Happy Birthday to my Mother – 92 years, October 12
She lives in a nursing home in Oslo, Norway. She has her own room with private restroom, TV, cellphone, fridge and freezer. Even a small sitting group. Meals are served in the "Dining Room" and coffee/tea and some snacks served in her Private Room. Health Care People are there 24/7.
92 Candles on a cake? Well, we dropped it. Why? A Cake that big would be too much for my Mother;-)
Photos from today are taken with a bad iPhone 3Gs Camera.
But her hips are bad, hence she needs a Walker.
Together with, my now, eldest Son, Niklas, we paid her a visit this afternoon. I picked up my Son, who works close to my Office, and we went to visit our Family’s Grand Old Lady.
Here you see my Mother and Son: She loves her Cell Phone.
We brought her some red wine, which is good for her Blood Circulation, but most important photos (A-4 Seize) of her Grand Children who lives abroad – and their respectives
– Here Ingelin with Kaya at Cypros October 2011 – They live in Germany.
- Mats and his Wife Lori and Anna – in Chicago – July 2011. They live in USA.
Even papa was there;-)
and not to forget, I brought some Photos of her Great-Grand Children – important Photos.
I printed a douzen - Below some of them...
Metin Leander (2 years on Oct 25)
Sebastian (He was 10 in June this year) – Anna in the background
Filip ( 26 years)
Here is Marie-Louise back in the early 1950’s – with my Father in the Garden at the peninsula Bygdoy in Oslo
My Mother, Marie Louise, was very happy about receiving the Photos, but she was very occupied watching a TV-series;-) So we stayed about 80 minutes. Then I dropped off Niklas for his afternoon work and picked up Anna from her work before returning to our Winter Home - 15 km south. (Nearly 10 miles)
My Mother has her own Life. No doubt;-)
Have a great week everybody.
There will be more from Provence in my next post: A visit to a very special Restaurant in Ollioules…. I say no more…
