OUR BELATED GOLDEN WEDDING CELEBRATIONS

It is said that good things are worth waiting for and this was the case for our little family party to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

Had we been able to hold it on the 16th September, the day would have been fine and sunny and about 25C.  We would have met at Karen's house and sat outside along with her frangipani and her hubby's beautiful orchids.    As it happened Sunday 8th October turned out to be rather cool with showers threatening so instead we met at the home of eldest granddaughter and her husband.

There was just the 10 of us as grandson had to work and of course our other granddaughter lives in the US of A.  Although absent they were in our thoughts as was my dear old dad as 8th October was the day of his birth, 132 years previously.

Karen had organised the goodies and the tablecloth was strewn with golden leaves and there were 5 lovely balloons as a centrepiece.




We had party pies, sausage rolls and cup cakes and even the cakes had little hearts on top with 50 on them.   Karen had done a wonderful job and we were grateful to C and M that we could hold the celebration in their home.

After that we all went and sat outside while the two little girls showed us their skills on the swings, monkey bars etc.  They can do all sorts of things that I'd never have thought of doing as a child!!


We both had a really enjoyable afternoon and when we arrived home there was our Candy cat waiting for us.  A delightful end to a wonderful day.

      Our Candy is a rescue cat and in the just over 3 years we've had her with us she has taken over. We love her to bits.

    1. It didn't seem like an anti-climas but as though we were actually celebrating on the day itself which made it extra special. Phil and I didn't even exchange cards till we arrived home that evening.
      Candy is always happy to have us home again.
