Just had to get out the house today, so i couldn't think of a better day to spend it but with my Mum and Dad.
Mum needed a Daughter hug and defo needed hugs off them.
Dad needed to go to the Doctors today anyways, He has been suffering some tummy upsets for about two weeks plus. He can't stand his belt around his tummy. Dad has also been getting tired and now needs naps in the afternoon, He also doesn't have a very good appetite. Dad had asked me what he was going to the Doctors
Not so much about my Dad, i forgot to mention that i bought a new 2nd hand car not too disimular to what i already have. It's a four door... so more practical for my parents to get in and out. plus it's a little bigger for getting ALL our mega shopping in! and boy we can shop for Britain
I'm resting up today i have just give my back a twist so is hurting a little bit! I did manage to get out and do some shopping though this morning.
