A LETTER FROM THE QUEEN AND A WEEKEND IN ALDEBURGH
Mum and Dad had a smashing day on Thursday. They celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary at home with family and friends. The card from the Queen arrived in the morning and this took its place with about thirty other cards on the mantel piece.
There was lots of chat and reminiscing over a buffet lunch.
On Friday we left for a weekend in aldeburgh. We stayed in a lovely old house 5 mins from the sea. It was lovely for us all to spend some time together. Charlotte and Jessica loved sailing their little yachts on the boating lake even though Jessica was keen to jump in for a swim.
On Saturday we all went to southwold, we had lunch on the pier and had a few laughs in the bizarre amusements. The children and Michael then played on the sand while we took in the sunshine.
The whole weekend was great. Mum and Dad thoroughly enjoyed it as we all did.
Now Michael and I are sitting in the car waiting for our ferry. South of France here we come!
