Goodbye Ruby Sunday/Wednesday

Tags: , , ,

Last week was spent with my parents, due to their ruby wedding anniversary occurring. The day itself was Sunday 24th, but for logistical reasons the small celebration took place on Wednesday. Family were represented by myself, my sister and her boyfriend, Mum's brothers' families and Dad's cousin, and there was an assortment of local friends of my parents.

Come to think of it, they've spent thirty of the forty years living in the area, as we moved to Glendaruel round about Easter in 1975, so the locals are practically family too!

Both Mum and Dad seemed to enjoy themselves, though it was a long day for Dad in particular - he's not very mobile following a couple of strokes and a matching number of heart attacks. He seems to have responded well to being put on warfarin since the New Year though, which is a relief.

congratulations to them for the longevity of their marriage and for having produced you (and your sister) along the way

and for having produced you ... along the way

I think you missed out "commiserations" after that "and" :-)

Glad to hear they're doing fine! Mine had their Ruby wedding last year, but they never tend to make much fuss over these things. Family parties were something we've never actually had.

We don't usually make a big deal of such things either, but Dad's health prompts some reconsideration.
