Dumplngs

Today would have been our Gdad (mums dad) 78th birthday, so mum went out and got some dumplings to cook for her dinner, as he loved dumplings.  When he would visit our city mum would take him out to his favorite Chinese restaurant for tea.  One night before they headed to a concert, mum suggested that rather than having a filling main for tea, that instead they chose about 4 types of dumplings and had a dumpling feast.  He grinned like a Cheshire cat all night.

  2. There is nothing in this world as wonderful and special as a really good Dad. That was a lovely special celebration. I hope Mum did not have too much of a heavy heart. It would have lifted when she came home to see you sweet Poppy. Bet there was lots of cuddles and a fancy feast for you. 😊
    I am lucky that I have about 200 letters written to me from my dad after I got married and we lived in seperate cities. He just tells me of their daily doings, about trips out, what our family cat was up to and progress of the chickens. He died when I was 24 and I still miss him but in a happier way. I don’t read the letters very often as they make me cry. But they are a comfort at times. Your mum is a brave lady.
