To my parents..

They are the reason I'm still alive, what with their administering my medication when I was on the 'edge', making sure I ate and drank, kept constantly reassuring me that it was going to be ok.... They held me up every step of the way, financially as well as emotionally...

Well, had my second pay packet through yesterday and thought it was time to buy them the Christmas and fathers/mothers day present I owe them as they haven't had anything off me for some time as I checked out of everything remotely celebratory and went away on my own at Christmas as I didn't want to participate in the presents and laughter and games.

Today I have fitted their house out with a brand new suite of matched locks on every door and gate, the very best available as lock snapping has become somewhat of a pandemic over here and their house is full of their life memories and all dads techy gizmos!

They are away for the week and have no idea I've done it. The first they will know is when they get back Sunday evening and their key wont work in the door! It won't even go in the hole!

Dad is literally going to pee his pants!

For 26 years they have had the biggest bunch of keys I've ever seen outside of a museum or local jail!

I've just removed 9 keys from it and replaced it with one!

No more will mum yell at dad because she "can't get the BLOODY patio doors open cause all the keys look the same!"

It's a reassuring sound I'll miss as its echoed around these 4 walls ever since I was 11!

Can't wait to see their faces...

What a wonderful gift to them! You know they don't expect payback, I'm sure, but this is a thoughtful and unique way of saying thank you to them. Well done!

I love this, forever! It's clear what a fantastic support they have been for you through all of this. They've been stitched through your posts since the beginning, and they sound like amazing, loving parents.

Can't wait to hear your Dad's reaction.

Thanks ladies.

I know they don't expect anything for what they have done but I really just wanted to give......

I will let you know what they say when they get home Sunday

Best make sure I'm home for them or else instead of being happy they'll be stranded outside in the rain LOL

Well my expectations of dad "literally peeing his pants" couldn't have been more appropriate!

Lucky I was home as there was me vacuuming in the kitchen as dad ran past the door, then back again to the other. Then he started shouting for me to open the door quick and that he was not joking.......!

Turns out he'd been holding on for the last hour skipping the motorway services so they got home in time to make it to he christening thy were due to go for..... LOL

Bless him. Once he'd finally managed to relieve himself he was very happy indeed.

Took them over the pub tonight and when we got back dad took great pleasure in opening the side door with his key, walking to the back door to let Ebony out in the garden with the same key, then walked across the back of the house and let himself in through the patio doors into the lounge with still the same key.

He's so impressed he's told his mates about it already, who also now want the same as do their neighbors!

He said he was very touched and gave me a big hug x lush

New business opportunity maybe LOL

Just glad they are happy
