As most of you will know - this blog evolved from the subjects my mother and I have discussed since she had her major strokes over 4 years ago - she is now 90! Her brain has not suffered .. and she's still as sharp as she ever was - at times: inevitably she is slowing now .. though sometimes I wonder!
I would bring in items of interest to chat about - stimulating our conversations .. and these would spin out numerous strands of discussion points ... leading to me being sent home to find out more .. while Mum would have something to think about before I could return.

She said Summer must have arrived as I turned up in a light jacket and not a winter coat!

where we used to play as kids
That's my Mum ... still interested, still concerned for her daughter, and still interested in life - when she's not too tired.
Many thanks Deirdra .. and to everyone who reads my blog and has supported me here at the A - Z Challenge, and over the previous months - always surprises me. I love what I do .. and with your encouragement .. gives me some pleasure as I travel the long path with my mother.
|Taking tea at the Carbis Bay Hotel,
Cheers to you all from a sunny Eastbourne ....
PS - if you want to see some stunning pictures of St Ives Bay ... where my mother's family came from, and where we have holidayed ever since ... please have a look at the slide show on the Carbis Bay Hotel website ... it will only take a short time & they are beautiful .. including in the distance Godrevy Lighthouse, which Virginia Woolf could see when she stayed at the hotel, and where we too would picnic, jumps the rocks, watch the blow holes, collect shells ... memories!
That is Happy Hilary – that’s what HH is for ..
