Spoke to the hospital again today.

Cliff has requested to go into residential care. Which sounds like a good thing. However they told me he wanted to move to Devon as he has a nephew down there. I responded by telling them he doesn't have a nephew down there but I wonder if that will get passed on. Not sure if they are confused or he is, or if this is a language problem. I remember lots of miss communication with my dad and hospital staff was down to them only half understanding him and filling in the gaps with bad guesses. Anyway I can't see Torbay council taking on Enfield residents.

I'll see if I can get his social worker's number tomorrow, too late in the day to talk to anyone today. I think I better get things straight before they zoom off at a tangent on the wrong information.

Off to Seattle early tomorrow morning.

Maybe he thinks you are the nephew in Devon. I mean, I had a whole bunch of people assume I'd moved to the USA permanently when I went there to visit Andi!

He does realise that you didn't move to Devon with your dad....?

Perhaps he thinks you've been coming back to London every time you go down the pub with him!

Either the hospital staff have got it arse about face or he's lost it.
