This is a question I have been asking myself over and over tonight. I got in from work and nan had left me a note to say Neil had called round.
Wonderful. But I’m not sure I know a Neil! Of course she couldn’t remember what he looked like, or what he had knocked for. But when I checked she had some money missing. And so of course she was getting worked up, despite me trying to keep it all behind her back.
It may of course be completely innocent. Neil may be completely harmless, but when you care for someone and these things happen it really does put you off of ever leaving the house.
That would be ridiculous however. Tempted as I am to lock nan in and wrap her in bubblewrap it won’t do either of us any good limiting our freedoms. I’d like to think she learns from her mistakes, but now she can’t remember anything happening today at all.
Which I’m grateful for, I’d rather she felt calm and peaceful (someone should). But I wish there was a way to stop her letting any old random in (this happened yesterday when she let a fella in, just because he knew my name. Fortunately it was harmless but did lead to me talking to someone I should probably should have kept in the past).
