I went to the colmado this morning and stopped in to see Lala my neighbour. She is 80 and lives with her toyboy 73 year old husband. One of her daughters lives next door. I often call in to have a chat with her, and this morning she asked me about my mother. How old she was and where she lived. I explained that my mother lived in England and would be 80 this year and she asked me who looked after her.
No one does, I answered and Lala was appalled. I explained that my mum was fit and well, and that maybe when she needed help she would go into an old people's home. She was totally horrified when I told her that. It just wouldn't happen here. I know that when I become old and infirm, my step children will look after me, and not only that, I will command the most respect in the home. What a great change over the UK. I just hope the boys and their eventual wives know what they are letting themselves in for!
