Oh my...this frustrates me....I had written a long post and was so thankful just for the pure fact I could even post about today....and then the connection gets lost...and I loose my whole post! Other than the pictures thank goodness!!!!
This will be it was long...and now I am sleepy....forgive me.
Above is the view from my parents kitchen dad raised the Swedish Flag today.
My mother came from a town just North of Malmo...she grew up loving and working in the fashion industry and learnt how to weave...and this is how she came to leave Sweden....following her elder sister to Ireland, who is a very talented Textile designer.
My sister's son Morton, sitting on Mum's lap...aren't they a beautiful image. I love this picture.
My Mum is creative and talented.Happy Birthday again Mum!
She's 67...needs a new hip....and will hopefully admit to needing one sooner than later!
Doesn't she look good though for 67!!! Well done Mum.
Dinner:: Stuffed Chicken wrapped in prosciutto with porcini and portabello mushroom risotto, green beans and a spinach salad on the side.
YUM.Can I say YUM even if I made it myself?
Boo was supposed to help but ended up going home early...she has a sick bug...poor her.
WOW...we sound like our family is not very well...

Dad's in today for his Biopsy...fingers crossed.
Thank you again for your prayers and kind comments.

HUGS...until tomorrow.
R, I miss you tonnes.
