Happy Birthday to my mum

Today is a reminder of just how fast the years are flying by, as it hardly seems any time since I posted photos of my mum's 80th birthday, and today she is 82 years old! Mum is the one in front right of the photo.

It has been a busy couple of weeks for mum and dad, as relatives from Queensland are staying with them. It is a long time since I have seen some of my cousins, so it was a great catchup, and a reminder of good times growing up. My mum is one of 10 children, who produced 45 children between them! So family get togethers were always rather large, and fun.
Front left in the photo is one of mum's sisters, aged 85, and standing at the back is one of her brother's, aged almost 84. There are 6 of the 10 still living, so must be good "genes"!

Time for turning on the machine, another quilt loaded and ready to go. Looks like a lovely day outside, so maybe some gardening time later.

Blessings, From Jude

Happy belated birthday to your Mum. Mine got through till she was 82 and her older brother is still living, so that's a hopeful sign. Take care.

Great to have a family catch up, particularly so close to Christmas and when families can be spread so far and wide.
