Myrtle's 70th Birthday Party...


It was my mother's seventieth birthday on Sunday so we had a family get together for her thrown by my sister Joanna and her husband Martin at their place out in Benington. It was so lovely to see so many of my cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles together. And I think my mother had a good time judging by her big smile she had on her face all day. And in case you were wondering, our nickname for her is Myrtle (although her name is actually Kathleen).

I took loads of pictures most of which you can see here.

  1. Lovely pictures, seem like nice people, understated elegance (your mother in particular) without a fashion-victim in sight!

    I think I recognise the man in the brown jacket...

  2. Bless you, Gert.

    The man - well, *men* really as there are two of them methinks - are both called Simon. One my brother and other my cousin's husband.
