Earlier this year I was determined to gather family and friends around our table.
On Sunday, we did just that with my extended family, celebrating Mother's Day and my parent's 40 Year Wedding Anniversary.
Plenty of coffee, good food and mimosas.
It was just what I wanted.
The wedding albums came out and we toasted the remarkable achievement that is 40 years of marriage.
And then everyone went home and my love and I went to the pub !
