My Mum is 87 today – it is hard to get a photo of her but I am quite happy with this one …………. she is looking at me as though to say “Don’t be silly – I can’t be that old!”

Unfortunately she can’t communicate very well but her eyes often tell us what she is thinking. We can still see the love and laughter and her mischievous streak in these twinkling eyes 🙂

She doesn’t really understand that it is her birthday – but she, and her friends in the rest home, will enjoy her birthday cake. Sometimes she won’t eat her dinner ……….. but she will always eat the sweet treats …….. just like a child really!!
