Of course it is possible to do these things yourself, but the finish will never be as [...]
For years now I have been taking a very aged relative to see her rather poorly son in hospital. It’s quite an expedition for both of us and it starts back at her home even before the trauma of getting her into my car. On one occasion it was chaotic – she couldn’t find her [...]
