Time for a Party

The Jubilee weekend was amazing. The whole country seemed to be celebrating with river jaunts, street parties, concerts, parades, lighting of jubilee beacons, fly pasts, church services and enough bunting to wrap up the United Kingdom. We had our own celebration. It was this girl's birthday.

My younger daughter's Christening in 1978 with her three godparents

Because she is unable to travel, all the family went to her home and we had a wonderful time. The Jubilee celebrations added to the occasion. On the night of her birthday, there were village fireworks framed by her windows as though the show was put on specially for her. She was delighted.

Having her sister and family there was so special. She misses them hugely. She spent so much time during her illness at my home and saw them all the time.

We decorated the house

Her niece and nephew loved the bubbles given to them by her husband's parents

And even the moon put on a great show

Happy 34th birthday to my dear brave sweet girl

We all love you. x
