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!

Gosh, its nearly a year since I posted last – sorry about that! David is now 17 and to celebrate the puppy went sledging in the morning with Family Y (younger elements of). Then he came back for the cake that his sister rescued after his Mother decided to take it out of the tin when it and the icing was still ward. It promptly fell to bits and half was mush – great tasting mush I hasten to add! Anyway Rachel saved the day and turned it into an iceberg with a penguin, and just to be topical, it even showed evidence of global warming with grass at the bottom!! In the evening it was over to Manchester to the JS bar with Grandma and Grandpa. Yes that was a magical relighting candle in the photo. Despite his provisional licence arriving on his Birthday by some fluke and a lot of grovelling by his Mother to the DVLA, he will have to wait to get behind the wheel as we value our lives!!

Yes I know it is nearly 2 months since this marvellous weekend but it has taken me this long to do the photos and the website. The photos can be accessed by going to the Photo Galleries Page in the menu on the left, and clicking on “Rachel’s Batmitzvah” – original I know! Even simpler you can click here
Smart observers will have noted that there isn’t a “photo carousel” as there is for the other Photo Galleries (you can still see the photos as a slideshow). There is a problem with this software which isn’t as yet fixed. That accounts for a bit of the delay as I’ve been trying to fix it for the last fortnight! Once I get it fixed then I’ll repost on here, as I will when I get the final speech!
Now to work on the holiday photos!
