My Mother's 80th Birthday Apron!

What a milestone – my mother turned 80 years old on Monday 22nd March 2010! And what a life she has had so far and the energy and vitality she still has today is truly inspiring.

Jacqueline and I also made an apron in her favourite colour “green” and embroidered an 80th on the pocket to mark the occasion! Of course it’s now her new favourite apron.

We had a wonderful time helping her celebrate this special occasion with our family.

    Thanks for the quotes, Maree. I’ve saved a copy of them to cheer me up when I’m feeling “older”!!
    I’ve just reached the big six zero, and my saying is that it’s better to reach X years, than the alternative….
