Birthday wishes, and thanks, and good advice.

I phoned my mother this morning. It's her birthday, she's 66 today.
We had quite a chat. I told her how life is treating me -- see my recent posts, in particular the immediately preceding one, for details.

She's pleased. She's pleased that things are going well. She's pleased that things are coming together.
She's pleased that I'm looking at the future with a new pair of eyes.

She doesn't read this journal terribly often, but she does occasionally.
I nudge her by emailing her a link when there are things like photos here, for example.
So if she reads this, I want to thank her for her support -- both over the last couple of years and the last couple of months.

My mother's great. Happy birthday to her.

I've just seen a television advert for UEL. It said "Love your future".
Good advice.
