66 years.....


Today would have been my nan & gramp's 66th wedding anniversary....(here is a layout that I have finished for gramps's 90th birthday book)...they are a complete aspiration to me...One of my jobs today was to take 66 white carnations to the cemetery. Every year Gramps bought Nan white carnations for the number of years married on their anniversary, as this was what she carried in her bouquet....and in it he would write her a little note telling her how much he loved her. He was in bright spirits today which was a blessing, the first since she passed, he spent the time talking about all the tales from the day which was great, as some of them I had never heard...a 'scrappers' dream!...I left him watching the opening ceremony for the Olympics which was amazing....off now..may pop back later!
