Baby Sitting, Wedding Anniversary and a Walk

1   We are not really allowed to call it ‘baby-sitting’ but we have had the Grandkids to ourselves for 24 hours to give their Mum and Dad a welcome break! We’ve had the loveliest time and to wake up to little voices calling, “Can we get up now, Granny?” is a delight, happening as it does, only rarely! We made Pain au Chocolat for breakfast together.

2  It’s our 46th Wedding Anniversary today! We gave our parents 6 weeks notice of our intention to marry and no-one turned a hair! I made my dress and the bridesmaid dress for my little sister, she of the 60th birthday a couple of days ago, and Mum and I did all the catering, except for the icing of the cake which a friend did! We were awfully young!  I wore the Family Locket, of course.Wedding Day 26th August 1967
