16 August 2008







Back from Berkshire and my parents' Golden Wedding celebrations. The forecast torrential rain held off, the sun shone brightly, and we all enjoyed a wonderful lunch and a very pleasant afternoon, chatting and playing in the garden.



My sister asked her florist to re-create our mother's wedding bouquet. It turned out more of an 'interpretation', but it looked OK and provided a nice surprise.


Fifty years of happy, loving and harmonious marriage - truly an achievement worth celebrating and an occasion on which to give thanks.

Congratulations to your parents - they look a very handsome, happy pair. And the cakes and flowers look so lovely in the golden colours. Teresa

Thanks, Teresa - if I have even half their physical energy and mental agility when I am 80, I shall consider I'm doing extremely well! I'm biased, of course, but they're a pretty amazing couple.

How lovely, and how encouraging. I wonder how many modern couples will make it to 50 years. Your mother is particularly good-looking.

Please send them my congratulations.

Sorry this is so late - I've been internetless for the past three weeks.

What a lovely remembrance of this special day. I liked your adjective 'harmonious' - what a gift to give to their children, a household of harmony. A word I don't hear often enough.
