The Oliver's Madhouse

When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

90 Years Young

The Oliver’s have had a hectic weekend this weekend however the highlight has been our trip to Leeds to see my hubby’s Grandma Joan who turned 90 on Saturday!

The unfortunate thing is although plans were made to celebrate at her home, about 3 weeks ago she had a fall and has been in hospital ever since.

Now I have to say Joan is a remarkable woman and has suffered over the last few years with 3 heart attacks and diabetes to name just a few.

At this stage there is no guarantee that she will ever return to her home which she has lived in for over 50 years, she is going to have to move into a nursing home to recuperate and depending on what happens from there as to if she will ever go home.

This weekend I have been thankful I have been part of such a fantastic celebration and thankful for my family.

I hope when I get older I will tackle whatever is thrown at me with the dignity that Joan has shown! She really is an inspiration.
