Adventures with
Mum and Aunty Norrie

My sister Cathy and I warned my brother Graeme that Mum and Norrie were being nasty to each other. Graeme wouldn’t believe it.

"Mum doesn’t have a nasty bone in her body," he said.

Not long after Norrie was out of hospital, Graeme and my sister-in-law, Helen, visited Mum and Norrie. Mum with help from Helen, made a cup of coffee for the four of them. Norrie had walked with the aid of her walking frame from her unit to Mum’s unit – about 100 metres. She still knows the way there and back to her own unit.

I received a phone call from my brother.

“I am so glad you told me about Mum and Aunty Norrie bickering. I can’t believe it. Mum said the most nasty things to Norrie and Norrie got livid and banged her fists on the table. I just can’t get over it. I’ve never seen or heard anything like it from either of them. I’ve never heard Mum talk to anyone like she did to Norrie today. Where on earth did she get that nasty streak and the words and from where has Norrie got her temper? I am so glad you warned me.”
