Well, as I said on a thread in the General Macca section, she's home, and giving me hell already. She's definitely back to normal (to prove this she burned a tea-towel on an electric hob within a few hours of returning home - every so often, she burns a tea-towel, but we were both surprised to see it happen on an ELECTRIC appliance!)
As for the Shirley info, it does kinda fit in with what I expected it to be. I just need to watch my back in case my mother is now in league with her . . . [gulp]
The difference between genius and insanity is merely the difference between success and failure.
