(this made me smile!)

Thank you so much for all the happy birthday wishes, I had an absolutely wonderful day :)

The rest of the week-end I spent mostly with my Dad.....last night when he had finished eating, I wiped his hands clean and he instinctively turned his head up towards me for me to wipe his face.....not that it needed it or that I have ever done that before, he just did it. So I wiped his face gently....and, for me, it felt as though some unspoken words passed between us - that small gesture said really does come full circle.

Happy Wednesday....

  2. hi Simone

    A very belated happy birthday to you. I am glad you had a lovely day and I am sorry about your father - in a funny way it can be really hard to learn that they need us just as much as we need them!

  13. Simone, happy birthday!!! This is such a beautiful post, and how adorable was ""Mummy, look at my first muscle!!" :):)

    Your words about your dad were so touching, what a special & emotional moment. I'm so sorry you are going through this hard time, but glad that you are able to draw strength from the sweet moments like this. You are in my prayers & thoughts, sweet friend!

    I'm glad you had a lovely Birthday.

    Loved your words.

    I'm Twittering the royal wedding live for LOVE magazine with Giles. It should be fun. We're having Champagne and a retro buffet at my house.

    Fingers crossed the dress will be by Sarah Burton at McQueen, it will be much more interesting if it is.
