Recently there have been a couple of queries about what this acronym is so an explanation is due.
This was fabricated by me, myself and I as the internet name for my Deaf Blind Elderly Mother. S
To be honest, she is not totally deaf although the TV volume is now set at 42!! Nor is she totally blind although with advanced macular degeneration she sees very little clearly and has a white cane, a disability sticker and a Vision Impaired Badge! (In case you ask we do not have a cat, that is a toy one the DBEM received as a gift last Christmas).
For the past 27 years she has lived with me and has occupied herself with various voluntary positions with a couple of charities, until some years ago when a couple of years of ill health meant I put the brakes on that.
Since then she has been knitting - woollen sweaters and cardigans for small children (up to the age of 4) which, in an annual pilgrimage in April of each year, we take to the local Hospice shop. Even with her very poor eyesight she continues to knit by the "fingertip feel method" and this provides me with many opportunities to unravel and remedy.
Recently she had a bad fall and has been recovering. Dutiful daughter insisted that she needed a more respectable dressing gown so now she really is "in the pink"
