Lifetime Friends and Memories

I have been quiet on my blog lately because I have been organising my mothers 80th birthday.  It was a lot of hard work and preparation but I have to say it was worth all the effort.  The day for my mum's birthday, and party, was yesterday (12th February).  It was one of the most uplifting and enjoyable days I have had in a very long time.  Many of mum's friends have known her longer than we have been alive and it was a pleasure to speak to every one of them.  From all different walks of life and all with so much experience in life it was wonderful to sit and listen to their memories of their lives.  I also had the chance to catch up with cousins and second cousins that I haven't seen for a while.  It was like we had only spoken yesterday, the years we had not seen each other just dropped away and laughed and joked together for what seemed like hours.  Anyway, now I get to concentrate on making a name tag and some sample swaps for S.I.T. in March - I just have to get my sewing room back together!!!    Robyn
