To Scotland!

on July 9, 2013

Today I am taking my mother up to the airport to fly to Scotland. My beautiful niece is getting married there. Some of you may recall that, having just recovered from a fractured hip, my mother fell off her bicycle and broke her pelvis in two places and her wrist in three. We thought she wouldn’t be able to go to the wedding but she is now almost fully recovered. Bravo, Mother!

    Julie, More power to her, just shows you her spirit and deternation. Good for her, I hope she has a great time. The worst part about it will be that long long flight. Remind her to do her stretching exercises on in the plane. Take care, Bill

  16. Astounding recuperation! The weather in Scotland sounds to have improved since I got back from there last week – good thing too. Hope your Ma has a great trip and a super time at the wedding.

    What an amazing recovery too. It’s much harder for older bones to heal and it’s lovely to think your Mother can make this long trip after such a fall.

    I hope she has a (safe) and enjoyable journey and your niece’s wedding is memorable. She must be so excited to be making such a journey for such a special occasion.

    Whereabouts in Scotland? Does she need someone to meet up with and show her some nice places?

    If she is near Glasgow I can take her to Loch Lomond or to some of the islands on the west coast. The temperature is hitting 30c and it should last for most of July. It’s nice and sunny.

  20. Hooray for your mom! Are you going, too?

    I hope that she has a safe journey. Certainly there is no better destination than Scotland.
