It actually seems to be a pattern in our families as my Dad fishes too, as young children we would spend most weekends on the lake/canal fishing. Mum was never keen and hated the actual fishing but she would take her knitting or crochet and sit with us.
I clearly remember my brother not being keen on the maggots and I baited the hooks – yes I was a weird child too, I loved fishing but did get bored when I wasn’t catching and would annoy my Dad by moving up and down the canal and not sticking to one space. I was forever moving my rod around and recasting.
Dad didn’t fish for ages, even after giving up work but has just taken it up again and goes while my Mum is at work so she no longer has to sit and get bored.
As I said earlier my Father-in-Law fishes nearly every Sunday leaving my poor Mother-in-Law sitting at home alone, My Brother-in-law is usually off working at the weekends as he is a children’s entertainer or he is recovering from a post Football watching session.
Thankfully she no longer has to be a sports widow when left alone as Betfair have kindly sent me a Pamper Parcel which will be winging it’s way over to her next time she is too poorly for Church on a Sunday. Paul takes her to Church on Sunday mornings when she is well enough – sadly her treatments are taking their toll – the Chemo is horrible and Herceptin isn’t much nicer.
We feel she needs a lovely treat and therefore we are saving this wonderful Pamper Parcel for a day when she needs a pick me up and a lovely treat.
The parcel came beautiful packaged in a wooden box with the contents carefully wrapped – now I’m sure Anne won’t mind next time Phil heads off out as she can treat herself to a pamper session.
