First it was a matter of giving us time to settle in after our honeymoon. Then my father was seriously ill. Then Mum’s passport expired, after the rules were changed about needing a passport to cross the Canada-US border.
Then there were the excuses.
Finally, the new passport arrived. Mum immediately planned a trip.
We had a glorious visit – top to bottom. I think our smiles show that. And yes, it’s clear where I get the blue eyes from.
