It's been a while since I have recounted a Mother story. She insisted on a 120 day settlement period for her house, which probably will suit the property developer buyers anyway. She is so determined to have this last garage sale. We will know on the 14th of this month whether their financing of the purchase is ok and the conditional sale will go ahead. The buyers must then pay the balance of the non refundable 5% deposit.
I called Mother a couple of days ago and she couldn't hear me on the phone. She said I will call you back when ABI Brother is home and he can turn on the speaker on the phone. I can't believe he hasn't shown her the speaker button already.
Several months ago after numerous attempts by her doctor and his nursing staff to clear her right ear of wax, she went to a specialist woman who really knew what she was doing and although the cost was $80, her ear was cleared.
The wax has built up again but because of COVID she is reluctant to return to the specialist and again her doctor and his nurses can't clear her ear. She is effectively deaf in one ear and so can no longer hear on the telephone.
But wait. I know what you are thinking. Doesn't she have two ears? Yes and her other ear is fine, but that is not her telephone ear. Only her right (blocked) ear works for the telephone. For some reason it is impossible for her to hold the telephone to her left ear.
