My parents came to visit this weekend! We originally had a visit to the huge Willowbrook Hospice warehouse planned but when we arrived after a lunch out at 3.40pm it was closed. I felt disappointed, because I know its a place both my Mother and Father would be lost in – but it gave us the opportunity to show them the splendour of Pennington Flash (I vlogged about Pennington Flash here!) which wasn’t lost on them.
The boys played with a rugby ball at the waters edge and me, Megs and my Mother had a catch up over a coffee (Megs had an ice cream, she hasn’t developed a coffee addiction just yet..) at a picnic bench which was perfect for her in her wheelchair with a beautiful view of the flash itself. I really enjoyed the opportunity to chat with my parents and get to see them – they make my life so much brighter and while they’re over an hour away we talk a lot on the phone and online, being so close knit we love nothing better than spending time together!
It was sad when they had to make their way back to the M62 to Bradford, but I was happy they’d explored our home and spent some time with us. It was Mike’s 33rd birthday that day too, so it was a fantastic way of celebrating! All I want next time, is for my Grandmother to venture over and things will be complete.
