My mother is 80 years old today!
This picture of her was taken at a wedding when she was about 5 or 6 years old and she was a bridesmaid.
We celebrated her birthday last weekend with a high tea, followed by a lovely guided tour through Panorama Mesdag, a special museum hosting a huge panoramic painting connected to her family history as her grandfather’s ships are portrayed on that huge panoramic painting. Afterwards we had cake and dinner at her apartment, it was a lovely, albeit totally exhausting day. I have lots of brothers and sisters and everyone came, including my two brothers living abroad. We were a group of about 20 people. Great day!
My mum is quite fit for her 80 years, here’s to many years more!
