Down On The Farm [May. 22nd, 2013|09:20 am]
Tony Grist
Before there was Wikipedia there was Everyman's Encyclopaedia.  My mother has a copy. It doesn't continuously update itself but otherwise it's perfectly serviceable. if you want to know- say- whether Malaga is a city or a province it'll tell you.

The answer, by the way, is "both".

i used to wonder how we managed before there was an Internet. Now I remember.

My mother is bright and cheerful. It's just her legs that don't work.  We could hire professionals to live in and look after her at enormous expense or do the job ourselves. We've opted for the latter.

Life's a bit slow down on the farm. My mother has a routine that is not our routine but we'll adapt to it- or die trying. Since we're going to be living with her most of the time we need to import some home comforts. The rabbits for starters. My mother has several sheds she doesn't use and I've cleared one to house them. Also- in spite of the excellence of Everyman's Encyclopaedia- we're arranging Internet access.

I hope it all works out and the journey to and fro doesn't become too tiring.

Unfortunately neither I nor my brother are in a position to move in with Dad and neither of us have room for him to move to live with one of us. Also our house is almost entirely stairs (built on a slope, so 3 levels) and so totally unsuitable for someone who can barely walk. We're therefore trying to get him to move into a care home near to one or other of us.

We only plan to return home once a month. I think it's doable. Besides Ailz loves driving. Also we're quite looking forward to living in Kent- and only 30 miles from London.

My sister has the problem you have vis-a-vis stairs. She and I were talking the other day about how our mother may never be able to visit her house again.
