Update about lack of posts during the last two weeks.

Hello everyone. You may or may not have noticed I have not posted during the last two weeks. This lack of posts is due to change of  circumstances in my life.

As many of you will know I have been my mum’s full time carer for almost 12 years. However, due to that situation becoming too much for me mentally and physically and my mum needing more help and care than I could give her she is now in a nursing home. Hope fully, she will be happy there.

I am working slowly through a new post which I hope to post at the weekend.

Thank you.




  1. Chris – Thank you for creating and maintaining this blog. I’ve only recently subscribed but it truly looks like a labor of love. Sending good thoughts for both you and your Mom during this time of transition.

  3. Although I really like your posts, you should take all the time you need, it shouldn’t be a pressure to update. Hope your mum’s ok and getting the proper care.

  4. Chris, becoming the parent to a parent is one of the hardest things we ever have to do. My heart aches for you, but I also know that this will be a better life for you both. Know that there are many people who care.

  5. I know this hasn’t been easy for you. Take your time. We’ll be waiting for you. Wishing all the best for you and your mum.


  6. Oh Chris, what a terrible thing to have to go through. I can’t imagine how difficult a change this must be for you both, but I hope it makes things easier to cope with. I lost my gran (aged 90) two weeks ago so I am very aware of how much family ties can mean. Take care.
