Thanks for popping in.
Wanted to share something really, really special with you. Yesterday, as you know, Mum and Dad celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, their Diamond.
We went out for the day; lovely lunch and then spent the afternoon sitting in the sunshine, eating cake and reminiscing.
Dave and I headed home before it got dark and had just got through the back door when the phone rang. It was Dad.
“I KNEW she’d remember! I KNEW she wouldn’t forget!” he told me excitedly.
Yep. There was a beautiful card from Queen Elisabeth herself, sent from Buckingham Palace, congratulating them both on such a splendid achievement.
How about that.
And the most impressive thing was that I had only applied online the day before!! Now THAT is astounding Service!!! I wasn’t holding out much hope that anything would come, being as Mum and Dad got married in Germany, and the Marriage Certificate was obviously German. But I submitted copies of their British passports too, and that must have done the trick. Mum and Dad didn’t know why I had requested their papers, or what I was up to. And I didn’t speak to anybody else about it, except Lynne Bishop and my Aunty Esther! Thanks for the info!
But I know for sure that Dad and Mum (but especially Dad) will have been absolutely chuffed to bits over that. And for the card to arrive the very next day on the actual anniversary day. That makes me want to sing for joy too. Little thing – HUGE thing.
And here’s something else which makes me so chuffed. Simon at work, who films and edits our Youtubes (and is just an all round good egg) rustled up this awards video for us. Well! I was blown away. Even if we don’t win a single award, being nominated for so many speaks volumes. So thank you for doing that.
