Home time

2 Comments

While the circumstances of my spontaneous visit home to Ontario were not ideal (if dad really wanted a visit he didn’t have to go to such extremes as having emergency open heart surgery) it has turned out to be a really lovely time at home with my family. We’ve had some amazing sunny days and lots of time with cousins and at the beach, the park, out for bikes rides and eating our weight in ice cream in Port Dalhousie.

The only smile I ever managed out of my nephew Gethyn, who was otherwise wary of me for the whole visit.

With dad home and well, back to his baseline and joking that he really did all this just to get the free membership at the YMCA for rehab (always hated to pay membership fees, that cheapskate), we managed to make a not so great trip home, into a great visit.
