Happy 80th Birthday, Mum! ...


This is the spread we (me and my 4 sisters) put on for my mother's 80th Birthday afternoon tea.

She had a lovely afternoon catching up with old friends.

The lady in the pink jacket was Mum's first new girl friend when she came to this district to live with her older brother and his wife.

This is the framed collage that we gave Mum. My sister Leanne had a local photography shop do the collage from photos that we all supplied. They set out the pictures and did all the hard work. There is a picture of everyone in our family plus old pics of Mum when she was a young girl of 16, her wedding portrait, her parents and brothers and sister. Mum was so pleased with it. It makes a great gift for someone who has 'everything'.

It was a busy day as we all went out for dinner as well - 5 daughters, 4 son-in-laws, 8 out of 10 grand children, their partners and 13 out of 16 great-grand children were there. We made lots of noise but it was fun!

Cheers - Joolz
