    Meh, shoot sleep means I only have time for a hound walk today before travelling to Chester (need car so no hybrid commute)

    Later needs to be a haircut ready for a weekend in Dublin

    Its trains and automobiles for me, but no planes. On the list is a presentation, a few calls, including explaining why we can't just put everything people need to known about tax on a nice 2 page PowerPoint. Hey ho.

    Morning. Wet. Wet. Wet. Found out that commuting by car and leaving at the same time as I would if I cycled means I miss the worst of the traffic and get into work 30 mins early so a 45* min earlier depart. Win win.

    Morning
    Feeling a bit weary after yesterdays ride. Not sure I can be bothered to do much today. Mrs W rang to say that her mum is going to be discharged from hospital to a care home and it’s a £1050 a week😱

    Will Mrs W's boss pay for the care and claim it as a non taxable expense?

    The MiL does have some savings, so it would be a bit under hand to get Mrs W’s boss to pay at present.
    However given Mrs W parents worked and saved all their lives it does grate that she has to pay for terminal care.

    Ooof! That's heavy!! Best make sure it's not too comfy there or else she might want to hang on for longer that you imagined.
    We were fortunate that when the MiL became elderly and infirm she was diagnosed with mental disorders so being sectioned meant that her ongoing care was paid for by the health authority.

    If it wasn't then this would have been the 'terminal care'.....

    As PN69 says, there may be some ways to get the state to fund at least part of it. Worth a look as it could help stop your OH's inheritance getting flushed down the bog (or at least slow it down):

    These days they do what’s called a Fastracked assessment, it used to be called a continuing care assessment. This decides whether it’s health care or social care, you pay for social care if you have assets above the threshold.
    The MiL has a McMillan nurse involved who has intimated that she will revisit the Fastrack assessment in 3 weeks and she will then qualify for healthcare.

    I remember that now - they did one for my old dear 2 months before she died.

    Spot of bubbly in the AA lounge at DFW. Full flight, so no upgrade however much money I throw at it. Will neck a couple of melatonin with a glass of scotch and hopefully nod off for a bit.
