Blackpool for Carer Respite?

Hi Guys...I'm back! LOL

Blackpool for Respite? YES!!!!
What a change!

The time away has done me the world of good - no offence to Coo! LOL

Mum and I shopped till we dropped, eat cream cakes, bounced on and off trams and had a date with Elvis! among others! LOL

We went to see the Rock Legends show at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom and it was
...totally brilliant!


I didn't know what to expect and I must admit, the acts were all excellent!
The Elvis guy looked mighty cute too!

So with the comfy beds, good food and bargains to be had on every corner I had a FAB time!

I guess that's why respite is so important!
I knew Coo was fine and I can totally trust Looby.
I did phone to speak to him each morning and then I could relax the rest of the day knowing he was fine.

This really meant I could have a hassle free break.
Thank God for our Direct Payment it really works so well for us!

My hope is all Carers can get a break and soon.
It's so very important.
Everyone needs a break, a chance to sleep and recharge their batteries!

Love,
