Birthday girl, Beth…

The 10th March sees my beautiful, lovely great-kid Bethany turn 12 years old…

She went out shopping with her birthday money I gave her with her friend and today she wanted a Sunday roast for her birthday lunch – along with her lepraucorn birthday cake she has had made her from her mum and dad.

Love her loads…

Birthday in the house…

On the 28th February my little great-kid Ryan turned three years old.

He wanted me to stay the night before his birthday and I also had to stay the following night as well, which I was only too happy to do.

I brought him a police motorbike that he can ride when charged and also put a bit of cash into his birthday card for him. I took him to see my Mam and a lovely time was had.

In the evening he had a little birthday party with his family and a dinosaur birthday cake. His mum and dad brought him a little Android tablet that he knows how to use better than we adults do – he’s an expert on Kids YouTube!Ryan Ryan

Parliament’s ‘Brexit’ – let’s repair it…

brexit-uk-leaving-eu-image-450w-442004215.jpgThere is one way the government can help us get out of this Brexit mess, if the Prime Minister loses her Brexit deal in the House…

Call a ‘state of national emergency’!

Sounds radical doesn’t it? But in fact, it could sort out a lot of problems, especially against those Remain MPs who are trying to undermine democracy by trying every trick in the book, including the House Speaker, who has twisted democracy in a way to serve a majority of MPs who represent a minority of the population’s vote in the referendum.

With a state of emergency declared, the government could, and should, suspend Parliament. It would then allow the government to continue to function, without hindrance, to try and sort out a better deal from the EU or ultimately leave with a ‘No Deal’ on 29 March by default, with World Trade Organisation rules – for which in the long run wouldn’t hinder the country greatly at all.

The army could then be used to help protect and secure our border ports, airports and the Channel Tunnel, along with helping the underfunded and undermanaged police force on the streets, especially around Parliament, to help maintain peace and order until after the 29 March when we leave the EU.

Within a month of leaving the EU, the government could then end the ‘state of emergency’, get the Queen to recall parliament and then get back to the business for what the MPs are elected for… To represent the people – not their own self-interests!

No ‘care’ in the community…

I have had a story published in my local newspaper this week because I have had all my care stopped by the county council towards my Direct Payment to the social services…

They gave me just one week’s notice to get in place private care with my current care provider, but because I am now eesponsible for full payment for it, I’ve had to reduce it to just three hours per week now – you couldn’t make it up!

Send in the clowns…

I have been to the circus today with my Mam and her resident friends from her care home…

It was gentle, fun in places, and very entertaining for children and people with late dementia like my mother has… But it was very cold and a little long to sit there and try and keep her entertained through the intervals.

But she enjoyed it very much and that is all that matters, especially when you love your mum very much.
