I am a 50 year old carer for my 51 year old husband. I have fybramyalgia, spondylitis, osteo arthritus n couple more illnesses. I have my 4 grandsons over the weekend. My oldest is 8 and downs syndrome. He can talk be as wide as any teenager and has attude and a mind of his own.hastes school always will. He comez down at least 2 days after school coz he says I need him. Hes so sweet. But more work than 20 boys. Exhausted this morning as usual on a monday. Now time to get the house back to normal as you cam immagine
 Dont get much done with 4 boys youngest being 9 months 2 5year. Olfs aswell but I love it and wouldnt have it any other way. Wish I was ok so I cld do more. But somedays the trampolines about asbfar as they get. Going to get the back garden designed for my oldest we guy Cole as he will use it most. Any ideas?
