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. 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.
