Fuzzy best wishes

Christmas was good, all remained calm. Boxing Day was also good. Mum and Gran came for lunch and all still remained calm....right up until the 29th when I woke up with another wisdom tooth infection.

But, although I write in between doses of the largest antibiotic known to man or woman (like swallowing a torpedo) and although being a bit fuzzy affected what I could do on my birthday yesterday (we played Top Trumps and watched a DVD) all is still calm.

That's because I've decided it will stay that way. No bastard tooth is going to twist my mellow... my melon....mellon...melons? Google leaves me none the wiser as to which. Something to do with the Happy Mondays though. Anyway, my melon remains untwisted.

And it needs to be because a place has come up in a care home, and a very good one, for my Gran. She moves in on Wednesday. All very sudden, but I'm hoping there will be an end to her loneliness and she will be looked after and make some new friends. It's hard to predict with Alzheimer's how a person will react to change, but I'm hoping this proves the right move.

So Happy New Year everyone. Let's hope it's a good one, without any fear.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year, with gran, son, PA and wisdom tooth all happy and sorted. And you, of course. All the calm and fearlessness you wish for.

Happy New Year, Seahorse (and a belated Happy Birthday). So glad your melons aren't twisted; that can really smart!

Also very glad to hear about your Gran. Hopefully this will mean an improved quality of life for both herself and your Mum.

Hope the infection clears up very soon.

Goldfish, yes, now I possess melons of the small canteloupe variety I find getting them in a twist most irksome. The tooth thing is just here we go again. Main concern is re Gran settling. It's a lovely, bright, imaginative place so I really hope it works out. Happy New Year

David: Happy and safe sound good to me, thank you and have a great 2008 yourself!

Sally: Yes, all sorted of sorts, and calm and fearfulness being worked on :-) Happy New Year Sally xx

Happy New Year, Seahorse.

May all your dreams come true in 2008.

Happy New Year!

So glad to hear that your Gran has somewhere to go. I'm sure it'll make a huge difference to your Mum's life. I hope the transfer there goes easily and that your Gran is happy.

Hugs from Liverpool

CSH: Thank you. My dreams are not too outrageous so maybe...Happy New Year to you too and may you continue to spread a little happiness!

Maggie: Yes it's good news really and the home is well-used to people being unsettled. They're a very caring, experienced bunch with good reports locally. Fingers crossed. Happy New Year to you xx
