We put in the order for the new window frame a few weeks before we learnt that a service flat will soon be available in our village. Yet, we decided to have the work done anyway.
We will be visiting the flat next Friday, but the chances that my mother will get it, are almost non-existent, because there are at least five people who have a better place on the waiting list. Yet, it is a step in the right direction: finding a comfortable place for her to live, other than our huge family home which is way too large for her to upkeep. Not to mention the garden, which she loves. I'm sure she will miss it. The garden and the pretty stray cat that sits every day waiting in an old flower pot, until my mother comes out to give it the leftovers of her meals-on-wheels lunch.
