My Mum was 79 last month, my Dad is 80 on Sunday. Dad packed in work this year, my Mum completed the 700 mile South West coastal path – they are beginning to wind down.
All too often it takes a serious illness or a death to get you to admit your love for someone. I’m getting my tuppence worth in early – Mum and Dad I love you!
I hope that whether you’re lucky like me or whether your relationship with your parents broke down or if you’ve lost them, you’ll be able to spare them a warm thought now.
If you knew my parents you’d understand why I’m so proud to be their son and though none of their four children would pretend to hold a candle to their folks, I hope that we’ve given them some happiness.
