We remembered our dear friend Aileen, who died last year. It was a wonderful memorial. Sad but glorious too, as the clan gathered to laugh & cry at our our memories & our loss.

Moving on to more cheery fare, My 9 yr old daughter, Bini, is suddenly very into makeovers. This is her attempting to make my curly hair straight using a water spray. She seemed to enjoy herself. Sadly I have no pictures of the actual make-up, which my beloved referred to as a Transylvanian hooker look...
Her first hair cut at a Salon, with proper hair wash & blow dry. Check out that Swish!
We saw my lovely uncle happily married. He is my Dad's twin & he gave me away at my wedding after my father died earlier that year (& he'd got divorced). So it was lovely to see him walk down the aisle with a woman we all love. He hired a vintage coach for us all to get to the wedding in. It was like being in an Enid Blyton story driving through the picturesque town of Ludlow!
