Surprise 80th For my Mum


We had a surprise 80th birthday party for my mum yesterday and boy did she get a double surprise as my sister had found and invited mums good friend from 50 odd years ago and the last time they had seen each other was over 30 years ago.


We had cousins and Aunty's from near and far,so good catching up with everyone.


Mum and her friend Carol used to go out together and loved the dances,the pic behind them is of them when they were 16 and off to a dance.


There was lots of chatting and singing my BIL is a singer and boy he sure put on a show we all sung and danced the day away,lol.


Mum and Carol having a lovely chat and the cat enjoyed it pats,lol.


Mum with her birthday cake ,she did well blowing the candles out.


My sister's Jack Russel had had puppies and my grandies fell in love with them.


Lol my DD2 and SIL had to check the grandies pockets before they went home to make sure there were no puppies in them,lol.

Life only comes around once.
So do what makes you happy and be around people who make you smile.

cheers shez xx
