Yesterday was a good day. We took Mum out for the afternoon to a local event to celebrate Armed Forces Day. There were marching bands and parachutes, a veterans parade, a petting zoo and owls. Mum didn't like being pushed across the grass in the wheelchair, but that was the only difficulty. The highlight of the afternoon was, without doubt, the ice cream cornet!! I had to hold it for her and by the time she'd finished we were both covered in ice cream but when I asked her if she'd enjoyed it she smiled and said "very much!" Moments like that are rare these days and so all the more precious.
