International Fleet Review, Sydney Harbour, 2013

I had to get up early to pick up Mum from the nursing home, drive to town, park the car and get onto the train. The staff had dressed her really nicely for the day, by 7 a.m. and she was waiting by the lift.

It wasn't too hard to take her out on the train. We watched the ships from the Opera House viewing point and then because Mum was tired of walking we took a ferry to Balmain and back. It was perfect weather and a nice trip.

We ate at a cafe. These days I have to choose finger food for her because she just doesn't manage a knife and fork very well. She had chicken nuggets and chips.

She also doesn't handle hamburgers or sandwiches well, wanting to pull them apart.

I was exhausted and snappy by 6.30 p.m. when I finally got her back into her room, gave her a shower and put her into her pyjamas.

It's nice that she's till managing to have fun, even if she doesn't remember the fun for long afterwards.
