Another centenary...


My dear mum would have been a hundred today, so we're popping a few flowers on her grave, saying hello to dad as well and also stopping off for a couple of celebratory embrocations at the pub, which I mentioned recently, and is very close to the house which she loved!

I always think it's much nicer to celebrate someone's birth, rather than their death.

Here she is with ED, just a few short years ago!

Time passes so quickly. 100 years doesn't seem to long now.

Nicely remembered.

Spot on, EK!

It was a good way, although we did carry on celebrating a bit later on..;0)

Thanks, Reevers!

Off to your old stamping ground tomorrow, Henlow!

Last funeral of previous generation, but I'll do the rounds of all the old family houses in Letchworth and Baldock as well, plus make a very special visit to Welwyn GC, which I may chronicle in detail some time...

Your Mum would be proud of you dear Scrobs, such a loving son to pay a visit to her final resting place...
