It's my mum's 59th birthday today - no bus-pass til next year, so we went out with her birthday pressies. She wanted crafty stuff and she likes to make quick cards so i got her a couple of Forever Friends gift sets.
My dad is looking a bit better than he has been, although he has quite obviously lost some weight. He had a heart attack a couple of weeks ago and needs an endoscopy this week and a by-pass after the new year. I think he's also struggling with the taking it easy part - my dad has always been pretty active - he had a physical job before he retired - he was head forester, and being the boss he's not very good at asking for help or admitting his limitations.
Back tomorrow with a Pepsi update.
