You can call me TC (Granny AND Granny-to-be)

My mother will be 95 next month. I feel such guilt that she's still absolutely fine and, apart from repeating herself more and more often, she is mentally quite capable, too, while you have more than your fair share of worries and work.

Many happy returns to your Mum, GB, and have a lovely day. I'm sure you'll be allowed on the bus if you're carrying a cake.

I hope your mum enjoyed her cake! It's a tribute to your fine caring that she has survived to such a ripe age.

Thanks everyone, we did have a lovely day. I also bumped into an old friend and a new friend, smiley - smiley

My niece took a short video clip of Mum on Monday night, (perm day) as they were delivering cards & pressies. It's only 15s long: http://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152711891691970&set=vb.552421969&type=2&theater it is public so I don't think anyone should have any problems viewing it. The question was, what advice would you share with us, that you have learned over your 95 years?

We had another lovely day full of new memories. Lunch at the Trawlerman (carvery) followed by a drive along Cleethorpes promenade boat- and bird-spotting, with me and my brother reminiscing about the old Wonderland (nothing there now but rubble). He noted the propensity of wind farms on Spurn Head, I thought they'd been there ages but obviously not. We'd just had lemon cake and a cuppa when the tea carer came and it was Bev, the registrar who'd registed my Andrew's birth and married my younger brother & sister-in-law. After an engaging chat Mum fell asleep and Bev's half-hour flashed by. She told my older brother that she didn't consider what she does now as work. What she did before was very stressful and full of red tape. I can understand that as I have a friend whose birthday is approaching, who gave up a good job in a Building Society to become a domestic helper, working to her own hours and her own boss. I guess it's all about finding something you love!

Must set off for Mum's while the sun's shining smiley - run

We're all still plodding on. My sister and brother booked the same weekend away (again) which means I'm walking there today for the 5th day on the trot (and also tomorrow). However, my son, his new wife and my two youngest grandsons are visiting and hopefully bringing fish & chips to great grandma's house. I've already got a chocolate cake to celebrate two of the family October birthdays while we're all under the same roof. (Mum 95 and Harrison, 6). smiley - chocsmiley - cake

Yesterday was great, although Mum got very tired and found the youngsters a strain. When Harrison arrived, I asked if he'd had a birthday, he said yes, he was 6 now. I said great grandma just had a birthday too! He said, did she? How old is she now? I said she is 95. He replied: "Ninety five (raised eyebrows), she's had a LOT more birthdays than me!" smiley - laugh

Allan's new wife didn't come with them as she's poorly. So there was room in the car for me so we all went to Tescos when we left Mum's. I offered to sit in the car with the boys so Allan could pop in and get what he wanted, but he said the boys would be ok, and they were! Jaxon held my hand, and Harrison held Allan's hand. They were perfectly behaved. smiley - biggrin I'm very proud. smiley - loveblush

my son took that photo and put it on my Facebook page on Sunday night. Jaxon was born in January 2011, so he's almost 4 years old. What is remarkable is he's the exact double of his daddy at that age. He melts my heart. Harrison looks like his mummy, and look how tall he is! Big boy at 6, and doing well at school, despite some behavioural problems which remind me of Andrew. Oh and he was showing off his Head teacher's award for good behavioursmiley - biggrin

Wow, sorry about the two-month gap.

Mum's well though her swollen ankle/leg gives cause for concern, my sister & younger brother keep writing in my log to ask for medical help even though I've told them it's her heart not working properly and her lack of exercise causing the oedema.

We've had another visit from my older brother and his wife, a lovely treat for Mum getting taken out for lunchsmiley - sporkwhich she did full justice to. They delivered Christmas presentssmiley - headhurtsand I was dreading having to do Mum's Christmas shopping as well as my own, being dependent upon buses as I am now, when my sister announced she'd done it allsmiley - puffexcept for my 3 grandsons and my own gift, which I'll choose and bill my younger brother.

I'm pleased the same arrangements are in place for Christmas Eve-Dec 27th as was last year, Mum's going to my sister's, hopefully someone will give me a lift to the usual Boxing Day party at hers, and also a lift home for Mum on the Saturday.

I really miss my carsmiley - blue
