Golden Years...


On Saturday, my parents celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. We made the long journey to Norfolk to be with them for the weekend.

Congratulations to my Mum and Dad on this fabulous milestone.
I know it meant a lot to them to have all the family around them to celebrate their special day.
It was lovely for me to have my gorgeous girls all together too.
4 Generations - My adorable Nan (now 96 years young!), my Mum, me and my three girls.

4 generations again, including my Dad and my brother with his son.
A wonderful time was had by all...
Don't worry, I won't bore you with hundreds of family photos! Sunday was a smaller gathering for lunch, of close family at my parents Victorian home.

Whilst I was there, I took the opportunity to take a few photos of my Mum's collection of antique hat pins and china stands, as I had promised to show these on my blog in the past...
Unfortunately my camera appears to be on the way out, so they aren't great shots.

We're back home now after a lot of travelling in two days, but wouldn't have missed it for the world. It was great to catch up with aunts, uncles and cousins that we haven't seen for many years.

Have a great week,

    Dear Niki
    Its so nice to have photographs isn't it - memories in time tend to fade but just looking back at a photo seems to bring it all back.
    Tried to do the link thing as you said don't know if I've succeeded!
    Will have to wait and see.
    Congratulations to your mum and dad!

  4. Van Harte Gefeliciteerd ! Many happy congratulations ! This is such an achievement. As we all know married life is a verb: it is married living, and that is sure often as difficult as can be. But such a splendid celebration with 4 generations : geweldig !
    Lieve groeten

  7. What a lovely celebration and beautiful family. I am excited, as I have been able to find Turn Back Time on YouTube here in the US and have watched what is available to this point. I'm so happy! What a wonderful series. I can't wait for the next installment, and I truly do want to visit Shepton Mallet myself one day!
