Gran at 80
Today is my Gran's 80th birthday. How about that! Her three daughters are celebrating with her today and the family is gathering at the weekend, though sadly we can't make that. My Gran isn't a silver surfer so she'll not see this but I think she's great. She grew up in Wandsworth though she was evacuated during the second world war. On returning she married my Grandad, 11 years her senior who'd returned from spending much of the war in a PoW camp in Poland. They were married from 1951 until his death in late 1995. She's remained amazingly active and involved in her local church, the Mother's Union and National Trust ever since. Happy Birthday Gran!
