Wed is my day off from paid work - and I'm busier than when at work! I need to get two assignments done for my course on Saturday, so I started the housework by stripping the bed at 7.30, getting the washing on and all the ironing finished by 9am, thank goodness. I'll work on the assignments until lunchtime, when I'm popping round to my lovely friend Helen. We're arranging a fundraising party for our charity Touch 1000 Lives, which should be good fun. After lunch I'll get back to the written work and be ready for our friends Julian and Kay who usually come to tea on Wednesdays.
Anyway, back to WOYWW (if you don't know, go to the lovely Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ and see what everyone else is up to). We went to visit my Mum and my sister who lives nearby, at the weekend, and Angela and I were looking through old photos. One of the things I'm going to do once I've finished my course, is to copy and frame old family photos and put them on the wall going up the stairs. These are a few that I came back home with.
I've got loads of pics going back to the late 1800s and it's great fun trying to identify everyone. For instance, this is my great grandmother on my father's side - I'd love to have met her!
While this next formidable character was my great, great grandmother on Mum's side.
These two were my great grandmother on Mum's side (on the right) with her sister.
