Hi to everyone. It's very cold in the UK right now. When I let mother's horse out at 7 am the frost is just forming on the grass. Sign in to see full entry.

We had some rain! This is the field where I look after my mother's horse CJ. The level is normally way down on this. Sign in to see full entry.

Nights drawing in

I notice now how short the daylight is now. Having to feed the horse in the morning, I have to be down at the stables at 6.30 am. But now it does not get light enough until at least 20 to 7. No point going any earlier because it's just too dark to see. There are huge flocks of Canada Geese flying over at that time in the morning. Many people have already taken their dogs for a walk in the dark. The horse is tucked well before dark in the afternoon. Sign in to see full entry.

Still Here!

Hi, this is a brief note to let everyone know we are still here and doing well. Mum is out of the hospital and making a full recovery. I never thought I would ever write those words. I'm still looking after the horse, and although he was limping, we had the farrier out to see to his hooves it turned out he had an abscess on his foot, but it's healing fine. Mother is recovering from her stroke and walking up and down the stairs on her own. So we are bouncing back. Sign in to see full entry.

Looking after the Horse!

My mother's pride and joy is her pony: "CJ". Due to her being in the hospital, I have to look after him. It sounds a big deal, but he is no trouble really. You feed him and he goes out in the field; you feed him and he comes into his stable. It's no more complicated than that. I know nothing about horses, but I can't bring myself to get rid of him, just because mum is in hospital. She is doing a lot better. Still covid positive but she's off the drip and all the machines they had her wired to. Sign in to see full entry.

Doing well

Mum is doing very well, Her stroke has improved and her mouth is much firmer than it was. I went to visit on Monday and even though she was in a covid ward, she was bouncing back and complaining about the food. I have been all over that hospital and thank God, she is being moved back to A-2 where she got the best care. My sister says she will be in another month, which suits us as this time she will get a proper assessment. Lots to worry about once she gets home, but still better than nothing....

Still here...Update

Just to let you all know that mum came home after her stroke, but had a fall, broke her ribs and ended up back in the hospital. We had a call from the doctor telling us to prepare for the end, only to find she had covid. To cap it all, I went to see her, caught covid and lay in bed for 4 days. My sister Sharon went to see her today and says she is back to complaining about the food and saying she wants to come home. So back to normal. This has been the most intense 2 weeks of my life. I feel a... Sign in to see full entry.

Mum's update

A big "thank you," to everyone who sent me such kind thoughts. Mother is doing a lot better. She has speech impediments, but they are a lot better since last week. It has shaken her up so much she has promised to stop smoking. I am looking after the horse. Well feeding it and mucking it out. It eats, and goes out; then it eats and goes in. It's no more complicated than that. The family goes and sees her in Peterborough hospital every other day. As she does not want us there every day. The... Sign in to see full entry.
