Today is my mum and dad's diamond wedding anniversary.
They tied the knot 60 years ago today, it was a cold February day with snow on the ground.
I love this photo of my mum showing off her ring to my grandma and two of my aunties.
They're not ones for big celebrations so it will be a quiet meal here this evening, but I got them some lovely flowers and some posh chocolates. I always order my flowers from my local greengrocer, he makes wonderful arrangements, this photo really doesn't do them justice, it's a huge bouquet. Included are roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, gerbera, lilies, alstroemeria, tulips, stocks, astrantia, gypsophila and a few which I don't know the names of.
I've arranged for them to receive a congratulatory card from The Queen so they'll be thrilled with that.
This is just the beginning of a year of celebrations here. It's Daniel's 21st birthday tomorrow and later in the year is his graduation, Eleanor's 18th birthday and Mick's 50th birthday. It's a busy year.
