    my misgivings are completely justified, and from what isaw of their planning, i'm well out of it.

    ho hum.
    it's all go here.
    is there a reward for the shortest contract?

    A mate did 45 minutes including half hour break at Maccy D's he was there shorter than the customers so 15 minutes to beat. No it wasn't Suity or Brillo's marriage.

    Hey if its diving like an over earnest kamikaze you are better off out of it.

      I spent ages dithering over what to watch tonight, but couldn’t make my mind up. In the end I just decided to rewatch I, Robot (2004). It turns out exactly the same thing happened a year ago September:

Very good indeed, despite the obvious nonsense about computer science and stuff.
      Maybe I’m a robot and the dithering plus watching that film is a hidden message, embedded by my creator, manifesting itself?

      Anyway, it’s good fun as these things go. It occurred to me this time that (minor spoiler alert) the thing about the new robots being linked to the company’s HQ at all times, presumably via wi-fi or cellular, is a bit like Alexa and suchlike beasts

      Goodnight all

        It's the internet of things - in this case however the things are large and can move.

          Today is mostly depressing. I would not post anything if it was not for the imminent century.

                    This is all reminding me of what we had with GMIL.

                    UTI's are a bugger for those suffering from dementia. For some reason they exacerbate the symptoms and can cause serious personality changes. Sadly they are also very common and an increasing frequency are sign that the patient is becoming unable to care for themselves.

                    I'm sure you've probably had this conversation but it may well be time to start thinking about long term care. It's difficult, but in the long run is the best choice for all concerned. Caring for an elderly relative with dementia yourself is really, really, hard unless you have a lot of professional support and even then its only a short term solution. You can't provide 24 hour care on your own, which is essentially what they need as the dementia progresses.

                    Depending on the hospital you may find they won't want to discharge her without a care plan in place, so start looking for care home places sooner rather than later. Many will do 2 week respite stays that give patients and relatives a chance to see what it would be like before making a commitment. This is what we did with GMIL after her last stay in hospital. Arranged a 2 week "holiday" for her a a local care home. By the time we got to the end of the stay she had essentially forgotten she had ever been anywhere else and had settled in quite happily to stay in the "Guesthouse". I'm not going to pretend any of it was easy, but it did work out for the best for her and MrsB.
