Millie and my mother


Yesterday was a full on day, up early and off and in Adelaide by 9.30, and from there on on it got busier. Tabby and Millie and I went to see my mother, she wasnt good and sometimes I think it is sad to take photos of her at this stage as she was always such an elegant woman.
Millie was wonderful as she was such a diversion and quietly went about her business of trying out the chairs, looking at photos and paintings and drawing in my sketchbook. However a bit over an hour was enough and mummy got very tired so we went off for lunch with a friend before collecting Mary who has to have a nasty operation on her back and collect Tabby's John from the airport where Millie kept say MY Dad.
Today I have been to the physio and finally decided on a hotel in London, that took most of the afternoon.
Tomorrow we go to Melbourne for a few days and I have not got anything ready for that.

Hello Penny,
You are not in Melbourne for this violent windy weather are you? Here in Geelong we copped it about 4 p.m. yesterday but there were bangs and creepy noises throughout the night. Trees down here and in Melbourne.

Gosh but Milly has grown! What a delightful age! I haven't photographed mom in years, but I imagine that I'll regret not having photos of her someday, it's just too painful to see her in the ALZ state-of-mind.
