They haven't seen their dad since February. Mark was so excited and I felt a bit emotional watching their reunion.
3 G&Ts and I am not a drinker!
