  • What I said –

    Could I please have 2 cups of tea, and could you open both blinds and the door to the terrace?

    What carer hears –

    Can I have one cup of tea?

     

    I am on a cycle of essentially repeating […]

  • My long term handy man came round yesterday. An old school Russian, who speaks no more English now than he did 25 years ago, what a versatile fella he is. His lovely wife comes to translate and also assist.

    He […]

    Thé Carer i have at the moment is very kind hearted but doesn’t ever speak! 😂 So she’s not good company….
    It’s like being by myself when she is with me, so it’s not what I want, at all.

    Its the black South […]

  • Hi,

    As someone who has spent time in a care-based role I felt that it is important to give you some important feedback regarding one of your Carers (Arunis) that I witnessed in action when I was visiting my […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, All Saints ✅ 1 week ago

    All Saints – really great group – almost fanatical crowd. Can’t say I’m THAT into them, but they can certainly strut still, and have definitely still got it.

     

    RGR – 8/10.

    We i did, to be fair.

    Latest Male carer is proving himself to be bone idle.

    I’ve gone from Boris Karloff to Lurch from The Adam’s Family.

    How do these people get care positions??

     

    My email to the […]

    It’s coming home.

    What is?

    The England football team, I’d say, tomorrow morning.

    Surely this nonsense can’t go on and on? They were no good when they left for Russia, so how can they possibly be good […]

    Blimey, it was like an episode off DIY SOS here today ?! All these lovely mates and the odd professional turning up at more or less the same time to help me out.

    Today I have, in no particular order, […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, ? 1 week, 3 days ago

    I asked Boris to move a desk top fan for me. As he moved it, the base fell off altogether.  He didn’t seem to notice that at all, despite it being a foot long.

    Then he did see it. He picked it up and held it […]

    I was offered sex with a 68 year old lady today.

    In exchange, I was supposed to advertise some kind of bathroom cleaner.

    I declined, because I am a person with high moral standards and […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Jeez. 1 week, 4 days ago

    There’s practical, and there’s impractical. Between these two there are degrees of practical and impractical. Having grown up with practically minded people around me, i wouldn’t in my youth have classed mysel […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Spasms 1 week, 5 days ago

    These days I seem to get a spell every single day where my spasms just will not stop. For 3-4 hours they are pretty non stop.  Then, at some point, they peter out, for no particular reason.  Perhaps my muscles j […]

    Two hours ago I left Boris to take about 12 things from the car into the flat, all stuff from the storage unit.

    I know that when I get back itll be in a large and haphazard pile in the middle of the lounge.

     

  • Who cleans a bathroom floor barefoot with filthy feet ? With every step you make the wet floor more dirty than it was to start with. When you try to leave the bathroom you then leave dirty footprints wherever you […]

    • Unsurpassed… come back ???

    • I always remember when my Mum worked at Pascall’s the Sweet factory in Mitcham. I s remember asking her what qualifications you have to have to work there and she said “As long as you have a pulse then the jobs yours”. This still makes me laugh to this day, Has Boris a pulse? Love to you Margaret x x x

  • Last night I went to a gig with a man, for the first time. I think I’ve always thought it was a bit gay to do that…  but now I’ve embraced my non sexist attitude I have also realised how incredible stra […]

  • Sorry Russ, phone problems, all sorted now. So yes slow reply. Hope you are good (as well as can be expected). No it is not a live in job. It’s 5 days a week, 7 hours a day, 10 am til 5 pm. It is fantastic, local, […]

    Having been ‘ engaged in litigation ‘ for some years now, with one thing and another, I decided yesterday to disengage.

    I gave up on the fight for what my ex wife owes me, on the basis that she is abs […]

    • Sometimes you just have to let it go. I have tried not to judge in the absence of knowing your Ex but seriously from the outside – as a mother- her motives are questionable. Likely she doesn’t read the blog and wouldn’t give a damn anyway but she has placed her own interests over that of her children- full stop. You can build a story from all sides but at the end of the day- your girls are fortunate to have a father that cares and has cared. It takes many sides- she holds a shared accountability but clearly cannot see it. You are right to move on- God knows how long the girls would be dragged through this to tell a story that likely has become
      so distorted it no longer matters. It’s a good thing your Ex doesn’t deal in family law- this would not be a testimonial. It all just makes me ill.

    • Wedding photos – shred them and put the ones of her in the dustbin. She deserves to end up on the tip. Love to you as always Margaret xx
