100 years

On the 18th of Feb, my husband took Mum and I to my cousin's house to celebrate Mum's sister (my Godmother) turning 100 years old. We all had a wonderful time.It was great to see my Aunt enjoying herself.
Aunty Edna (100yo) in the green blouse, and my mum Mavis (94yo) with their crowns on....... don't they look wonderful???
