2   Another beautiful evening so we’ve barbecued again and enjoyed  a delicious supper with a glass of wine in the evening sunshine.

3   Twenty years ago today, we had just given my Mum the best send off imaginable and as it became dark we went onto the green near their bungalow and set off fireworks, rockets, in fact. My Mum was born on 5th November 1914, Bonfire Night in the UK and she used to say she came in to fireworks and would like to go out the same way. We did her proud! She would have loved it!  There were forget-me-nots in flower in their garden then and they are in flower in our garden now.

Sunlit Leaves, Clock Tower and Mum’s Birthday

1 The sun shining through these leaves in the park was just lovely.

2   I hadn’t noticed this small clock tower on a local solicitor’s building before. I think the sun must have caught the gold on it so that today I did.

3    It was brilliant to be back at Choir tonight – I’ve really missed it. We’ve started rehearsing for our Christmas gigs and it was so good to be singing in harmony again!  Driving home was delightful too as the town was being lit by fireworks all over the place. Mum would have loved it. She was always delighted that everyone was celebrating her birthday!
