A Birthday remembered

It's Dad's birthday today - he would have been 91 (had he not passed on six year's ago)! So Happy Birthday Dad!

Mum is much improved and has now been to the doctor's. Prescriptions obtained from the pharmacy we arrived at her home and she's now warm and cosy with various medications, a bunch of grapes, some oranges and declarations of feeling a great deal better!

Thank you all for your good wishes regarding Mum.

Weather's going to be -3 tonight; not that that's particularly cold for some of my American or Canadian readers, but chilly enough for me!

I now have a couple of free-ish days so hoping the weather and light will be kind and I can get out to put my new camera through it's paces with some decent sunshine - fingers crossed!

Usual birdie visitors with numbers still nicely up and the Blackcap still visiting. Would now like a few Siskins again but they don't start arriving with me till mid January - and the Bramblings arrived about that time this year too! Here's to the 2009 arrivals!

Hi Tricia, just catching up with bogs after Christmas. I'm sorry to hear your mum has been poorly, there's a lot of it going around. Glad to hear she's on the mend. All the best BR

Glad your mum is feeling better, i know what a worry it is when they are poorly, we are staying just above freezing in cornwall with a bright and crisp day quite a beautiful day really.

Cheryl, BR and Avalon
Thanks for you good wishes and kind thoughts.

Just spoken to Mum again and she's feeling and sounding so much better.

It was freezing here at 16.15 today - ice already forming on the car's windscreen!!
