Urgh! Dad visit pending. I have managed to keep him at arms’ length for quite some time, but he is “in the neighbourhood” at present, and just called to tell me he will be visiting this afternoon, on the way to take his oldest sister home from their excursion to visit another of his sisters about an hour away from me. These ladies are all in their 80s now, and extremely old school. They are innocuous and it would be rude not to, but, urgh! I made banana, mascarpone and caramel cupcakes iced with cream cheese icing last night, so at least will look like I have it together.
Wish me luck!
