We checked the weather forecast and set off for Whitby bright and early. On the way we passed a hotel called “The Salmon Leap Hotel” – to find out who were the leaping salmons of the Isaacs and Yechezkel Families watch the video below. Listen to how cruel they are to me!
We had the most amazing day and were so lucky with the weather, again! Sadly neither family was complete and bizarre as it may sound we missed the noise and the nonsense that the missing ones would have generated . . . but don’t tell them!

Last year’s “Joseph Meets Glee” was a hard act to follow, but they managed it! My parents arrived from Manchester for the weekend, just to see the show. So many kids, so much enthusiasm – it was a joy to see. Full credit to Sagi for organising, directing and being “The Man”. They have worked so hard and it showed. I haven’t met one person that didn’t enjoy it – and there were 450 over the 3 shows! It meant so much to the kids that they feel “empty” now its all done, no rehearsals – Rachel has a “little hole”.

What can I say, such a proud family! This was the most fantastic day and I even baked a cake to celebrate! Take a look at the photos and you might see somewhere that I just couldn’t keep out of the piccies!
After 50 glorious years, Ma and Pa celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary over the whole weekend, nothing like celebrating in style! Whilst their Wedding Anniversary is Jan 1st we started on New Year’s Eve, celebrating with Family Y (who?) Despite their advancing years Mum and Dad trounced us young uns at “smart mouth” and charades. Motzei Shabbat we had a little party, and a lot of mess and cake! Monday afternoon everyone was invited to Manchester for a slap up tea at Yeshurun. If you want to see some photos and music then click here.
Below is the book that was made of the celebrations – they’ve not changed much have they!
