This weekend .. I've been sorting out a new laptop - that works & doesn't cut me off half way through things .. positive letters don't flow easily from machines that one wants occasionally to throw out of the window!! So now I'm on the road to the 21st century!
Mum and I laughed lots .. as we usually do - her comments are "just so" .. completely pertinent to the subject matter .. - she's enjoying her lemon .. but it leaves less time to talk, as she gets pretty exhausted swallowing her 7 half teaspoons .. still the most important thing is she's enjoying them.
I took the time out - as my old laptop was also on its last legs .. so I couldn't easily do much pc work .. - however, I have not been slack!! I have written over 60 letters to friends and family .. I do a sort of round robin (every 8 - 10 weeks), which gives all the information, stories etc, and then send a card too with personal notes in - replying to pictures we've been sent, letters we've had, or cards etc .. they're always very appreciated ....
.... & there's method in my madness .. it generates mail back for my Ma!! More information to feed off, share and discuss!! I have a few left to do .. and a few emails to send overseas. It's been one of the best things I've done .. people like to know what's going on, & they can learn things from the experiences - I also did a couple for my uncle when he was in hospital before he got home .. & his friends and relatives all loved the positive take on the stories & knowing what was going on .. & I'm still the main source of contact at times?!
