My Mum was here

My Mum came to stay for the week. It's been one year since she was here last, so I made the most of her being here. On Tuesday, we went for a Pedicure, out to lunch and shopping.

My Mum let me add some colour to her hair after having it cut! She was a bit concerned about what Aunty Beryl may think, but Aunty Beryl thought she was a "Groovy Granny", I think my guys were more shocked.

Aunty Beryl was a Pastry Chef in her younger years, (She owned "Coronation Cake Shop" in Preston) and boy can she still cook up a storm.

We had a feast of home made pasties, sausage rolls, cucumber sandwiches, little cup cakes, home made pavlova, lamingingtons and scones, using the finest china. Actually we couldn't eat the Pavlova so I brang it home for my guys.

This is a picture of Aunty Beryl aged 87 now- holding a photo of herself at the age of 22. Wasn't she beautiful and she still is!

What a lovely way for you to spend your week Anna. I know you enjoyed having your mum come to stay and I'm tipping the boys enjoyed Aunty Beryl's pav too.

What a marvellous, little story. You must feel really lucky with such a groovy Mum and talented Aunty. And isn't that picture of your Aunty when she was young amazing! Beautiful.
I will see my Mum (and Dad) again in August (it has been two years then). Can't wait!

Hi Anna,

what a lovely time you all had. I'm not a bit surprised Aunty Beryl wasn't worried about your Mum's groovy hair, but your guys were LOL.

Thats how you want to be at 87 :)

Hugs, Sharon
