At mum's care home on Wednesday, the activities ladies held a tai-chi session for the residents, as movement is good for their muscles and well-being. They roped me in as well. Mum was reading a Henley-on-Thames leaflet so she didn't join-in.
Tai-chi is harder than it looks! Mum noticed that I was waving my arms about in a graceful manner and stopped reading the leaflet. She looked slightly bemused (as would you if you saw what I was doing) and started smiling.
It was also somebody's birthday, so we all sang "Happy birthday to you" to him and gave him three "hip-hip hoorays" followed by a round of applause.
To the astonishment of the activities ladies, mum started to clap her hands. 5,000iu/day of Vitamin D3 + me being chatty, For The Win!
The nurse on duty also had a chat with me about the best way to give mum 10ml/day of fish oil and 2.5ml/day of Epsom Salts. She later told me that mum swallowed the fish oil without any problems (mum loves smoked salmon) and swallowed the Epsom Salts dissolved in a cup of juice without any problems either.
In other news, I now have a Blackberry 8900. This blog looks rather different when displayed on a tiny screen.
EDIT: I now ache all over!
