……. after an energetic morning chasing all the smells in the forest 🙂

Taken with my phone just before Molly leapt into the river and came out looking like a drowned rat!!!!

Happy Birthday to my Mum who is 89 today – but she doesn’t know that it is her birthday as she has advanced dementia. Unfortunately this year she didn’t even know what her birthday card and present were, although I did get a hint of a smile when talking about cakes and candles.

Sad to see a vibrant Mum deteriorating so slowly, but I still see her several times each week to help with her lunch time meal.

One of her favourite recipes. which became one of our boys favourite winter meals, is Spicy Sausage Casserole
