Thinking about hope

It seems like a good time of year to write about hope!  It plays a big part in that rollercoaster of emotions that is caring, and I never realised what it was before that, or how irrelevant it seems to many in that logical, fact based world of ours.

Don't spoil the surprise!

BAH HUMBUG!

Every year there's one - and every year I want to bang my head on the shop counter and tell the person behind it what a complete fool they are!

PIcture the scene - we are out shopping and I see something that I want to buy for my daughter for Christmas.  It is sooooooooooo easy!  I pick it up and keep it behind the wheelchair at all times.  When we get to the till I position the wheelchair so that she can't see what I'm buying.  The item in question then stays in its bag until we get home and I can hide it. 

The begining of caring

Okay so I fail at planning blogs and planning what to write.
So as use hardly know anything about me I thought id tell you things about me and how I began caring for my mum (I also care for my brothers) but my mums illness affected me the most.
