I don't really know how I feel. I've been away for quite a while - although it seems longer - looking after my mother.
She fell over and broke her wrist in two places - although I'd have thought that her bunions would have worked like stabilisers and kept her upright!
However, she had the plaster cast off a few weeks ago, so I've been watching over her while my eldest sister (who lives next door to her) went on holiday to Scotland.
It's been tough going, and I didn't feel like talking to anyone or visiting this forum. I did look in from time-to-time, to try to keep up to date with people's birthdays, but I didn't feel like hanging around or really getting involved with any posts.
Kids can't choose their mother's, but I did what was right, not what I wanted.
It may take me a few days to get back into my stride, as the shadow of the last few weeks is still with me, but I returned home yesterday, and I'm beginning to feel like my old(ish) self!
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)
