There are four of us Jones girls. Lynn, Diane, Me and Brenda (age order) We try to get together often, although busy lives and work sometimes prevent that. But we always make sure we celebrate our birthdays with a 'Sister's day out' around the time of our birthdays - Brenda and I share a date as her birthday is the day after mine. This year is her 30th wedding anniversary too - they married on my birthday - and they are going to Madrid for a special celebration, so we brought our outing forward.
We take gifts with us wherever we go and have 'an opening prezzies' ceremony! As you can see, we had an open air ceromony this year - on the cliff tops at Filey.
Brenda got to go first...
(I'm only showing these two so you get the picture...)
The piccies of me are on their camera's! I didn't have as many goodies to open as they decided to fund my need for art supplies so I was given cash this year, along with a lovely cup, earrings, make-up and things like that!
This year we decided to take our Mum and Dad with us as both of them have had poor health and we wanted them to see just what we get up to on our legendary Sister's Days Out! They were very excited when I picked them up, they love it when their girls are altogether - and they got us all to themselves - no husbands, no grandchildren! Just like old times.
Mum loved every moment of it and so did Dad - especially the fish and chips part!
So that was celebration number two... and its not over yet!
This will certainly be a month to remember in my art calendar - So far I have only recorded a snapshot of each day and haven't even embellished the pages yet except for the background - I'm too busy socialising! (You all know that means I'm worn out, right?)
