The Half Blind Half Deaf Elderly Mother says many many thanks for all the congratulations. She had a wonderful birthday and "only sometimes feels like 80 years old"
Yesterday my little sister and her family flew up from Wellington to spend the day with us and celebrate this milestone. My nephew is a police constable so in the presence of a duly warranted officer of the law the "80 year old birthday celebration giveaway" was drawn. Little Sister held Grandma's Bowl and The Half Blind Half Deaf Elderly Mother drew a name.
And the lucky winner was ....
Oops can't read that can we...?
Congratulations Staci. We all hope your mother had a wonderful birthday too. And a gift package will be on its way to you very soon. Thank you all for joining in and making this birthday a special one for Mother.
And after all the official business Little Sister sat and read all the comments.... so just so she knows I saw her, here's a snapshot.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
