Father's Birthday 2008

... this year was on the Monday. So the three of us siblings-plus-partners gathered at Loch Fyne in Farnham on the Sunday for a celebratory meal with Mum and Dad. Followed by the giving of gifts and general chat back at the house.

Mary and I did not hang around over-long as the back bedroom decorating was nearly complete and we were due a guest staying with us Tuesday (last) night. A bedroom needs curtain pole and curtains!

Chatting to a colleague on the Monday and hearing of her family's "X is not speaking to Y" and "I can't remember when we last got together" reminded me yet against how fortunate I am with my lot.

Sounds like fun. I have to agree with you. Thank goodness, I love all of our family--both the hub's and mine (of course). While the hub's is more clingy and knows how to put the guilt trip out there (you neva call your mutha), mine is more fee willing and "we'll see ya when we see ya, but we can't wait!" It always makes for fun times when you marry into the complete opposite types. Keeps me on my toes. I have to work at keeping everyone happy. Which is all good.
