Baby Sitting, Wedding Anniversary and a Walk

26 Aug

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

3    We had a lovely walk with the grandchildren and daughter No1 today, Skype with our son and his wife in Barcelona and then a meal out tonight with family – what a beautiful day to celebrate 46 years together!

      Thank you, we did! It was so lovely to have two daughters, a son-in-law and two Grandchildren here to celebrate with us. 🙂

      Indeed it is, something remarkably precious about it that you don’t realise until you get there!
      Our day was lovely, thank you, made all the better by having so many family with us. 🙂

    I know 50th is golden, but who knew the 46th was a two f’ur of Gran-kiddies , makes sense if you think about it.

      Love the soundtrack suggestion – thanks! And, yes, the Grandkidlets do make sense of it all! Thank you for your good wishes and always enjoyable comments. 🙂
