Today’s a sad day for I shift downstairs. My bedroom has been upstairs and I have showered in the bathroom up there. But my increasing frailty means I’m losing confidence on the stairs and increasing afraid of falling.
So my downstairs study will also double as my bedroom. There is an ensuite off it so I can shower there. There will be the stimulation of change and having to establish new rituals but it’s also a concession and a retreat. It’s part of a diminution of responsibility and power.
Two strong men have helped Anne shift the furniture and oxygen generator.
