Celebrating life’s big events is the only possible subject for me to post today.
Here are the events my family has celebrated over the last three weeks. The birth of my fourth great-grandchild. The birthday of my oldest grandchild, Claire-Helen Linton. Mothers’ Day. My husband, John Fleming, turned eighty years old. My son, James O’Callaghan, celebrated his birthday on the same day as John. The marriage of my granddaughter Jane-Heloise to Colin Yeo. An almost forgotten wedding anniversary. We seem to have done nothing but celebrate life.
Here are more pictures of moments we shared. No wonder I think I am so blessed.
Introducing my newest great-grandchild, Edward Hamish William Linton born 21 April 2016. Beautiful baby. Congratulations to his father and mother, Bhen and Claire-Helen Linton.
Below, Edward with his mother, Claire-Helen and sisters Alexandra (15 months) and Elizabeth (5 years).
John turned eighty years old on 13 May. He celebrated the occasion in a number of different ways. He started with a 1.6 kilometre swim before breakfast on his birthday at Beatty Park.
Claire-Helen’s birthday, and John’s and my wedding anniversary were sandwiched between really big events.
On 14 May, Jane-Heloise Nancarrow and Colin Yeo married. Amazing! Spectacular! Beautiful! The marriage ceremony was held in the Tropical Grove at the University of Western Australia. The couple first met in the nearby Arts building.
And finally, I love this one:
Celebrating life over the last month has been exciting and exhilarating. I think I’ve mentioned every special occasion. It has been wonderful. But I am looking forward to a few days of less intense activity.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
