Mam's 80th a Special Day

It was so good to get all of the family together for dinner.

Mam had a lovely afternoon and here is the picture to prove it,

Now the bag that she is holding is a vinyl print and the image I designed from a photograph of my Mam in her younger days, it was perfect to hold some craft goodies that I popped in for her.

Thanks to Inkspot photography for making the bag for me. They do them in all different colours.

Now you may of noticed the other thing that Mam is holding, there is a little story to that, whilst looking for a vase to put a bouquet of flowers in that was from her late Brothers wife she found this hand made little Calander which was made by her late friend Evelyn, what is even more interesting is that the little Calander that is attached was dated 1953 which was the year my Mam and Dad was married.

I know it was all most likely to be coincidental but it did make my Mam feel like everyone was with her for her special day.
