Happy Birthday Ma'am - and Mum!

DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO WAS BORN IN 1926?


You'll see lots of photos of the queen in the next few days but probably not of my mum.  So here she is, enjoying her own 90th birthday celebrations, along with some of the highlights of her life.

May 6 2016 on her 90th birthday


We made our mum a collage of some of the special moments in  her life and she remembered every one.  So If you have a friend or relative who was is now in their eighties or nineties why not do the same? And talk to them about the past. It helps keep their stories alive.

Happy Birthday Joyce, you have a very special daughter in Marilyn.
The collage is a lovely idea.

What a lovely comment! Thanks, Barbara. I've often thought that if everyone in a rest home or nursing home had a picture of their younger self above the bed it would be a huge benefit to carers and patients alike. Thanks for stopping by.
