A birthday

Today would have been my late father's 78th birthday. But instead it's a time of remembrance for me and my family. Last night I stayed over at my mum's, the first time I've seen her in too many weeks. I phone her every day, but it's not the same really. Anyway, it was wonderful to arrive 'home' to a smiling face and a hot meal. It was bliss to spend a bit of quality time with my family, something I wish I had the opportunity to take for granted.I miss my dad, even though he could be a pain in the arse at times. Christmas is approaching and I'm not sure I'm looking forward to it without my father.

Sorry you've been down, John, but am glad you got to spend some time with your mum.

Hope your Christmas day was a nice one, after all.
