Recently a little snippet of family history was imparted to me and I decided I wanted to write it down for posterity. ...not terribly exciting but I hope you will indulge me.
The little snippet....
Well it turns out my Grandparents were married on April 1st. It was an Easter Monday at the Woodford Methodist Church near Caboolture Queensland. It had to be on the Monday as my Grandad being the local Minister had services all over Easter.
My Nan actually told my Grandad she would not marry him until 12.30pm as she was
" No April Fool" lol! Obviously she wasn't as they had a long and happy life together and she missed him everyday after he died until she joined him.
I only have this one old photo of them on their wedding day....so serious!
They lived all over Queensland from Mareeba to Coolangatta. Whenever they had company for tea, and being in the church they had a lot..... they always took theirs in their own special cups...
The cloth I have arranged these little vignette upon was worked and crocheted by my Grandmother.
So Happy Anniversary Nana and Pop. I know you are together.
I do hope you have a lovely day folks
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
