After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. These are just brilliant! I had forgotten how dashing John was in the Sweeney years (so different from his charming Morse)..Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thanks for these! Amazing how even in his younger days, those eyes were so piercing and compelling!

  3. Thank you so much for posting this. I thought I’d spend a few minutes reminiscing and ended up spending the afternoon with John Thaw watching various videos and reading articles.
