I was due to go back to Wales for Easter yesterday, but I am still in London. Mum, eleven people on her floor, and a couple of staff are sick and she had a fall on Friday night. If I had driven down, a visit couldn't be guaranteed so I have put it back a week. That said John did manage to get in and see her in the afternoon.
I also missed my usual 10:30 a.m. Skype call with her. It was booked and confirmed but she didn't come online. I don't resent it, I understand that the staff must have been very busy, but is the first time I have missed this call since we started them.
How long has it been? Let's see. The first reference to the calls on these spindrift pages is on Sunday April 5th 2020 (passim) talking about a call the day before, and the first record of Ty Enfys Care Home in my Skype records is April 4th as well; pretty much proving that was the inaugural call.
Over two years before I missed one. Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all.
