Hello Yvonne, thank you for your kind thoughts. Yes I agree, I always used to ring my mum in the evening and when she didn’t answer we got the car out and travelled for one hour to make sure she was okay. Nearly every time she had not put the handset back on the stand properly. We had landlines then, no mobiles. We took her shopping, and did her gardening and decorating for her.
I have not seen any of my neighbours at all, We had a big extension built quite a few years ago so I have two lounges, one in the front of the house and one in the back and also a separate through dining kitchen, so I spend all my time in the back of the house which looks onto the garden. I have a very large garden which goes all around my home with tall trees and hedges so I cannot see out.
I could not put my bins out today as I could not move them in the thick snow so they will have to wait until the weather gets better, there is no way I am risking falling otherwise goodness knows how long I will be laid there. I can just imagine me falling then ringing my sons and it goes to voicemail and three days later they will text me and I will be dead. Sorry for being so morbid but sometimes I wonder what if I fell in the house, no-one would know. I have thought about having one of those buzzers that hangs around my neck but I would have thought that they are for people with no family, but because I don’t hear from them much perhaps I should get one.
Anyway, I have got that off my chest. I know I won’t be seeing anyone this weekend but I am hoping to get out next week as I have to pick up my new glasse.
You take care.
