Feeling rather sad today. My dad has been diagnosed with a not very nice potentially life threatening disease. I’m trying not to worry too much as he has further tests but it’s hard not to. He is in pretty good health overall for an 85 year old and he and my mum are fantastically independent. I have been so lucky with them so far so have everything crossed for a good outcome.
We went to see them both for a cup of tea yesterday and they were being very positive. He has even started decorating the bathroom! This attitude is what has got them to where they are, I swear. Neither of them let anything knock them down for long. I need to follow their good example.
Before we went round we visited a beautiful private garden. It was so nice, with gorgeous autumn colours. We had a lovely weekend weather wise. I could have worked all weekend as I had so much to do but everyone needs some downtime so I am glad we went out for a few hours.
If you are ever near Colchester, this is the one: Green Island Gardens. Well worth a visit!
