    Hi All

    A very merry christmas to you all and a peaceful new year. This is the 1st christmas in I don't know how many years that mum in law has not been with us on christmas day and it feels strange to say the least. We went to see her yesterday at the nursing home where she is very happy, she has no idea that its christmas, we gave her the presents we had bought and the one thing that brought the most smiles to her face and made her chat so much (even if it was double dutch) was a little cuddly dog which is like an handbag just big enough for her to keep all her tissues in, my son bought it for her and she was over the moon, guess for her 80th birthday in Feb we will be buying her a big soft cuddly toy as these seem to make her the happiest and its really nice to see her happy.

    Ditto Norman. We ate a huge meal at daughters,played with the grandchildren David kept to his routine and had his nap and I had a few glasses to drink. Taxi home and now David is ready for bed . We survived the day quite well but I still find it difficult to get used to the lack of emotion when opening presents. If he remembers what he's got tomorrow, I'll be amazed. A reasonable day though. While we're in a foggy gloom, Jude may be out sunbathing!!!

    Merry Christmas

    Hi All,

    Jude is most definitely not sunbathing! I'm trying to keep in the shade because it's absolutely baking here! It's Boxing Day Morning and already about 35C and it's only 8.15am. I've just finished an early morning pruning session on the orange trees and I figure the wisest thing to do is sit down with a book until 6pm, when it may just start to cool down....

    Sorry to hear the weather's pretty gloomy at home.

    Jude

    Took Lionel down to the beach hut this morning. "Winter Pimms and toasted teacakes" the family really enjoyed themselves, weather bright but cold.
    No reaction from Lionel, it was hard to tell if he was happy or sad!!!!!

    I think christmas has passed him by, he is with us, but not....you all know the feeling. Still we have enjoyed our boxing day. Take care, Connie

    Later this evening

    Lionel was like a different person this evening. Alert, making occasional comments about what was happening on the television. One son and family were still with us, and everyone remarked about the change.
    He has been the most receptive this evening that I have seen him for a long while.
    Off to the pantomime tomorrow, again with all the family (11 of us).
    Fingers cross that Lionel enjoys himself. Connie
     
  11. Merry Christmas all...

    sorry I'm a day late, but busy as a bee doing all the cooking and the eating etc. etc.

    Hope you all had a great Christmas - my best wishes for the rest of the year, and of course for 2006.

    :)
