I arrived home one day to find the house full of gas.
Then there was the electric kettle that melted on the gas hob. The lodger got the blame for that.
Mum is booked in for a memory test early next year.
My brother and his partner visited.
I asked him if they wanted to take Mum out somewhere. He said "No" as though the idea hadn't crossed his mind. I was stunned. Eventually, we drove separately to Ilkley. They arranged to meet us at Craiglands for afternoon tea. I waited in the foyer with Mum for 30 minutes beyond the appointed time. We were just about to leave when they turned up, saying they’d been doing a bit of window-shopping.
Once all the visitors had left, Noella made a reappearance: M met her coming out of the lift with Jemima. She said nothing but Jemima, who seemed to be acting as her mouthpiece, said, "we've all got to learn from this and we're really sorry that this has happened to Elizabeth".
Noella was in the office as I left but ignored me.
