Up early tomorrow morning to drive the four hundred miles up to Glasgow to visit my mother in a care home. It's an all too common problem, just about everyone I know has got an elderly relative with dementia.
As I'm driving, rather than flying, it makes packing so much easier, you can just keep flinging things into the car, 'oh, that'll come in handy....'
The dog is coming too. He is full of nervous excitement. He hates it if I go away, he's pretty sure he is going too, his basket and bowls are in the car, but he doesn't know for certain.
He loves car journeys and is ever so good. He just lies down in the back and goes to sleep. Wish I could !
