Yes, I’m back at last. I’m afraid things have been a bit fraught these last few weeks as all my grandchildren have been ill with the dreaded swine flu.
Thankfully, and fingers crossed they are all on the mend and will be waiting for Santa to bring their special presents.
Last April I was 65 and begged for a low key celebration remembering my 60th!
At that time I said to Mike that I would love to go to Paris to celebrate my birthday as I had never been to France and had always loved everything French. Probably because Mum was half-French.
Anyway, my wish was granted – we went to ………….
Euro Disney with all the family! Umm, not quite what I had in mind.
This year we just went to Bournemouth for few days and met up with old friends. Very pleasant and sensible.
On our return from Bournemouth we went to Lily & Dennis Crocker’s Diamond Wedding celebration which inspired me to start this Blog. It was wonderful reminiscing but I was acutely aware that we are all getting older and those memories of Summervale may soon be lost.
Since starting the Blog I have heard from several old friends -
GLORIA DIXON who gave me her father’s photos.
TERRY PELL (my brother’s age)
DIANNE MOTHERSELE who, through this blog was able to find out about her brother Michael who died
LOOKING FORWARD TO 2010
I hope to hear from many more people with their stories and memories of Summervale. Please contact as many as you can and help me out.
In the meantime
COME ON – GET IN TOUCH.
