Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad...GOTCHA!!

I bet you've been wondering where I've been, I seldom leave almost a full week between blog posts, but last week was different.

Me and my brother have been busy organising a surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party for my parents, it was all hush, hush and top secret and as preparations came to a climax it was imperative that I did not give the game away. And if you know me (and some of you do, only too well by I had to stay away from my beloved blog so I didn't mention any snippet of what the coming weekend had in store.
Well guess what....we did it!!
The lovely pair that are my Mum and Dad didn't have a clue.
Reserved my Mum......don't believe it for a minute!!
Graham (my brother) drove them in the opposite direction to the restaurant to cleverly throw them off the scent of the venue, Me and Lovely Hubby decorated the restaurant with balloons and photos, and the restaurant staff pulled out all the stops with a fantastic buffet and bottle of yummy fizz to toast the happy couple.

Friends and family, who had all kept the secret SO well, partied and caught up on news, everyone was brilliant, the atmosphere fantastic and (hopefully) a lovely day was had by all.

Reminiescient of 13th June 1959, my parents cut the cake.

And then tired but happy we went back to their house for coffee and the opening of their cards and golden envelopes. Their only task chose themselves a lovely gift with the generous amount of money given by all their friends and family.

Mum with most of her men.

Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad.

50 years an achievement and a challenge, and YOU DID IT!!
