Getting To Know You Meme - Day 3

Day 01 - Introduction
Day 02 – Your first love, in great detail

Day 03 – Your parents, in great detail

I'm sure you have all read a lot about Mum and Dad over the last few years - and, in fact, on their last birthdays I did a mini life story about them - here and here

So, what can I say?

I love them both, and hate seeing them get feeble, and their increasing age is increasing their stubborness.  However, even tough they are both in their 80s, they both have computers, last year the 3 of us went to Albania and Corfu, they both still play the piano.  They both still garden, and recently re-decoarted their breakfast room.  So, although they are showing their age, they also are "keeping going".

Dad had no love and support at home (my nickname for his mother is "The Android"), so dad, being of his generation can't tell yu he loves you - yet he would walk through fire for us.  And, you sit down in an evening, a cup of tea is soon made.  He left school at 14, served in The Home Guard, yet I went to his PhD graduation just before he went to my osteopathic one - and then 2 years ago had a book published o  The Revaltion.  I am very proud of him - one sweet, truly honest, man.

Mum had lots of love, but was babyfied and smothered ... and sadly as she gets older the more she does that to us 3 (and me especially).  She has had a couple of nervous breakdowns,a nd her self-confidence is non existant ... yet you should have seen the wedding dresses whe made for my sis-in-laws ... and the cakes she has decoarted in the past.  She refuses to give in - refuses to admit she is (maybe) getting older - which brings it's own problems, yet that positive attitude is truly wonderful to see.

They are a lovely couple of people.
