So much fro getting a life. This week looks pretty heavily booked already. All day Tuesday, all day Wednesday and Friday morning committed to meetings with County Council about cuts. Friday afternoon and this morning going through sons 'social care assessment' that's just arrived. (Still waiting for health care assessment - current timescale is now 3 to 4 months due to unavailability of staff.) So we've got this afternoon and Thursday to do everything else. And somewhere among all this is our sons care - which is not insubstantial and the most important thing of all.
I did get to chop wood yesterday - may fit in a bit of soldering this afternoon (I like soldering).
Son seems in reasonable health just now, slight chest infection coming under antibiotic control and scalp psoriasis settling down with gentle care. This psoriasis gets me down sometimes. It's quite severe and gets a lot worse when he's ill or stressed - and he can't tell us or scratch it himself. We just have to watch it really carefully and treat it quickly but gently. I can't really imagine how distressing it must be to have an itchy head all the time and be unable to do anything about it. I know it's theoretically one of his more minor problems but it must have a fairly major impact on his quality of life - that's why we get so concerned about it.
Anyway, back to the paperwork/meetings - I retired to get away from that - didn't happen.
