My Aunty Jean and Uncle Norman came for a visit this afternoon. They're both in their 80's and I don't see them very often but they've always got a funny tale to tell. Trouble is they both talk to you at the same time, but about different things, which means whoever they're speaking to has to juggle two conversations at once. Jean is my Dad's sister. Ironically she is the oldest sibling but the only one still alive. Her brother died aged 23, her sister aged 48 and my Dad was only 47 when he died. There looks to be plenty of life left in her and her husband yet though. No homemade cake today I'm afriad, but they both have a sweet tooth so these treats went down well.
I made a quick photo collage for Joan when we next visit her. The staff in the home are really nice and will accommodate any personal bits and pieces in the lounge area if they're able to. As she sits in a corner near a shelf we'll be able to put this on there for her to look at.
I've also finished my second bag. I went for pinks and purples this time. I think the dresses and crochet will be put on hold for a while now while the house gets sorted.
I watched Vera last night and got all excited when I saw them driving over the causeway from Holy Island. There was also a quick shot of St Mary's Lighthouse in the background and a scene of the beach where we stopped to eat our fish and chips in another. I'll be taking a quick trip to the lighthouse and Whitley Bay later on in the week. Come along and see if I made it to the top or not!
