At the end of November 1987 - 25 years ago - Mark and I got engaged.
This is the moment that he put the ring on my finger at my 21st Birthday Party..
infront of all our family and friends.
Last Saturday night we had a family meal to celebrate this anniversary.
Everyone got into the 'spirit' of 1987 and dressed accordingly.
I'm a tremendous hoarder and I still have my 21st Birthday outfit - so I wore it again on Saturday!
My sister wore a skirt that she's had since 6th Form and a black C&A shirt that we had always shared
Mark and Dad wore DJs, and my Mum wore a pretty Monsoon evening dress.
My Brother in Law wore his 1980s leather jacket and jeans.
My nieces wore their latest party frocks and looked lovely.
I prepared a 1987 Meal..
Black Russian Cocktails
Pernod and Lemonade
Chip Chip Cookie Roulade
(Biscuits soaked in Tia Maria and smothered in Cream)
(A family recipie of Ginger Biscuits, soaked in Whiskey, with Lime Mousse on top)
(Ice-cream, fresh Rasberries and Rasberry Coulis)
A Cheeseboard of
Bavarian Smoked Cheese, Applewood Smoked Ceddar and Creamy Lancashire
We dug out all the old photos from the mid-late 80s and had a fabulous trip down memory lane.
Welcome to my new followers..
...and a huge "Thank you" to everyone
who helped me out of my technical pickle yesterday!
