Keep on truckin (like My Mum)

Over the years she has suffered many ailments and I think she may have had something similar to us if not indeed fibro but she just kept on truckin and now, well next year to be precise, in July on her EIGHTIETH birthday she is getting married again(we lost Dad in '99)

In the last ten years she has moved twice, buying her own places, had a personal trainer at the gym, gone swimming and gone travelling. Then she met Tony and they are like a pair of giddy kippers, holding hands and going to country and western gigs.

She used to get so ill ( aches, pains, foot pain, overweight, fatigue, )she said she would not make it past 68 (her Ma had a strOke at that age)

but lookit, she is to be admired, I am proud of her.!!!!!

Take heart..................

The atmosphere was wonderful one of the best wedding's I have every been to .And when he got down on one knee and sang I'll walk beside you we were all in tears.
