Happy Birthday to my Mother – 92 years, October 12

Hello my blogfriends, today I will celebrate my Mothers 92. Birthday.
With You. 
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.

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.

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

Relaxing life at Bygdøy
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…

Happy birthday to your mother. How wonderful to have her close. I can’t believe how big Metin Leander is – I remember him just as a small baby from your photos. Beautiful pictures.
