Dementia: Playing It Safe With The Sky Blues


I’m an armchair supporter of the Sky Blues these days.  To be perfectly honest I wouldn’t pay to watch professional footballers as they are overpaid Prima Donnas.  Coventry City are on featured Sky One tonight playing Peterborough and it is a rare chance to see my team in action.  Unfortunately, we don’t have that channel on our T V so I need to find a local venue where I can watch the match

Maureen remains tired and confused today.  It wouldn’t be safe to leave her to her own devices for a couple of hours this evening.  Fortunately,  Clarice has agreed to come round and sit with her while I go out.  I will make it a fait accompli; collect Clarice and bring her round.  If I gave Maureen the choice she would say that she is quite safe to be left on her own: those days have gone!
