    love those old photos & isn't her wedding dress just so simply gorgeous!?
    thanx for sharing

    1. hi Selina...Mum was onlt 18 yrs old then and her waist was 21 inches! When I was about 8 yrs old she gave me the dress for playing in...I couldn't do it up and I was a skinny child...I ruined the dress by playing outside in it.

  2. Congratulations to your parents on this special anniversary, Sue. I just love that photo of them in London with the pigeons.

    1. Hi Chel...yes that's a favourite of all us too, they both look so dapper and happy. I fed the pigeons in Trafalgar Sq too yrs later; I let them perch all over me not realising their wet and poopy feet would leave such a mess on my coat! Had to go into a nearby Pizza Hut cafe to clean up!

  3. A beautiful tribute to a lovely couple. Happy Anniversary to your Mum and Dad.
