Dad’s birthday

4th May 2011

Tomorrow is my dad’s 82nd birthday and the first one that my mum won’t be around to celebrate with him.  I rang him Sunday morning just to see how he is.  At the moment I do wish my dad lived closer so we could have seen him tomorrow. I know we chose to move and I don’t regret it as I love living where we do.  My mum dying made me appreciate how old and frail my dad has become.  At least he sounded a bit more cheerful when we spoke.

I wrote a short note to Anthony last week asking him to get in touch with my sister.  As far as I’m aware he still hasn’t responded to her. I didn’t expect Anthony to respond to me as he didn’t when I emailed him about my mum’s death.  My sister doesn’t deserve the silent treatment of him though.  I have tried yet again so I shall leave well alone for the time being until something else happens that I feel Anthony should know about.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
