It was and still is Cold!!!

Sorry for the mass upload and lack of comments but Mr's Ps mum has recently come out of hospital and to say that social services have not been helpful is an understatement. Looks as if we will have to involve all and sundry just to get somebody to help a fine lady of 91. It all seems fine if you can pay but she has very limited funds and we want to keep her in her home as long as we can. Blood boiling, toes curling, green rage coming. Otherwise have a great weekend and lets all appreciate what we have, some are worse of than us.
I like this the dof and colours are great, and such a simple subject

like the bokeh
Every sympathy with you over sorting out assistance.
I expect you have already been there , but have you tried Age Concern for a/ideas/ inspiration.

Its an exhausting process for all and sundry.

Ps thanks for the Fav !

@june Thanks June, yep looking at all sources. You are so right it is tiring just because nobody wants to stand up and say this is what is available. All budget and beaurocracy!!!

Lovely shot. I do hope Mrs P's mum gets some help. Anyone who has reached 91 deserves all of the care and respect they can get.
And I do hope you have a great weekend too.

I have just read your info (which I didn't see on my phone). Sorry to hear about the SS treatment. We had the same problem with my parents and it is so frustrating. I hope that you can find a solution that works for you all.

Lovely colours. Hope your Mum in law gets the right help soon. 91 is a good age but no fun when you need help.

Lovely shot - hope the social services come to the rescue so she can continue to live in her own home!

A beautiful shot! Sorry to hear about problems with social services - we have had similar problems. Persistence (or making a nuisance of yourself) eventually gets results, although it's a very frustrating process!

THis is a lovely capture with great tones and focus. Sorry to hear about Mrs. P. Mother. Very sad circumstances and I can see why you are upset. Best wishes to her and to you both as well!

I'm sorry to hear about your mil's illness. We found when my husband's grandmother was in the same situation that you have to know your rights and insist on them, because the authorities will never tell you what help you are entitled to. CAB were very helpful.

I agree with @dh . You need to go and bang on a few tables - remember, 'it's the squeakiest wheel that gets the oil.' Hope you get it sorted.

Lovely colours and tones. Particularly like the background. Good luck with getting things sorted!
