    I’m actually for it too Paula. Been thinking a lot about it lately, but yes, with safeguards. They always ask if it is your own chouce before giving you the drug

    They certainly have Val. There are just so many arguments put forwards on both sides and ges, about life too. The right to choose needs an awful lot of examining. I an motcan ethicist although I have studied ethics, and I do know that you can get your head in a mess thinking about it!


  3. I tend to support this, and always have. I’m sure that the rules put in place would stop anyone just getting rid of disabled or terminally-ill relatives. It could be part of a ‘Living Will’, where you can state your preference, much like how stating ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ works now.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    Thanks Pete. I too support it. Even though my own mother attempted to get me to do it saying Ivwas a burden on the family. A LOT of pressure was put upin mecwhen Icwas too ill to fight very much, and that isvthecdrawback to it, if youvare toocweak to fight your family.nnbut then I dovalso wish ittwere oossible to go for it in this country and if it were possible it would be my choice.

    Liz, thankyou so much for your comment. Yes, I so agree with you. It is the misuse and abuse of it that would be the problem as Icwell know from my own experience when my mother wanted to force me into going to Switzerland when I had cancer, saying it was my duty. She is dead now but Icwill never forget her saying that.
    Lhow are you Liz? Have you moved into your new house yet? I have been thinking about you. Sending much love ❤️

  6. I moved in on the 8th Sept. Not quite unpacked, but livable.
    Still finding my way around the kitchen.
    Things didn’t quite go straight forward on the day. My washer had to be picked up the next day, as I couldn’t turn the water off to the washer. So needed a plumber to sort. At least I know if a local plumber now, should I need again. I got him to connect washer where I am now.

    Been and had windows measured where I want roller blinds. They will take about 3 weeks to be made and then they will contact me to sort out a day to fit them.

    Tomorrow I will put my stainless steel table up for the kitchen. I will have some electric hobs on this and get myself a mini oven without the hobs for my worktop, so I can safely have it there under cupboards.
    Luckily I already own a slow cooker for some hot dinners, otherwise its been sandwiches or pot noodles for hot meals.

    When my blinds have been fitted, I will then check out settees at British Heart Foundation, till I find what I want. Which shouldn’t take long, as there’s always something that catches my eye.

    I can’t manage being deputy. Too much with the form filling I felt already and feeling you have to be on the ball with things, but now more paperwork with mum going over a certain limit with her assets.
    I have asked the council to take over and so now await for a particular department within the council to get back to me, after giving some details.
    The plan is, by folliwing guidance given, which I am happy to do, is if council applies and gives my form to quit at same time, the court can process same time, so that mum is not without a deputy at any point. So I hope the council will follow this.

    Much love.

    Oh Liz Thank you for telling me all of that. It sounds as if it is quite exciting being in your new house even though there are things to be done it’s actually sounds really lovely. I do hope that you’ve got your blinds done and that they are really nice when you get them up. What colour are they going to be? Also you sound to be getting things sorted out well with your mum I hope things continue to go well there. I can understand also why you felt you couldn’t do that job. It sounded really stressful and it’s not something I would’ve wanted to do either. I just hope for you that you will soon be able to relax in your new home and get used to being there and that it will soon feel like home to you. You deserve it Liz. I know you have had your moments but I admire you so much for how you have stuck at everything and seen everything through and you have set your own goals and in the end achieved what you wanted to. All power to your elbow Liz and may you be very very happy in the future

    Much love to you xx

  8. It already feels like home. But it will be nice when I have my blinds up. Especially in living room. I don’t sit in there at night, with it not being private without blinds. There’s net curtains, so private in day. But better when blinds up.
    I am having blinds all same colour, in a grey. I wanted to keep this the same, so thst one day, if I get in a council place, should I choose to leave blinds there, that the estate agents would be happy with that. But if I did have to take them, then it would mean filling up holes and painting the whole of that wall, not just where it was filled to ensure bond was returned, as thats what its like usually, when it comes to private renting.
    Will be even nicer when I have a settee to be on.

    I have done some reflecting this past year and I imagine when deputyship is eventually taken over, that there will be more reflecting.

    I can’t remember if I mentioned before to you my plans for the other bedroom. But that bedroom will be my sanctuary room. One room where I won’t use any tech and a place to go and really relax, whether that will be sitting on floor cushions in the corner of the room, in quietness and stillness, or reading a book. A place to do my Pilates too. Thats some things in mind for that room. 🙂

    Oh Liz. I love the idea of a Sanctuary room. It is the sort of thing that I wanted but not possible.

    I am so glad it feels like home already. That is wonderful. I love grey by the way. It goes with anything.
