After feeling so down-hearted yesterday, I am pleased to report that I felt much better today. I had a long chat with DH this morning, that helped enormously. Then I sent a detailed appraisal of my mum's needs to my siblings ahead of a social services assessment on Friday.
My sister sent an appreciative response. I don't expect a response from the brother who is undergoing cancer treatment, as he had a hospital appointment today. I haven't had any response from my oldest brother, who needs to get his butt into gear and stop expecting everyone else to do the running around (I won't hold my breath on that one). If he does reply, he'll quite likely have some thoughts that no-one else has had, which will be useful. I doubt if they'll be anything like "I'll do this, that or the other", though.
Unfortunately, I didn't have my planned run tonight, as unexpected visitors arrived, which was great for my mood as they were very lively and were a breath of fresh air.
I won't get a run tomorrow night either, as I'll be collecting my sister from the airport. I'm really looking forward to seeing her, and catching up.
I don't feel too bad about the runs being cancelled, as I've been running up and down stairs and shifting furniture today, so that's been a different type of exercise.
