Our Busy Life
We have been going out and about quite a lot lately various shops to look at shower panels, a visit to our friends Barbara and Tony, a social visit to Andrea and Vince (including dinner) and a trip to Burton End to try out the new access via ramps. It is good that we are now able to get in and out of my car so we have our independence back. The Financial Adviser came on Thursday to do our Financial Assessment which we had both been dreading, not that we have anything to hide just that we are both of a certain age and we don't like other people nosing around our bank statements - anyway the good news is that as we are not intending to have any further care, we do not have to have an Assessment and the really good news is that the care we have had so far comes courtesy of ECC or NHS and we don't have to pay. (This is not what I was told by the Hospital Social Worker who told me we would definitely have to pay). So cheers all round.
We have had a really busy weekend, Ryan and Michelle came Friday, on Saturday we joined our friends from the North West, Ted and Pat Kelly and Carolyn and John Smith, who came all the way to spend an evening with us. They stayed at a local Hotel and we joined them for dinner and it was wonderful to enjoy their company and special sense of humour. On Sunday Jenna, the physio came - more later - and in the afternoon Suzanne, Chas and Sheila came.
