I promised you a few more photos from my parents' wedding on 4th March 1967 once I'd had a sort through them.

So guess what I was doing at the weekend!




Pictures! )

This coming week marks a momentous occasion in my family - one that will never happen again in my lifetime.  On 4th March 2017 my parents will celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary.

50 years of marriage - 50 years!

Those 50 years have had their fair share of ups: family births, great achievements and becoming parents-in-law; not to mention a few significant downs: unemployment, a cancer battle (a successful one thankfully), and deaths of loved ones.  But they've stuck it out and now here we are, 50 years on, and they're still together, still in relatively good health and still driving each other nuts.

I'll be spending their anniversary weekend with them - I wouldn't dream of being anywhere else, but in the meantime I've been indulging in a bit of nostalgia by looking through their wedding photos. (Is it nostalgia if it's something that happened before you were even conceived???)

Their wedding pictures are so evocative of the era, and my Dad looks like a total Buddy Holly clone.  My Mum is a beautiful bride and I know everyone in the family was so proud of her.

I'll post a few more pictures later in the week as I sort through them - they're worth seeing just for the fashions! But in the meantime, here's one of my favourite pictures of the happy couple.

It's been rather nice having this few days off with not much planned.

Admittedly, the stupid lurgy more or less obliterated my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day from a social point of view, but I've still had a nice break.


Proud Auntie! )

In gratitude and remembrance of all those courageous men and women who fought and died so that we would enjoy life and liberty.



In loving memory )

Lots of sauce in this chapter, and I don't mean the tomato kind ...

It's Father's Day here in the UK.

I phoned my Dad to wish him happy father's day this morning and true to form, all he wanted to know about was how I was getting on.

He always says he's proud of me, but I'm proud of him too.  I've always been Daddy's Girl and will always be.

Here's my Dad! )
