tears of joy...

Good morning everyone...oh no the return of the snow demon has arrived here...would you believe  it caused over 250,000 houses to be without electricity in Northern Ireland...just what you need with sub zero temperatures isn't it, to not be able to put your heating on...but despite the shivering snow we headed off to get my Dads hearing aids...the audiologist is lovely...she is not only so patient and spent time explaining everything in detail buts shes beautiful too...long dark hair and stunning eyes...yes I know makes you sick doesn't it lol, shes totally smitten with my Dad too and seemed as thrilled as us about him being able to hear again...all the preliminary tests done she switched my Dads aids on...his face was such a picture as soon as she spoke to him...he turned to me and said 'omg I can hear'...well being the soppy bugger I am the tears just sprung up...I will never ever forget that look of joy on his face ever...he was so excited to be able to turn his back on us and still hear what we said and thats at the lowest setting there's another four levels he can go to...we took him for coffee after we were finished and to see him looking around hearing sounds coming from here and there and him turning his head to see where they came from was amazing...the girl behind the counter emptied the grounds from the machine and he nearly jumped out of his skin lol...the most amazing thing was when I got home though...he rang me...now phone calls have been pretty frustrating over the last few years and were shouting matches really for us to be heard...I sat on the phone for ten minutes to him chatting away at a normal level and he heard every single word and he was super chuffed that he could watch the tv without needing subtitles...isn't technology amazing to give so much back to someone you love...I have my Dads Birthday card to show you today...maybe not the best card I have ever made but I made it with him in mind...he loves blue so it had to have blue and hes not really bowled over by coloured images so I kept it pretty simple and let the My Mind's Eye-Oliver 6x6 papers shine instead, I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...right I'm off out to test more hearing things for my Dad today...cant wait...whatever your up to have a fantastic one

sooo glad your dads hearing aids are working well. My mum is also pleased with hers that she got on Monday - she says funny things like - ooo isn't it loud - when she flushes the toilet or opens a sweetie wrapper. We do take things for granted don't we! Love your card too Mina xx

I'm delighted for your Dad, Mina. Technology is wonderful! And what a fabulous card you have made for him. You say it's maybe not the best card you have made but I think your paper choices and bold number (which I just know you cut out by hand) with the pretty bow and embossed sentiment are lovely and I'm sure your Dad will too! Hugs, Lesley

Your post brought tears to my eye about your Dad! He is so lucky to have such a wonderful daughter caring for him! Both my parents are now gone and I miss them all the time. Your Dad will love his card. I made my Mom a card that she loved and I lost her two weeks later but I will remember how she looked at it and in her little voice with that English accent I have loved so dearly said " Isn't It Just so lovely"!
Big Hugs to you and yours
