My mum at my wedding last year - doing her best to be the fashion icon of the day, but a complete fashion CHALLENGE all on her own!...the journalling says 'Getting Mum ready to come to my wedding was always going to be quite an interesting challenge. Jenny and John (my sibs) took her shopping and she got a really nice suit to wear. We borrowed a good hat. I look at her face here - 80 years old - having lived through the invasion of Burma by the Japanese as a child, and then the Liverpool Blitz of WW2. She and Dad brought 4 of us up - well - on a minimum wage. She has a multitude of health problems. And although, on this day, she looked the part, when Nadia (dgd) put her to bed, she came to tell us "Did anyone realise Granny had two bras and no knickers on - all day?!" A fashion icon - no!' Secret journalling behind the photo will remind me in later years - of one or two other challenges she set us that day!!!
