… Dad’s birthday today. He would have been 92. Two years ago he was enjoying two parties – one for the extended family, and one for all his friends and neighbours! He had a whale of a time, loved seeing everyone and made a little speech. He was tickled pink to reach 90.
But I hope I don’t … :no: I think I would rather go before I get very frail and very elderly and my faculties start disappearing and I need help for the simplest things. Not that I will have any choice :crazy:
Today Hub and I took Daughter Nr 2 and children to visit my Li’l Bro (although he’s bigger than me) and his wife and family. They moved recently and we decided we wanted to inspect their ancestral acres! – well, pleasant semi, anyway 😉
Had a lovely time with them (but couldn’t do much talking as I now have pharyngitis and my voice has gone kaput … WHO’S THAT SAYING HURRAY??? :> )
Then Daughter needed to do some urgent shopping so we went to the nearest town centre … and queued to get in, and then queued to get into the car park, miraculously found a space, carted two small children all over the place in the rain – and they were as good as gold 8| – then queued to get out of the car park … and the town …. etc.
Now wrapping up a pass-the-parcel for Daughter to take home with her for Granddaughter’s 5th birthday party! Like great-grandfather, like greatgranddaughter. D2 has gone out with D1 (eldest daughter) for a drink and some sisterly advice on how to run a children’s birthday party …:-/
So I’d better get on with it then :wave:
