Caring

This week has been a weird mix of up and down , its half term and the munchkin is home and grandad and munchkin are at each others throats 24/7 , day off yesterday for hospital with Mr BH trip to Grantham , one he hadnt been to before , lovely staff , well organised clinics and one of his minor problems hopefully sorted but theyre at least willing to try again if this little treatment doesnt work . It did however prove yet again that he needs to consider getting some wheels under his arse , he managed barely with crutches yesterday , despite him being told theyre not to be used , refused a wheelchair then ended up in agony all last night and hes currently so grumpy that no one will go near him...lol 
We are fortunately having a good waterworks and bowels phase at the moment , just a few minor lapses in the scheme of things which means ive managed a few more hours at work , its amazing just how many hours a week his problems in that direction can use up . But then i find out hes not drinking so he doesnt need the toilet and i can go to work more AAARRRGGGHH  Which is dangerous in itself with his problems. Bleedin Men .
On the depressing front i bumped into an old acquaintance who complemented me on my weight loss and asked if it was Weight Watchers or Slimming World?  I think the DWP diet rather missed her , so she then went on to tell me that what i needed was some face filler just to help with the wrinkles!! It had helped with her gastric band weight loss , the gastric band has led to 10st of weight loss , but shes now unable to work because shes passing out all over the place , she doesnt see the irony in this but her husband can afford to keep her so she wont . 
Then i was sat listening to Mr BH earwigging some locals on the radio , they were doing a fine character assassination on one of their neighbours , then i realised they were talking about someone i have known for years , they were going on about benefit scrounging druggies , taking taxies everywhere etc etc , the person they were talking about had a major motor bike accident 15 years ago , he had major head injuries and his legs are a horrible ulcerated permanent mess , he suffers from major mental health problems , he has ataxia , severe manic depression that needs regular inpatient treatment and his partner is his carer and has the patience of a saint .  People sadly only see what they want to see and believe the endless benefit scrounger programmes on the telly ...ho hum 
On a plus note I would like to thank the person who handed in my purse that I had dropped outside the Foodbank , nothing missing, they wouldnt tell me who it was other than it was a client , not that there was much in it . But an honest helpful benefit scrounger and i would gladly have given them something as a reward .
Its so often those who have the least who help the most

  1. Offering to give something when you are struggling yourself is the sign of a lovely caring person. 😇

  2. Have you ever rattled a tin for charity? I found that the people who give the most are the ones who look as if they have the least. It is a real eye-opener and very humbling. Tracy

  3. My hubby had a bad case of man flu at the beginning of half term so I can relate and sympathize with grumpy man syndrome.
    I hope the holidays improve for you all
