... and other stuff ...
So after one week away at Nikon headquarters in Johannesburg, I got my new D80 back with the hot pixel a thing of the past - they apparently remapped the sensor so that the dead pixels take on the characteristics of the neighbouring pixels - or something far more technical than that
My very old recently widowed mother is out of hospital following a fractured hip & operation to fix it with a steel plate & screws. It all sounds very bionic, but is in actual fact really very depressing. We have a day nurse, a night nurse and weekend nurses on rota. Things can't go on like this - to this end I have made a massive decision to have her admitted to a frail care facility. The move will be traumatic, I know; and it's my job to sort out everything - decide what she can take to this small room and sell off the rest. It's all stuff I grew up with as well, so it's a very meaningful and nostalgic time for me to sort through everything and put most of it on the 'auction' pile. Sad sad sad.
But I do believe that this will be for the best; the carers at the facility I'm booking her in to are really kind and warm people and the place is clean and well run. I have seen numerous old age homes in varying stages of cleanliness and homeliness.
Currently I'm running on empty - but there are many miles still to go.
Thank you to all who've had the patience to listen to me moan - and many thanks for supporting my gallery and writing me sweet notes
I love to hear from you and appreciate your kind comments.
