This weekend it was my Great Grandma's 90th birthday.
As it was such a special day, all of my dad's side of the family came together for a nice little surprise gathering at his new house, where my Grandma was brought to see it for the first time. Little did she know it was all for her! Food, drinks, banners. The lot!
I've always seen my Great Grandma as the 'wise owl' of the family - she always has plenty of good advice and I've never known anyone quite so happy in their own company as she is. My sister and I used to stay at her house a lot when we were younger and she created so many happy memories for us; she's where my love of painting comes from too, so it was nice to create a memorable day that was just all for her.
It was great to have the majority of the family round too - it's very, very rare that we're all under the same roof (in fact, I can't even say its happened since I was a child!) so I definitely had an amusing time, to say the least!
