my gran was 80 last week.
and what with everything that's being going on in the last month or so, i didn't send her anything.
felt bad - but then i spoke to her today.
she seemed so happy to hear me call, even though i had been crap (fair enough i did leave answer machine messages all over the place for her on her b'day - didn't know where she was though...)
anyway - we were chit-chatting about stuff & she asked me how the boy was.
man - that was hard. had a bit of a melt down & cried again.
and you know what? she was great. she never liked the boy. but she didn't say anything about it 'being for the best'.
she just said that, yes, it will be tough.
but it will get easier, and yes, there is someone better out there for me.
and she said that 31 is a good age - a fun age.
and when someone has been around for 80 years can say that, i know it must be good.
ah - family is good. they love me, even if i do miss their birthdays...
so, molly, i know you won't be reading this, but happy birthday!
