What an unhappy couple of days I have had, but it has been extremely handsome son George's nineteenth birthday and that has cheered me up a bit. I didn't want to be miserable on his special day, and made a determined effort to keep a smile on my face. We had a nice birthday lunch. He has gone off now happily to a birthday party with his friends.
The day got better when out of the blue, my daughter Jodie, who I haven't seen for, unbelievably six years, suddenly appeared at the back gate. We hugged for ages, and there were tears, happy tears, and then it was as though we had never been apart. I am so happy now, and feel more positive about everything. Soon I will get to see my granddaughter again.
It turns out that she has been reading my blog from almost the day it started, so she has a good idea of what has been happening in my life. But it was the article in the newspaper that caused her to come and see me.
George's birthday will be remembered this year.
I hope you have had a good weekend.
