Yes its been a while! Sadly my dear old pop passed away a couple of months back and I was rather a busy bee. The ladies in the office at Tamar Care took the helm for a couple of days so as I could spend some time not getting dressed and having a good cry. My dad was my best friend and would be constantly burdened with my daily woes and life's little problems, to which he always had some words of wisdom. My dad was also on the receiving end of our support - having to work all day myself some of our team would pop in and check on him and he was fond of them all - and vice versa. So it was comforting to know that my grief was shared. All in all it was a difficult time for us as a family as it is for anyone when they lose someone special. Other news: We have just had our Cornwall Council service inspection and eagerly await the results of that, we have a couple more lovely ladies joining our team and we survived the snow relatively unscathed with mainly no change to our service. The team battled on regardless - walking to our more vulnerable clients where necessary and helping each other by car sharing and swapping to clients that were nearer to home for them. The office team worked from home, ringing clients to check that they were warm and well and co-ordinating the staffing team - it was no easy feat but we did it together. I'm still getting over the fact that we even had snow in this part of the country! Its very common on the moors but the city centre is unheard of, other than a little flurry now and then in February. Well, that's it for now - more to follow soon and I must go and catch a ferry and get to work. It would not do for the boss to be late!
