Pretty good considering. My memory isnít too good from time to time though. In fact, I feel a bit useless.
I guess Iím used to it now. The paracetamol helps on days when it gets too bad.
Sometimes it slips my mind. Jill comes in each morning after breakfast and reminds me to take it if Iíve forgotten, but for the last few weeks, Jill has been away so I just havenít bothered taking the pills. Sometimes I think life would be easier for everyone if I just wasnít around at all.
I live alone since my husband died, which I think was nearly a year and a half ago. It feels like yesterday. My place adjoins my eldest daughterís house, so there are usually family around. I havenít seen much of them lately though.
I used to have friends around for afternoon tea. They havenít been for a while though. I donít like going out much anymore, so I donít go to my daughterís houses unless they come and make me go. My grandkids bring their kids around sometimes and they like to watch television. They also used to like my vegetable garden, but itís mostly weeds now.
Yes, since Chris died. I miss him every day.
