Spoke to Dad earlier. The weather hasn't been as bad today as forecast. They've done some low level walking in dry and relatively warm weather.
Dad had a good night down the pub last night - got his dinner and his beer bought for him by his friends for his birthday. That's always a good night out.
When I spoke to him they were just getting ready for the evening meal .... they'd over come a bit of a crisis in getting the oven to work. That must mean there is more than just cup-a-soup on the menu tonight if they are using the oven!
Hopefully speak to Dad tomorrow and I'll update again.
