My niece came as planned and we had a good chat about things .. we came to the conclusion that it would be best for me to first send my daughter a card that I had bought explaining why I didn't contact her on the day in question and just briefly how and why this situation has arisen plus assuring her how much I really love her and then finally adding that I will phone her in the next couple of days so she can put her point of view.. etc.
I went for my usual cuppa and sat in the café for about an hour just enjoying the different area coming back just before my niece arrived. She is such a tonic and nearly always comes up with a sensible conclusion to things that bother me.. and she is only 46 .. compared to my 85!

I always find that any friends that I make are a lot younger than myself and in actual fact most people of my age are rather stuffy and old hat.. so to speak! :eek:
