Dropping dinner to my dad on his birthday
I hadn’t planned to do a socially distanced visit to my dad on his birthday, but sadly my Grandma (his mum) passed away suddenly in the morning.
And whilst it’s not ‘allowed’ to visit family, I decided to go and take my dad a birthday dinner and drop it at his doorstep, in a bid to raise a little smile. I knocked the door, left the dinner on the doorstep – then when they were inside I brought the kids into the garden.
It was so nice to see my parents for the first time in over three weeks – which isn’t a huge amount of time, but during that we missed Mothers Day, Arlo’s birthday, my brothers birthday and then my dad’s birthday combined with my grandma’s sudden passing. It felt like forever.
I was so upset seeing them but unable to hug them, that I immediately burst into tears, but as I drove away I knew I’d made the right decision to spread some happiness to my dad. Reuniting Supergamps with Sofia and Arlo was special during this time.
