Happy Birthday to my mum


Oh well here I am back again I have had a few busy days as per usual and yesterday I ended up the phone to Telstra about my email, this time I think it has been sorted out and I am hopeful not to have any more problems.

I had planned to write this on Thursday but with one thing and another I didn't get it done so I thought I would do it yesterday but ended up on the phone to Telstra for so bloody long that by the time I was off the phone all I wanted was a nap.........................lol

Anyway this post is about the most amazing woman I know................MY MUM..............on Thursday she turned 74, yeah mum is 74 and has she slowed down any, no she hasn't, on Thursday she spent the morning looking after Denni while Sandra drove Temika to day care this mum does every morning, she then drove Kayla to school and Liarna to day care after picking me up on her way through. After dropping the girls off we went to the nursing home and saw nan, after going home mum had to get my brothers lunch and then after lunch mum and dad went out to a shop. In the afternoon she had to watch Denni again while Sandra went and picked up Temika.

My mum is so amazing she is not just my mum she is my best friend I don't think my looks or acts like a 74 year old woman she is always so busy, running around after her grandchildren and acting as a bank for some of her children (not me)...............

Mum is more like Dawson's mother than his grandmother she has cared for him since he was born and is the person he chooses to be with more then either of his parents, it is not unusual for Dawson to say he doesn't want to go to his mum's or his dad's place on a Friday afternoon wanting to stay at the place he calls home.

Mum also takes care of dad which some might think is not a big deal but dad is becoming more frail as he gets older and his memory isn't all it use to be and he has had a few falls due to loss of balance.

Mum is one of those women who says she doesn’t have time to be sick and will joke that she has to pencil in a time to be sick and if that time conflicts with something more important she will have to change the time to be sick...............lol
