That's it for another year

DS1 and his GF have just left, it was lovely to see them both, it's easier for people to visit now we are on dry land.

We showed them round our new home, which took about 5 minutes. Then we had lunch, I'd bought some nibbles which were all eaten. I can't do a cooked meal easily as we don't yet have a table. They bought me a bunch of roses which are currently sat in my spare kettle as I don't seem to have a vase. I must buy one next time I'm out.

Steve seems to be sulking yet again I have no idea why and zero interest in discovering the reason.

This is a sensitive question and you may not want to answer it, that's understandable. In the past you've mentioned how Steve's personality changed after his stroke and you also linked to an article about a woman discussing her husband's changes after his brain injury (or stroke, I can't remember which it was). The woman described how her husband was very selfish, argumentative and normal 'give and take' behaviour went out of the window.

Can I ask if Steve is aware that at times he is being difficult to live with and is OK behaving in this way? or has he no comprehension at all that he is being unkind?

Trouble at the big house!

Not long after we moved here we had a visit from a man, Mike, who worked for the housing association. He was condescending and patronising a...
