yep MC I totally empathise! it certainly gets to a stage where you become parent to your parents! I didn't have any issues with siblings luckily they were both excellent so I can imagine that would be very frustrating - I can only say that you have to do what you feel is right and you won't have any regrets.
great news on Murph Melds what a great old fella he is!
well done Daffers and sis - training makes you faster? who's have thunk it
good news on the car Dragon but mostly that you are safe and well xx
Westie - seems like its just one long holiday
my Mum slept though my visit yesterday which wasn't a bad thing as I took the Bigun who hasn't been for a while and her decline may have been more upsetting had she been awake. Took the Littlun a few weeks ago and he did get a bit upset. I may pop to see her again today - its her birthday tomorrow.
still plodding on but not a single race booked this year but I will soon. the garden is starting to take shape - hoorah!
Daffs - I am most impressed with your plastering skills
thank dog it's Friday, not even been a busy week but I have that Friday knackered feeling. we were supposed to be going away in the new motorhome this weekend - but it won't start anyway the house and garden are a disaster so staying home is probably for the best
